TONY STARK IS NOT AN ASSHOLE. HOW DARE YOU I LOVE STEVE TOO BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BRING TONY DOWN TO DO IT!! SHEESH. YOU JUST DONT GET HIM! Tony worked to get where he’s at, I know Cap did too, but I can give you 1,000 reasons why Tony is the better man. He sees the world the way it really is. But calling him an “asshole” c’mon you clearly do not understand both sides of the story. If you look back at Cap’s origin story you’ll see that they are BOTH similar in so many ways. The difference is that Tony handled it differently than Steve. Time was partly because of that. So the next time you call Tony an asshole do your homework before calling him anything.
But actually he is an asshole.
But that’s the point of his character: he’s a likable asshole with redeeming qualities. And I definitely wouldn’t go so far as saying Steve is the better man, because both of them have their flaws and you kind of can’t have one without the other (two sides of the same coin type of thing).
I don’t see how anyone can say Stark isn’t an asshole.
He mocks and belittles EVERYONE, he is a total jerk, he’s a jerk who has a good heart somewhere beneath that, but he is still a jerk and an asshole.
I hate to use a cap example because of the ‘vs” mentality of the submission but, he calls cap “Capsicle”.
That’s literally mocking the worst thing of Cap’s life, too his face.
Tony Stark IS an asshole!
But then again, this is tumblr where “I killed four people to ruin my brothers day” somehow equals “I’m a total innocent” so maybe here you don’t count as an asshole until you nuke a country.
What I want to know is what does ‘sees the world as it really is’ means.
Sadly, people think being idealistic is the same as being delusional.
If you actually believe everyone has at least some good in them, then you’re seen as a fool.
Despite the fact it’s true barring the occasional sociopath.
I just love the first note, calling out people for calling their baby an asshole.
Movie Tony is an asshole. Comic Tony is an asshole. He is a prick. A sarcastic douchebag and smart arse.
That’s his character. So do your homework next time you defend an asshole and then get upset when someone calls him an asshole.
Tony Stark: The womanizing drunk. Tony Stark, the man who cloned his teammate and close friend without his consent and used it to fight his other teammates and friends. Nah, it’s cool though, people just misunderstand the fact that he’s a billionaire that does whatever the fuck he wants because money is power. Tony Stark is pretty much all those cable tv assholes like Hank Moody or Marty Kaan or even House, except he flies around in a weaponized suits. Don’t get me wrong I like reading/watching his stuff but an asshole is an asshole. But like those tv shows, we love to watch the train wreck life of a grade A prick. Plus you know, explosions and lasers and shit.
But wait, Ant-Man can’t have a movie because he beat his wife! He can’t be a good role model! So let’s keep making movies about a self centered womanizing prick because Robert Downey Jr makes my pants wet!
And once again, this^
Also, reminds me, re-betting that if Ant-Man is cast with an adorable/attractive lead, the general consensus will turn and a movie about him won’t be so bad after all.
Poor Tony, he had everything but fatherly love in his life. Poor poor poor Tony.
But no really now. Growing up as an immigrant without parents and without money during The Great Depression sounds bad, doesn’t it? Sick. Bullied. Working hard although everything. Joining army to save people, without a single wish to kill.
How terrible of Steve. Such an ass.
Go Tony, the oh so flawless character!!!!
Sometimes I wonder if we’re in same goddamn fandom.
