^Well, I can't speak to whether PAD was deliberately alluding to Iron Man, but I think it's rather common in SF, comics, and animation for various characters to have weapons that fire from their palms or hands, for instance the Goa'uld's hand device from Stargate, so that alone doesn't prove he was. It's not even limited to Iron Man within Marvel; Doctor Doom and the Sentinels do the same (which suggests it's one of Jack Kirby's many characteristic design tropes).
