all marvel movies » Iron Man (2008)"Iron Man. That’s kind of catchy. It’s got a nice ring to it. I mean it’s not technically accurate. The suit’s a gold titanium alloy, but it’s kind of provocative, the imagery anyway."
I’m not the hero type , cleary!!!

Do yourself a favor and watch this vid instantly, because HOLY CRAP, from the first moment I saw a section I was all, OK, so Marvel was just a warm-up? This vid blows me away so hard. I have rarely seen any vid that so effectively does first person POV, that really puts you inside a character’s head like this one does. It’s such a cool experience, whether you’re a fan of Tony or not.
Belief: Old Tony was a playboy who slept around like mad.
Fact: To hide his heart condition, Old Tony kept his distance from other people, physically. He dated a string of women only when particularly depressed. He was usually in a relationship, and hoped to get married and or angst like mad over never being able to marry because heart shit.
Belief: Old Tony was a hard drinker.
Fact: Layton and Michilinie really didn’t understand alcoholism (they thought once their story was over, it would never need to be mentioned again and Tony could resume drinking socially.) While Tony did drink on panel prior to them laying the seeds for that story, it was really rare. His dependence sort of popped up out of no where.
Belief: Old Tony was irresponsible and Pepper was the driving force behind the business.
Fact: Old Tony was actually extremely passionate about his work and most Iron Man stories focused on the goings on of the office for the first 20 years or so. It was a noticeably long time before we so much as saw Tony’s house.
Belief: Old Tony’s scientific ethics were so lacking he’d do human experimentation..?
Fact: Old Tony was an engineer who was not at all versed in any other branch of science. He was in no way the all-around genius we think of him as today. He was a really good engineer and a really good business man and that was basically it.
Belief: Tony traveled back in time to ancient Egypt and Cleopatra had a thing for him.
Fact: okay this one is true.
Belief: Old Tony was super hard core about controlling his assets and IP
Fact: He was actually pretty fast and loose with who could drive an Iron Man suit before Armor Wars.
Belief: Old Tony had a comical love for roller skates.
Fact: This one is also true.
