"No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach. Some were even screaming for being scared."
That's what 25-year-old Wang Kang tells London's The Daily Mail of the reaction from his co-workers when he walked into the office in a full replica of the MK I suit from 2008's Marvel Comic blockbuster "Iron Man."
And you thought you were cool wearing flip flops for casual Friday.
Wang, a Shanghai, China, telecom company employee, spent about three months and $450 constructing the MK I suit, which weighs in at 110 lbs. His next project? To perfect the craft and get the foam and rubber build down in weight so he can work on a MK II suit replica of course.
Aside from fighting supervillians in his mind while trying to type in the beast of a suit, there apparently is a benefit most people might not immediately assume - the chicks dig it.
"They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me," he said of the apparently hard-to-please dating pool in Shanghai.
Good luck with that, Wang.
