What are some of Iron Man's weaknesses? And what effect would an EMP grenade have on his suit?

More powerful powers/forces than his armor can compensate for.

He's shielded against EMPs, at least as written in his own book. Outside his book EMPs take him out just fine.

@Tem Borjigin:  
Yup, pretty much. Basically he's vulnerable to whatever his armor can't compensate for, like Brute strength of powerhouses and magic/reality warping/molecular manipulation. But at the end of the day Tony's true weakness and greatest threat will always be himself.

Alcoholism is his only weakness.

His own ego.

Sometimes his Ego is his weakness but there is not greater weakness then ALCOHOLISM. But any EMP or any device that could shut down his armor doesn't work so he doesn't have any special weakness.

Agreed. I always liked that Tony's weakness comes from himself.

@amazingfantasy: He really is something when you have a weakness that can't be used against you except if you don't fight against yourself.

@westfriesianman: He has added demagnetizing agents to his armor long ago and can use energy manipulation to cancel out magnetism. Marvel just seems to forget.

High amounts of electricity, magnets, metal/molecular manipulators, technopaths/A.I./machine manipulators, as well as vibranium weaponry. High amounts of heat/energy attacks would fry his internals also.
