Whether you fell in love with him in the pages of a comic book 50 years ago, or when Robert Downey Jr. first brought him to the big screen in 2008, Tony Stark and his alter ego Iron Man have managed to charm almost everyone.

But how much do you actually know about the billionaire playboy super hero?

“Iron Man 3″ opens in theaters on May 3, and we thought now might be a good time to test your Tony Stark/Iron Man knowledge.

Below you’ll find questions about Pepper Potts’ real name, how Tony Stark’s parents actually died and where the L.A. based super hero is most likely to nurse a hangover after a night of serious drinking.

There are questions about the comic book version of Iron Man, and questions about the cinematic incarnation of the character, and how those two versions differ.

So take the quiz, and let us know in the comments how you fared.
