Apple became the center of another controversy today when famed superhero Iron Man violated international law while using the company's flawed Maps app.  Iron Man, like 35% of the population, recently upgraded his Iron Man suit to iOS 6, which replaced the popular Google Maps application with one developed by Apple. 

According to Tony Stark, the superhero became hungry after defeating the Living Laser and used the app to search for a nearby shawarma stand for a bite to eat.  However, Apple Maps instead led him across the Atlantic Ocean and into Latveria, the soverign nation ruled by supervillain Dr. Doom.  The two allegedly had words and Stark fled the country after confirming that shawarma was not available in the small European nation.

Stark admitted that he had his doubts about the app but felt that Apple would not release such a brazenly flawed program. "I started to get suspicious after the Apple Maps showed an impossibly deep trench in the ocean surrounding England," said Stark. "However, I just figured that Captain Britain or M.I.13 were up to some silly Britishness and kept flying." 

He also thought that Apple Maps was simply flying him to Turkey, where shawarma stands are in great abundance, although he could not understand how someone who didn't have a multi-billion dollar flying robot suit would be able to use the directions.

Apple had no comment and founder Steve Jobs could not be reached for comment.  However Dr. Doom did release this official comment from his throne in Latveria.  "DOOM is furious at Tony Stark's brazen disregard for international laws.  However, Stark has suffered enough punishment by simply using the Apple Maps, a sure sign of his inferiority to DOOM.  DOOM uses only the superior Droid operating system to run his robot suit, for it is far more versatile and able to mesh well with my occult magicks."
