Yeah, especially since the movies did a great job establishing Howard Stark's reputation and character. Before he was just a memory of Tony's childhood, then he became a person in the Captain America movie. Comics these days have made a trend of destroying father figures.
The swordsmanship's first achievement is the unity of man and sword. Once this unity is attained even a blade of grass can be a weapon.
The second achievement is when the sword exists in one's heart. When absent from one's hand one can strike an enemy at paces
even with bare hands.
Swordsmanship's ultimate achievement is the absence of the sword in both hand and heart. The swordsman is at peace with the rest of the world. He vows not to kill.
