No, but you don’t understand why I liked Iron Man 3 so much.

In all the other Avengers movies, we see characters going through pain and trauma and heartache.  We see Steve lose practically his whole world and still carry on.  We watch Bruce struggle with trying to figure out just how the Hulk fits into his life and his psyche; it is implied that he deals with depression and tries to end his life.  We hear Clint and Natasha and their angst about the “red in their ledgers”, the things they have done, and we watch as Thor essentially comes of age and deals with the pain of having his brother fall down deeper and deeper.  We KNOW the pain and the issues and the upset are there.

But Iron Man 3 is the first time we actually get to witness—REALLY witness—the aftermath of heroics.

In the first part of the movie we see Tony Stark dealing with real, honest-to-god PTSD.  He has panic attacks, he can’t sleep, he gets reckless and has a harder time taking care of himself, he obsessively spends hours working on suits so he can protect Pepper—even though in doing so he is unintentionally threatening their relationship. Rarely has such a thorough job been done in showing that all the flash-bang-let’s-save-the-world action would, in real life, have some serious psychological consequences.

Then, as the film progresses, we see him laid low.  REALLY low—we see him get taken apart piece by piece.  He loses his home, he loses contact with the people he cares about, he loses his suit—which means, in the context of the past few films, that he is in some ways dead.  “He is Iron Man”, after all, isn’t he?  The public sees him as one with the suit, and in a sense, so does he—a good deal of his self esteem, his sense of being able to defend people, is locked up in what he can do in the suit.  And now he’s stranded in the middle of nowhere—he can’t fly, he can’t fight much, he’s still suffering from PTSD, he’s being actively hunted by the few people who don’t think he’s dead.  All of his real ability is locked up in his brain, a place not everyone would think to look.  We see him almost completely broken down.

And then we watch him build himself back up again, but with one major difference: he does it without the suit.

In most of the second half of the film, in almost all of his major victories, Tony is not in the suit.  He breaks into Killian’s mansion essentially with odds and ends he’s cobbled together.  He saves the passengers from Air Force One with a suit he’s remotely controlling.  He wins the final battle with a whole bunch of suits that he is not in at all.  Rhodes saves the president, and Pepper kills the villain.  Not Tony.  And at the end of the day he blows up all the suits and tosses his mini arc reactor into the ocean.

Iron Man 3 is brilliant and underrated precisely because it lets the hero be a real man—a man, not a man in a suit.  A person who can still work wonders even when he’s at his very lowest, when he’s stranded and battling mental illness.  Someone who can’t operate completely alone, who lets other people have some victories as well—heck, who needs his friends and teammates to win.  And as he says at the end of the movie, while he may not always wear a suit, he will always be Iron Man. 

And personally, I think that is an A-freaking-plus storyline to bring into this franchise.

THANK YOU AND BLESS THIS POST

emphasis mine

I liked this part of IM3. I did not like the villain or his plot, and a lot of the stuff didn’t make sense, but I did love Tony’s character arc. And Pepper’s. And Rhodey.

As with Thor, I loved the characters more than the movie.

American Horror Story: Freak Show | Teaser #20 - Hand in Hand

Scared? You can hold our hands.

The first thing I noticed were the black lines on her neck. We’ve seen that plenty of times in the teasers, although this is the first time there have been more than one. When her head is lifted back, the lines almost look like a circus tent. She also has a protruding Adam’s apple (though that could be something unique to this woman, it may or may not be a hint to Elsa’s gender). There are also black lines on her hands, which we only ever saw on Bobby the tall man. Interesting, as Bobby can be seen behind Elsa in her cast photo. Some relationship between the two of them, perhaps?
Another thing I noticed was that her makeup again resembles the clown in the Open Wide teaser: pale face, dark eyes, and red lips. Maybe the person in that teaser wasn’t meant to be a clown, since we’ve also seen this appearance in the Two Faced teaser. Now that I think of it, a lot of the teasers potentially relating to Twisty and Elsa revolved around body parts: “Hand in Hand”, “Twisted Smile”, “Open Wide”, “Two Faced”, “Head to Toe”, “Back to Back”.

You are, by far, the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my 173 years on this Earth. I get to die knowing I was loved—not just by anyone—by you, Elena Gilbert. It’s the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never gonna get any better than this. I peaked.
