    the constant need to reinvent one's character is a lack of faith in that character as a product.

    you don't see coke changing its forumla every 2 years to fit in with the current buzz of new drinks.

    I'm guessing Stark's not even going to have his traditional goatee.

    Don't think so, but I bet he has anime-spiky hair. :whatever:

    I was thinking that, or that he'll be like Pedro from Napolean Dynamite, the only highschool kid with a mustache.

    Well if we want to get technical, wasn't Stark already at M.I.T. when he was a teenager?

    That is true, Tony graduated HS at 12 and M.I.T. when he was a teen.

    But screw that, that just won't be relatable. Now we're going to get teen Tony, who'll get injured by a highschool science project because I'm sure now they won't have a teen arms dealer in the middle east.

    1. The fans that Marvel already have are a shrinking and dying fan base. It's by appealing exclusively to the existing and shrinking older teen and adult readership over the last 10 years why Marvel (and DC) comic sales have fallen so damn low.

    2. Just because they are making this version of Iron Man a teenager, DOES NOT mean that they will be talking down to the audience. We have no proof that this show will be "dumb-down kiddie crap".

    3. The new SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN cartoon is GREAT. And while the show is aimed at kids, just like the other previous Spidey cartoons (except for the MTV Spider-Man series), it is NOT dumbed down. And remember, in the ORIGINAL comics, Spidey started out as a high school student.

    4. The recent FF cartoon was only a flop in the States, but it was a HUGE hit everywhere else around the world.

    5. I agree with you that making Tony a teenager in this new series is a bad/stupid idea.

    I'm sure he'll have some slicked back hair and a little chin goatee sans moustache. Because it's Nicktoons I can understand why, as most cartoons that are on tv now that aren't for adults star kids and teenagers, not like back in the day when a lot of them were grown-ups that just acted goofy.

    If they did it based on the Ultimate Iron-Man minis, it would be good...but they'll never show a teenage Obadiah Stane setting up Tonys dad for murder...

    I'm suprised they didn't write Tony Stark out all together and put Rhodey in the Golden Avenger armor.


    Just to hit a different "demographic".

    :whatever:

    I can almost see it working. Heck, if they were brave enough to get into the alcoholism at some point, it'd have a whole new level to it.

    When they say deal with teen issues what they mean is Starks gonna be after the head cheerleader but her football player boyfriend who doesn't like stark is gonna come between them. Thats what happens in pretty much every american teen show/movie/cartoon I have ever seen and I have seen a lot.

    They'll change his addiction to something more playful

    Stark- I just can't stop drinking Mr Pibb!

    Stark- Aw man I totally blew off helping Jimmy Rhodes study for that biology exam! and i've got a date with Pepper.

    But they're not gonna do that. We're going to get Peter Parker: Iron Man.
