So I went into the tags. I never go into the tags. (It’s like reaching under the bed blindly and thinking that the fur brushing against you is a kitten but in fact it’s three year old crud that won’t come off even after a decon shower, a sage blessing and a unicorn crying pure tears on you. Is nasty in there). But I went anyway. ‘Cos IW. And I happen upon two, no three, three anti Stark arguments that are a variation on a theme. ‘Tony is evil’, ‘Tony is the cause of all problems in the MCU’. ‘Tony should never have been in the Marvel Universe’.
Huh? Okay, so let’s take Tony Stark out of the MCU. Now what?
Say what?….. Say again?….. Can’t hear you…..
No Downey. No Stark. No MCU. As Feige himself says about RDJ, he is ‘the man who started it all’. But you just removed him so…..The MCU is now a void. A vacuum. A deep, silent, nothingness. Enjoy screaming into that.
And remember, eventually the abyss looks back.
