Robotman Vs. Iron Man (Part Two)



Continued from yesterday's cover, we see that once again, Tony Stark has been less than forthcoming with one of his allies.  Let's hope that Tony finds some redemption by the end of Captain America: Civil War.  He did not come off well in Avengers: Age of Ultron. acting fairly recklessly despite his great intellect. Stark's attempts to become a better man have been the centerpiece to his character arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe began, and he deserves to finally be able to complete that journey.

Either that, or go Stark-raving mad.

Believe it or not Stark came off very Batman. His whole point has been to make the need for super-heroes obsolete - that was my take away. Yeah it was all ego creating Ultron. But Stark seems to stand on making heroes unnecessary. Hopefully that can be resolved amicably...

An Erik Larsen-drawn Robotman? Damn, Ross, how very brave of you, ha ha. Definitely not that particular artist's rendition of Cliff you usually associate with him right off the bat.

I remember the switch from Steve Lightle to Erik Larsen to be jarring, but I grew to like Larsen's interpretation of Steele.

It was certainly a lot better than that Rog 3000 look he sported all through the Eighties.

About Tony "completing" his journey to becoming a better man: I disagree. That is not a journey that one truly "completes"; it takes place over an entire lifetime, regardless of where you start from. In Tony's case, I'd like to see the cinematic Iron Man go through his comic-book counterpart's bout with alcoholism, only to find his strength in admitting his weakness... and, possibly, in citing Captain America as an inspiration.

(I say that having not yet seen "Age of Ultron" -- I'm currently something like 54th in the queue at the public library.)

I think Tony (as played by Robert Downey, Jr.) already completed the cinematic version of that journey in the origin movie.
