> Does it? If someone is thought dead...and the DNA they left behind could save lives is it unethical?
MM, I just can't help to notice that you are trying very hard to not use words that would describe Iron Man's actions precisely
So, let me add some precision: Iron Man didn't simply "use Thor's DNA to save lives". He used Thor's DNA to a *clone of him*. A clone that was created not as an indepedent being (like original Thor was), but as *weapon without free will*. Weapon that also turned to be *not completety controllable*. Basically, Stark created mindless berserker without conscience. I ask you: do you really think it's not immoral?
And one more thing: Thor didn't simply "leave DNA behing". We're told that Stark *deliberately* and *without Thor's consent* was *trying to obtain Thor's DNA*. Thor didn't leave his DNA in some test-tube lying around in Avengers Mansion. No, it was Iron Man, who deliberately was searching for Thor's hair etc. With *no intention* of telling Thor about it!
Seriously, wouldn't you feel at least somewhat uneasy, if it turned out that one of your friends is collecting your hair from the sofa and is experimenting on them..?
> Just by being a member of the Avengers Thor probably signed off on something like this. He was a member of the Avengers when they were a govt. funded teal with govt. backing...
You lost me completety here. Is there some fine-printed paragraph in Avengers Charter that says: "All traces of Avengers' DNA will be collected for government cloning experiments"..?
