AGREED! All 'round (with IM/OK/TBG/EG:DR links above). This was just (very nicely drawn) hogwash...
Sentry Fallen Sun #1 2010
Ignoring ALL the other heroes hogwashery, here just the portion with Tony's terrible telling for debate:
Suggested upcoming scene to minimize retcontamination
TONY: Pepper can I tell you a secret?
PEPPER: Are you sure you wouldn't prefer sharing with Agent Hill?
TONY: Who? *smiles* No, seriously, my Civil War memory gap is still a problem. At the gravesite everyone was reminiscing about The Sentry and I remember so little of him.
PEPPER: Did you remember that you outed yourself as Iron Man and go pay respect in your 'Siege Suit'^^^ instead of going as an incognito, shamed Tony Stark. (^^^This conversation occurs before IM25)
TONY: Oh. *grimaces* No. But I covered for all my memory lapses as best as possible. I sold some grade A bunk. Lies, halftruths, all creative condolences on my part. I thought the beer was a nice touch. Everyone loves beer!
I couldn't afford Vielle Bon Secours so I said Bob liked Molson Canadian!
PEPPER: Tony! You did remember that your A.A. standing... If you ever lost control again... The press would be all over Iron Man too
TONY: Yes, mother. *sighs* That reminds me: I should start some schematics on a Grimm-buster Armor. I read some shocking data on a Hulked-Out Thing and found out that Ben may, deep down, be wanting to do what Wolverine does best.
PEPPER: But to prepare to side against a once fellow Avenger? Is that wise?
TONY: Santayana said, 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' Now, I must get back to more bio-file research. I'm scheduled to meet with my old drinking buddy Henry Hellrung whom I apparently assigned as the leader of a team of heroes called The Order.
PEPPER: Who? *smirks*
Okay, maybe these oneliners are more palatable:
I miss my brother.
