or it's invincible iron man

People talk about Iron Man not having the strongest rogues’ gallery like say, Spider-man and Batman (and there’s also a whole, valid discussion about Yellow Peril in there, fair enough), but I’d argue that it’s because the person he’s usually busy fighting is himself.  

I mean, Tony might get the Shocker trying it on a few times and the odd bank robbery, but if you look at the comics and ask who the main villain is, you’ll often get answers like:

  • “seven hours of paperwork”
  • “unwanted company buyouts”
  • “childhood abuse” 
  • “alcoholism”
  • “heavily-implied PTSD”
  • “the slow sapping of idealism”
  • “taking his friends for granted”
  • “chronic illness”
  • “the U.S. government”
  • “self-destructive and compulsive behaviour”
  • “stages of grief”
  • “the lack of privacy that comes with being a public figure”

Ah yes, and the old favourite, which makes a regular return in all his arcs:

  • “crippling self-loathing”

I mean, it’s kind of amazing some of the comics arcs are as gripping as they are. I just guess it’s catchier to put “IRON MAN VS. DOOM: THE FINAL SHOWDOWN” on a cover than to use titles like “TONY STARK VS. JUGGLING A POLITICAL CAREER AND PERSONAL ETHICS: THE RETURN YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.” Um.

I read the new issue of Invincible Iron, and I absolutely loved the scene between Riri Williams and Sharon Carter about SHIELD. The way you're building up Riri's philosophy with being a hero in relation to her origin is incredibly nuanced and kinda inverse to what Tony Stark was all about when he was in the armor. I can't wait to see what happens to her next!

THANK you.  So many awesome responses to the latest issue. So glad so many of you made it out to the store yesterday. Please support your local stores.

The Tony is immortal story is my headcanon for why Tony is called "The Invincible Iron Man" HE JUST CANT DIE

BITCH IT’S 100% TRUE FACT ? TONY STARK DOES NOT KNOW DEATH REMEMBER THIS WAS THE MAN WHO FACED OPEN HEART SURGERY IN A DIRTY CAVE AND WALKED OUT IN A METAL SUIT OF ARMOR AND A KICKASS NEW ATTITUDE? THIS WAS THE GUY WHO SLAMMED INTO A WALL AND THEN FELL13 FEET TO THE GROUND AND JUST PUT AN ICEPACK ON HIS HEAD TO SORT IT ALL OUT? BLOWN UP IN HIS HOME BY A MISSLE? NAH IT’S CHILL FAM HE’LL JUST HANG ON TO THE FALLING SHRAPNEL AND AVOID MACHINE GUN FIRE UNTIL HE CAN GET TO HIS SUIT. THAT MAN DOES NOT KNOW DEATH. INVINCIBLE IRON MAN INDEED

A compilation post of Tony and Friday sassing each other in Invincible Iron Man #1-2.

And a bonus favourite of mine: the fact that Tony Stark programmed this kind of vocabulary into his AI.

(part 1/??)

  • Iron Man: Guys, I've decided it's time I take things up a notch.
  • Spider-Man: Okay.
  • Iron Man: I haven't been living up to my potential.
  • Spider-Man: Hey we could all stand to work a little harder, sure.
  • Iron Man: With my genius I could find ways to protect the whole world.
  • Spider-Man: That's the spirit.
  • Iron Man: I could transform the whole world, make sure that I have a wider control to protect everyone.
  • Spider-Man: Um... 'kay...
  • Iron Man: Sure there will be people who disagree, but I know what I'm doing.
  • Spider-Man: Uh, this is taking a weird turn.
  • Iron Man: Imagine how much good I could do if I stopped letting the other heroes hold me back.
  • Spider-Man: Oh lord...
  • Iron Man: It's time I stopped being just an Invincible Iron Man-
  • Spider-Man: Don't say it.
  • Iron Man: And time I became, a Superior Iron Man.
  • Spider-Man: I'm out. Lose my number.

ok so FRIDAY says tony specifically programmed her to warn him about possible incoming hostiles by saying “we have company” i absolutely need to know in what sort of nerd action media this line was first used
