I am tired of new attitudes and new color schemes and whatever new bullshit is new to make Iron Man new.
I want Tony’s 80’s attitude back. I want a Tony who cares about and is involved with his business instead of jumping from WORLD CHANGING PROJECT to WORLD CHANGING PROJECT because this stopped making any kind of business or financial sense a long time ago. I want a Tony who is fun and daring. I don’t read comics to be so bored with them I can’t remember who the characters even are from one issue to the next. I want a Tony who has strong relationships with an interesting supporting cast. BY THE WAY, immediately sharing all secrets with a dude you just met is not what I mean by a strong relationship. Any new character jumping out of the woodwork who is defined largely by “being smarter than Tony” is not what I mean by interesting. I want him to be selfish and self-destructive and occasionally hard to agree with. Occasionally. I like it when Tony is knocked down as much as the next Iron Man fan (and I think liking his pain is what we all have in common) but if it is ALL we get, then it comes depressing and dull and unpleasant to read. There needs to be a balance of success and failure, heroism and jesus christ Tony, what is wrong with you???
