Iron Man: How It Should Have Ended


If you have a mortal enemy, just kill him. Basic Evil Overlord List advice. Granted, there are fewer sequels, but then you don't have to keep dealing with the same problem.

Not at all. You just follow the old horror movie practice of bringing the bad guy back with or without some kind of explanation.

Yeah, Iron Man had it's cool moments, but a coherent use of the armor was not one of them.

Haha, oh Spiderman. You can have coffee with me at the generic corner diner whenever you like.

Given the meaning of "mortal enemy," that's practically a tautology.

Turing word: "henta".

Ah, but a moral enemy is one who wants to kill you, regardless of his/her own mortality.

This is why I prefer realistic fiction, such as science fiction and fantasy.

I'm sure that a mechanical engineer would have written a rather different script. For example, R&D wouldn't be done entirely in Tony Stark's basement.

Please, my idea of the perfect house has Tony Stark's basement. At least on of my engineer friends is well on his way to turning his family room into a small but fully functional machine shop.

Why yes he is still single.
