Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - - - - - - Part 15
After he tinkered with Extremis to cure Pepper, he said he wasn't going to stop there. I think after the final battle he injected himself with an updated version. Calling the armors a cocoon I think was his way of saying that he came out of them different and better. The last words "I am Iron Man" suggest that he's come out of that cocoon but is still Iron Man.
I think Tony is done being just a "man in a can." He's more now.
Well, it's been a shattering disillusionment. Goodnight.
