Just imagine: Tony Stark Space Tourist. like all the different planets and civilisations, no matter how different from earth, all have tourist culture and he's basically wearing "I <3 ny" tee shirts from other planets. His bunk in the guardian's ship is full of tacky snowglobes and space bobble-heads and just random tourist junk. Also, postcards. So many postcards. (tree anon)
Holy shit. H o l y s h i t though- Tony would just come back to Earth with SO MUCH RANDOM ALIEN TOURIST BULLSHIT MERCH. Hats and gloves and unusual garments that he has no idea how to wear but bought anyway because!!! Ohmygodspace!!! And he is a complete and utter nerd who spent the first week solid of his space journey just yelling and gesturing vaguely at things that Guardians all took for granted.
They humoured him anyway, though. Because they’d honestly never seen someone look quite that excited before in their lives. Not even Rocket could say no to a face that was covered in shiny metallic tattoos and a decorative mask from the planet they’d stopped off for gas at. He was like a kid in a sweetshop, and his eyes just fucking. B U R N T with wonder because science and evolution and civilisations with social structures and new visionary technology!!!! He has reached level 100!! Maximum heaven level unlocked!!!!!
