There was real menace to Killian's powers and he could have easily killed Stark, which wasn't something I felt in the previous films.
Yea, it actually gave us something different. It gave us something people were clamouring for. And it's pretty much the only Marvel movie where there was actual tension and a sense of danger. All the other films you can't see the hero losing. But like you say, Killian was a credible threat.

People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes
