Subj: Interesting article about Iron Man

It's an interesting article in some respects, but I have to disagree with this line: "her story took the high-flying, technological super-fantasy of Iron Man and grounded it in real-world issues in ways you never could with Tony Stark."

Mmm no. It could have done that. It should have done that. Her origin story certainly lends itself to that very easily. But nothing was done to keep her grief alive for the remainder of the series, nor did she ever face embodiments of issues topical to her race and gender.
