Many of this billionaire, playboy, philanthropist’s bad guys have graced the movies of the biggest Cinematic Universe. Old Shellhead has fought the likes of Ultron, the Extremis guys, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver - the list goes on. But what about the Disney bad guys that he inspired? That he helped create? Some of them - we’re looking at you bird boy and dome head! - have even gone on to become Spidey baddies.
As Vision memorably states in Captain America: Civil War, fear leads to anger. Anger to hate. Hate to suffering. No, that’s not right. That was Yoda! Of Star Wars fame. We mean this famous film dialogue - strength invites challenge. Challenge incites conflict. And conflict breeds catastrophe.
Let’s be honest - the synth droid based on the brain of Jarvis and the Mind Stone and played by Paul Bettany wasn’t exactly wrong, was he?
What we’re trying to say is that the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist created by Stan Lee and other comics geniuses at the House of Ideas, then played by Robert Downey Junior in movies directed by Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, the Russo Brothers and more … might actually be responsible for the actions of many of these antagonists. Certainly, a lot of their origin stories are inextricably linked.
So, in this video, Screen Rant will be putting forward the case for the prosecution. And the defense, where appropriate. Screen Rant is a fair judge and jury. And only occasionally an executioner.
Love you 3000!
