      I just finished binging Altered Carbon and I once again noted the absolute hatred of the oligarchy present in modern writing. It is clear to me, more than ever, that Iron Man's enemies need to be richer than he is. It shouldn't even be competitive.

    You lose me with comments like that. Tony is one of the richest men in the world. It doesn't matter if people love or hate the super-rich. Tony is super-rich. He just is. The writers need to find a way to make him beloved by the fans regardless. Nor is this difficult. Show him doing terrific things like saving people's lives and there you go: problem solved. Show him saving little babies from a fiery death in a burning hospital building. Show him saving puppies and kittens from being crushed underfoot by Fin Fang Foom. There you go: problem solved.


I agree. He's super rich...we have to accept it. He's not the underdog. He's the...overdog \:\)
