Logo in Iron Man movie is oddly familiar

On Sunday I went and saw this summer’s first mandatory movie, Iron Man. It’s pretty good. The protagonist is the CEO of a defense contractor called Stark Industries. Here’s what his company’s logo looks like:

Seem familiar? It did to me. That’s because it combines elements of the Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman logos.

(Stark logo via Screen Rant, Lockheed and Northrop logos from those companies’ Web sites. And nautrally, I’m not the first person on the Internet to notice this.)

Okay defense contractor people, who among you is building an Iron Man?
