Steel is a movie. Supposedly, it's based on the DC Comics character John Henry Irons/Steel. Was anything from the comics used in the film besides having a character named John Henry Irons who puts on a suit of armor? Was anything from the film later brought into the comics? These elements include:
- A wheelchair bound, techy sidekick (in the vein of Oracle) nicknamed Sparky who Steel has will they-won't they chemistry with
- A mentor named Uncle Joe who assists Steel in his superhero-ing
- A grandmother who owns a soufflé restaurant
- A nemesis who worked with him in the past but stole the weapons that he designed; his villainous plan is to sell illegal weapons via arcades and the internet
- A younger family member (nephew?) named Martin
- A voice changer that can make Steel sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger
Additionally, I would appreciate if Shaquille O'Neal was at all referenced in Steel comics after the movie came out and bombed.
