Re: Let The Hero Lose.
Yeah, I'm all for it.
I think they had a real opportunity to do so with Iron Man 2 too.
If they'd gone down the Demon in a Bottle storyline and actually integrated Whiplash into the story as a real threat, then they could have ended it with Stark's reputation in tatters, his relationship with Pepper destroyed and him now completely dependant on alcohol to get through the day. Then Iron Man 3 could be about him coming back from the brink.
That was never gonna happen with The Avengers on the horizon though.
