If you haven't noticed by now, Kevin watches entirely too many movies.

This might actually be the weakest plot point in this film, now that I think about it.

SPOILERS ahead for Iron Man 2, so if you haven't seen it or don't clearly remember it and want to be surprised, STOP READING THIS COMMENT! XD

*ahem* So, we're going to eventually find out that the Senator leading this investigation is actually a member of Hydra. Hydra has deeply infiltrated the U.S. government, and even SHIELD itself. While it makes sense they would want the Iron Man armor, and that they would use any means to get it, that doesn't change that this might be the stupidest method.

Granted, in the comics, Tony Stark is kind of a jackass with his own invention. I agree with him being able to decide who he does and doesn't give or sell his armor to... but in an effort to prevent some evil, he also denies the world a lot of good. Anyway, Hydra (through the US Government) should have used this to try and get Stark to create a weaker version of his own armor. After all, even if Stark's suit is the best... what happens when he's facing dozens or hundreds of foes in "okay" suits?

Then they can acquire what they really want, after Stark is dead, or injured, or what have you. Even if their plan had worked... now Stark's going to be even more secretive with his inventions, and you'll scare many others into the same behavior. Hydra are crooks; they should want the American gadgeteers of their world to think they can safely patent everything, so they can then steal the designs!
