#im3: where tony is just barely the hero of the story and it’s glorious
I just want to say that I disagree with the tag so much.
The Iron Man movies are about Tony Stark. It’s about a guy who lived his life in this utterly selfish, self serving way, who had this horrible thing happen to him and wake him up to the reality he had a hand in making.
IM1 was Tony realizing that he had a gift that he could use to make the world better.
IM2 is about Tony living up to the legacy that always haunted him - and realizing that what he’d thought that was wasn’t real, and it was time for him to forge his own.
Avengers is about Tony learning sacrifice and not letting his ego take over.
IM3 is about Tony realizing that he is more than just the suit, and that he still has a lot to make up for. The suit was and is great, but he’s just as resourceful and able without it as he is with t (also, it’s about anxiety and that hits a major chord with me).
I enjoy the MCU, but I love Tony even more. He is honestly an inspiration to me.
