A telecoms worker has become an internet sensation in China after ditching his shirt and tie and wearing this home-made Iron Man costume to work instead.

Wang Kang left his colleagues stunned when he strolled through the Shanghai office entrance unannounced and began strutting along the corridors in the formidable ensemble.

'No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach,' he said.

'Some were even screaming for being scared.'

The 25-year-old came up with the idea after seeing the 2008 hit movie starring Robert Downey Junior.

He began building the costume at the end of February and it took him around three months to complete, at a cost of around $450.

But Wang said the effort had been well worth it - with his costume drawing praise from his bosses and compliments from women.

He claimed some had even 'fallen in love' with him because of it.

'They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me,' he said.

WOW! Talk about being both funny and awesome at the same tiime! :rommie:

If the women loved the Mark I, just wait until he builds the VI from the second film. It will be like Beattle-Mania all over again! Well maybe Beiber-mania would be more timely.

It may be mostly foam, but there's more than enough metal in that get-up that he wouldn't make it past the scanners at my office. :lol:
