    Default Tony Stark: Iron Man Appreciation 2020

    He has been my favorite comic book character since I was 11 years old and I'm 42 now. To me he is the greatest and most interesting character in all of comics. From forming the Avengers to the Illuminati. He has been a very integral part of the MU. He's also a very flawed character. His hubris gets him in trouble, but it also makes him push himself to make the world a better place. He's suffers from addiction, heart problems, depression, anxiety and was even paralyzed, but he keeps getting back up. Always the smartest person in the room(or he always thinks he is!) Has created some of the greatest inventions and has back up plans for back up plans. This is the place to talk about your love for the greatest comic book character ever created(In my certainly unbiased opinion.) Let's discuss the man, the myth, the legend Tony Stark/Iron Man.

Your here because impossible things happen, and when they do, They call on you to deal with them. You see the angles, Tony. You always have. You see the possible solutions to things that shouldn't be happening." CAROL DANVERS

    Is Demon in the Bottle still Tony's most defining story?

    Fortunately/unfortunately I think it is. It really humanized Tony, who, up to that point didn’t have much to make him relatable to other people. Just depends on how you feel about it, but there are quite a few Tony Stark stories that need to be elevated to iconic status. Especially his stories involving him and Doctor Doom, Armor Wars, the War Machine era, Extremis, hell, if written correctly, you could even make a case to mine the Crossing for material.

    I put extremis first.
    I think that's more defining, because it starts with the interview about his actions in the (then) middle-east and how he's trying to move past them, and his minor rationalizations
    It also shows him pushing the boundaries of his technology with the extremis virus
    It also cuts to the crux of his character, using technology for good vs bad like malen.

    It's still somewhat poorly developed in terms of malen and the deal with maya, but on the whole it's a good microcosm or defining story.

    Demon in the bottle didn't really stick with me that much. For his alcoholism story, the stane one was better. For one it was more drawn ou. The actual demoning in the bottle lasted only 2 issues minus the build up. The relationships were better explored like with rhodey and cap.

    I see we already have a thread for Tony in 2020. Can the mods combine this with the other one?

    Thanks.
