NASA is helping Marvel rescue Tony Stark from space


Tony Stark, Marvel’s resident Elon Musk-like leader of the Avengers, is in a bit of a tricky situation. As we learned at the start of Avengers: Endgame’s trailer, Stark and Nebula are stranded in space, and oxygen is running out.

Twitter users panicked about Iron Man’s safety, begging NASA to help save Iron Man.

Now, NASA is on the case.

On Sunday, NASA tweeted Marvel and said it “heard about Tony Stark.” The Amerian aerospace administration stressed that Marvel should listen for “Avengers, we have a problem” from mission control. Failing that, NASA recommends “ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man.” That includes you, Bruce Banner.

Twitter was grateful for the help.

At the very least, it seems Thor is on the case. The photo is littered with cute Easter eggs, too, including a purple dragon that would perfectly help find Stark.

Hopefully, no one is distracted playing Galaga.

Avengers: Endgame is set for April 26. Here’s hoping NASA is able to get Stark back home next year—and maybe replace Elon Musk with him.
