Re: Iron Man's Identity
I think Iron Man and Thor having to be secret identities in the comics were some of the worst aspects of their comics, there's just no reason to do so besides going with the usual superhero schtick. Not to mention his whole "bodyguard" thing is kind of dumb and kind of obvious.
What Favreau did was also a briliant move to show that Iron Man was different, and to close the film itself.
