LEGO gives more hints at summer Super Heroes

The first official images of this summer's LEGO Marvel and DC Universe Super Heroes sets are surfacing, and they're full of hints and spoilers for Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel. Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle has Iron Man and War Machine chasing after Aldrich Killian in a speedboat. It looks like Guy Pearce's Killian in going to be trying out Extremis on himself, based on the minifigure's face. That's a change from the comic storyline.
Next, is Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Battle. It looks like it's final showdown of the film and features Tony Stark in the rumored Heartbreaker armor. The questionable accuracy of LEGO sets hopefully means the Mandarin won't be driving around in a flame-throwing buggy. Man of Steel and the big spoiler for Iron Man 3 are after the jump.
Moving on to the Man of Steel front, one set has been officially revealed, but descriptions of the others two have been leaked. Metropolis Showdown features a battle between Superman and General Zod, promises a battle of Krytonians throwing cars at each other. Hopefully Zack Synder's flair for visuals will translate to a new defining take on Superman. 76003 Battle of Smallville is said to feature Superman and Colonel Hardy battling Zod, Faora and Tor-An while 76009 Black Zero Escape has Superman saving Lois Lane from Zod's ship, which appears to be the film's version of Black Zero.

Finally, the box art for Iron Man: Malibu Mansion Attack features the seen we saw in the first trailer where helicopters destroy Tony Stark's Malibu home. The spoiler is the figure in the Mark XLVII armor. It's not Tony Stark.
Yep, it's Pepper Potts in the suit. Does this mean we'll finally see Gwyneth Paltrow's character go the same direction as her comic counterpart, or just that the Mark XLVII has a mind of its own as the first trailer also suggested.
