    Quote:

    Tony's power as Iron Man is so versatile and his character would be so rational and effective if they played him straight that he would be almost unusable unless they messed with it.



    Quote:
    I mean, as Iron Man he's practically a Superman-type flying brick, and as Tony Stark he's a super-intelligent, wealthy industrialist playboy.



    Quote:
    That's great, but it wouldn't make for very dramatic story.


Outside of the original alcoholism storyline, I personally didn't find any of the killings or villianizations to be particularly dramatic.

They all seemed crow bar attempts to push an agenda. Marvel had been eating it's own powerful male archetypes for a while now ..Tony/Ironman epitomized that..and therefor he had to be taken down a notch or 2or killed off etc.

So in my opinion its thee lame azz writers. Anyway comics are dead right now ...if they ever come back I hope its done the right way.
