Thank you Nitz!

The most recent Extremis story was clearly modeled after Iron Man 3, what with killing Maya and having AIM use Extremis so it doesn't fit the scope of my notes; however, it would be interesting to list all the times a Marvel visual, power or story was adapted from the movies rather than vice versa.
