Steel is a DC Comics character. In the comic book, he was directly inspired by Superman when the Man of Steel saved his life (both literal and metaphorically). Since then, John Henry Irons sports Superman's shield as a homage to KalEl. At the movie, the existence or not of Superman is not touched, but John is related to the last son of Krypton via his tattoo. See more »
Steel's armor is supposed to be made from steel which he's forged himself. Despite this the armor and helmet flexes as if made from painted rubber throughout the movie. See more »
"Eat the hot dog, don't be the hot dog," best line Judd Nelson's ever delivered. Every superhero cliché known is thrown in and hammed up to the extreme. The father figure killed by the bad guys, the tech whiz buddy that makes all of Steel's gear, the big bad evil high tech corporation, the sidekick in the wheelchair with the touching scene in which Shaq denies help her back up after she falls out onto the floor, and enough horribly brain dead one liners to choke several giraffes.
