Awesome project! I think I wouldn't be able to get past step 1: tear Iron Man limb from limb. I'm not The Hulk.

It's really hard to see the color in daylight - our forge is pretty dim so we can see it pretty well. But even then, I don't usually trust my eyes for the quench. To make sure it's ready, you can get a magnet and hold the blade near it. If it's not attracted to the magnet, you've reached the right temperature. Just be careful - if any part of you gets between the blade and magnet, you can get a red hot knife stuck to your finger!
Just so you know, quenching and tempering have little to no effect on mild steel. You will still see the color appear from the tempering process, but there isn't enough carbon present for the metal to harden properly. As for the material you've been using, in my experience, anything that cuts is usually at least medium steel - so you're good there. Lawn mower blades are highly prized junk steel! If you want to go all out (affordably) get some leaf spring from a junkyard. Most of the swords I've made started as leaf or coil spring. It's good stuff. Thanks for the instructable!
