Previous Post

Andy was essentially doing the one life for millions trope.

"You can't sacrifice one to save many!" was what it basically was and it always seems like someone in a story has to be that voice.

As to Friday feeling claustrophobic in the armor, surely Friday can do the math and realize that her brief discomfort is a small sacrifice to save many lives.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jocasta calls Tony out on it later.

As to Amanda, I really DO hope they come up with a SENSIBLE and logical way to end this Tony is not the son of Howard Stark junk. Rather then the Deus Ex machina methods of resolving Crossing and Superior.

Tony was backed up on a hard drive that ended up in the Controller's possession as I recall and the drive was not backed up with a copy of Tony for a few weeks....allegedly. What if the controller tampered with it?

What if this whole Tony is adopted junk is a long con perpetrated by the Controller and Arno, who happens to be a time displaced future Arno?

I like your Arno / Controller long con theory. Slott made Arno so sinister a couple of issues ago (allowing a herd of cattle to trample over Wayne, etc), I think a scheme to claim Howard and Maria as his parents might be something that Arno would do. And, that's a scary thought that Tony's hard drive was in the Controller's possession for who knows how long.

One more thing I noticed: When Amanda picks up the family photo in this issue, it's a photo of Tony, Howard, and Maria. It then changes into Arno, Howard, and Maria...BUT, when Howard arrives on the scene, Tony reappears in the family photo. Also, notice that Tony's "home setting", the restricted settings that he programed himself, features Howard and Maria...and not Amanda. Yeah, Tony is aware of the deception, and he's making a big dramatic point here (maybe).

Of coarse, Tony keeps calling Amanda "Mom", but that could just be him "playing along" until he decides to end their con.

At this point, I would even settle for Amanda being a skrull. \:\)
