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.

So when you find yourself locked onto an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your past where the screaming is unbearable, remember there is always madness. Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away forever.
