    Stark's entire speech in the above video is incredibly arrogant, but it also makes the audience cheer, because he is allowed to back it up with righteous fury, cunning, and results. Arrogance isn't Stark's problem. It's that most comic writers don't like him, and so immediately follow up him saying something like that with him getting emasculated.


One of the best scenes in any Marvel movie. Loved it.

As for comic book writers, assuming it's true they actually don't like Tony Stark, I have to wonder how they feel about Bruce Wayne, who is also rich, smart, a self-made champion, and (in modern times) smug and impatient.
