ok but like on a purely meta level, its kinda amazing how so many people irl take tony stark, a fictional characters words, as literally as possible in terms of his characterization, like tony repeatedly states he’s Not A Good Person, he the character, calls himself an asshole, arrogant, selfish, playboy and the people in the marvel universe take his word for it they believe him, they believe his glitz and masks, that he cares only for himself, while we the audience, see how his actions ring dissonant to his claims behind the scenes, how yes, he can be all those flaws but he is also so much more, and yet most of the “i hate this character” are literally regurgitations of all the flaws tony himself have professed while his actions literally speak opposite to his lip service, like i cant think of any other iconic fictional characters who’s literally convinced ppl irl thru fiction to take a watsonian interpretation of said character instead of the doylist approach to such a pervasive level
