    Marvel Comics' Iron Man appears on display at Madame Tussauds on July 10, 2014 in Hollywood, California. A man allegedly wore an Iron Man mask, not pictured, to conceal his identity during a Pennsylvania bank robbery, according to his attorney.

    A western Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank with a fake bomb police said was made out of phone wires, duct tape and a sex toy.

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Aaron Stein pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges including robbery, aggravated assault and making bomb threats in the June crime.

    An attorney for the 36-year-old Pittsburgh man said he discovered that $9,000 he'd invested to cover his approaching honeymoon was gone.

    Desperation drove him to don an Iron Man mask and take a fake bomb to threaten tellers and rob a bank in Crafton, just west of Pittsburgh, according to the attorney.

    Stein's bond was revoked until his May 31 sentencing.
