Harley Keener was the son Tony accidentally found. Tony was in a dark place, but there was a kid in Tennessee in need of a new dad. Over the years, they kept in touch, and Tony became the only father figure Harley had ever known.
Peter Parker was the son Tony never meant to have. The kid was always getting himself into trouble, from burning buildings to recklessly confronting bad guys. But as they grew closer, Peter became Tony’s son as much as Harley had been, and Tony became his role model — the person he looked up to the most.
Tony saved the world, partly for Peter. Because that’s just what he did for his children.
Morgan Stark was the daughter Tony wanted. Even though she was the only one related to Tony by blood, she certainly wasn’t his only child. Tony vowed never to make any mistake by her, and he saved the world for her too. He protected her as fiercely as he could, till the very end.
Even though Tony Stark never had a father of his own, he never hesitated to provide support to every single one of his children. Tony loved them in his own way, and they loved him back 3000.
Per my post about representation, I thought I’d make this gifset to show some love for our wonderful and talented poc actors!
And when I say representation, I mean nice and accurate good and non-stereotypical representation. That’s why these roles and the actors in them are important.
Edit: (Clarification: this is more to highlight these actors and their talent because they have to live in the shadow of Michael Sheen and David Tennant, but they are just as deserving to be recognized. The representation is by no means the best, but it is a start and if we can highlight these faces and voices we are making steps towards true and proper representation. As someone who grew up with horrific depictions of Natives on screen and is working in an industry that often doesn’t support me, I understand that the little victories matter.)
