Because I'm not judging the show, but rather the decision to portray the character as a teenager who battles crime, while simultaneously carrying on the good fight against acne. With all the gadgetry that Iron Man employs, as well as the avenues available to the writers because of Stark's wealth, this show could easily be tailored to target the demographic they seem to be shooting for without enacting such a wholesale departure.

The end product could be quality entertainment, but I don't need to wait until the premiere to know that I'd prefer a more straightforward adaptation.

Do you know how many times we've come close to world war three over a flock of geese on a computer screen? Do you know what triggered the last world war? An argument over how many telegraph poles Germany owed its war debt creditors! Telegraph poles! Ha ha ha ha HA! It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?
