I know they're trying to make this series the light-hearted antithesis of the TDK franchise, but an action like that makes this series more "cold and distant" than anything from that trilogy that people made similar claims over.

In Spider-Man TAS, Spider-man put all jokes aside to make the Goblin pay for what he supposedly did to Mary Jane, and he's one of the most notorious wise crackers in CB lore.
I do agree I would have liked more of a reaction to Pepper 'dying,' you can be as light-hearted as you want but Pepper was the most important thing in the world to Tony, he should have been pissed off and angry, not making wise-cracks 5 mins later.
