Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr — the real Iron Man — has officially named Sydney’s Iron Boy, Domenic Pace, an honorary member of the Avengers.
Following a day of high drama that saw Iron Boy rescue Make-A-Wish Foundation journalist Hope Joy and defeat villain Ultron on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, Domenic received a special message from “Tony Stark”, aka Iron Man.
Downey Jr, who plays the hero of the Avengers action movie series, filmed a personal message to Domenic congratulating him on his good work.

“Hey Domenic, it’s Tony. I’m a little undercover right now. I’ve shaved the beard, hat and glasses, because in case you don’t know there was a civil war recently,” Downey Jr said.
“Trying to keep it on the DL. Anyway, I’ve heard you’ve had quite the day. It’s hard work saving the world isn’t it?
