Iron Man Becomes Besi Buruk Man



Iron Man 3.
Not a review.
Definitely better than Iron Man 2.
And probably slightly better than Iron Man 1 too,
In terms of execution and substance.
(I'm not saying IM1 wasn't awesome)
(Just that this one feels more... complete)



Robert Downey Jr still rocks!
Really, if he doesn't return as Tony Stark,
Then no one else should have the role!
This post-Avengers Tony Stark is more vulnerable though.
And RDJ gets to... ACT more,
Rather than just stand around in a suit.



EXTREMIS!
Hold that thought,
I need to go back and read if Extremis did THAT.
And THAT. And THAT.
Oh well.
Still, excellent story to draw from.
Can't go wrong with Warren Ellis, really.



THE MANDARIN!
Wait, he's not Chinese?
So why does he call himself the Mandarin?
Because he likes Mandarin oranges a lot?
Or because he speaks Mandarin fluently?
Or maybe he plays the mandari...
Oh wait, that'll be the Mandolin.



Pepper Potts!
Er... hardly any cleavage rating, TBH.
Even though she strips down to her bra.
YEAH.
It's like she spent too much time with Iron Man,
And her boobs got ironed flat too.



Iron Patriot!
Wait, isn't that just War Machine with a paint job?
WARMACHINEROX!
I just can't seem to get used to Don Cheadle
playing someone other than Marty Kahn though. LOL



IRON LEGION!
OMG SO MANY IRON MAN SUITS
Red Snapper lah, Heartbreaker lah,
Underwater suit, space suit, Hulkbuster suit...
I'm surprised he didn't make an Iron Tuxedo suit,
For those formal superhero functions.



What a way to kick off Marvel's Phase 2 though.
And with Thor 2, and Captain America 2,
And GUARDIANS OF THE KRUTACKING GALAXY coming up,
and then AVENGERS 2!
It's a good time to be a Marvel fan!
