Default Re: What DIDN'T you like about Iron Man 3? *SPOILER ALERT*

The movie was disappointing. Not only did they throw out all the interesting points of a classic Marvel villain they substituted a stock character we have seen many times before. To complete their deconstruction of marvel's enduring characters Iron Man III has Stark being freed from his nuclear heart which is the signature feature that binds him to the suit and his identity as Iron Man. The idea of the fatal flaw, the paradox of a strength which comes with a weakness is what makes heros memorable. You might as well have Aunt Mae finally have that ever-impending heart attack and die. By subsequently getting therapy to work through guilt and grief Peter Parker might finally liberate himself from his compulsion to risk his life for the sake of justice. It is like a surgeon finding a way to restore Daredevil's sight.
