This one is just screaming for a re-caption. From Avengers v1 #197.
lol remember when pepper had happy drive her out into the middle of a battle where some complete nutso was absolutely destroying tony with electrified whips to rescue him like she could have just sent happy out there but she didn’t even hesitate she got in the car so she could yell at tony for being a fucking idiot like if pepper potts isn’t ur fave I don’t even know what to do with you
remember this canon medieval au hahhaa oh marvel
#Tony isn’t the all-American good guy kid of superhero #It’s not that he doesn’t know how to be selfless or put the cause above himself #It’s that he doesn’t know how to show that he doesn’t FEEL like the all-American good guy #So he hides behind different masks #One as Iron Man #And one as Tony Stark #genius billionaire playboy philanthropist #who jokes about the most important things #and acts like he has everything under control #because he needs to #because he’s afraid if people look close enough they’ll see how he really feels #how he isn’t ‘good’ enough #and he doesn’t feel like he’s worth it #so when push comes to shove #he’ll take the course of action that will take himself out of the equation #or make people hate him #so everyone else makes it out okay #because he may not be worth it #but if he can save as many people as possible #then THAT is worth it to him
Tony being there for his friends.
There’s been a sort of trend for awhile of people writing strong women as women who are morally right, which is so uninteresting. It’s no fun and frankly it’s a massive disservice to womankind. It boxes us in to making these sort of slightly dull, virtuous choices… We need to be villains too. We need to be messy and sloppy and three-dimensional and complicated, and that’s writing a strong woman. -Rebecca Hall
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light.
The progress of Bruce and Tony’s friendship

"That’s it, Tony! The goatee is coming off!"
"Nooo, Pep! I swear, I won’t do anything else!"
"On top of all the partying you’ve been doing, you had a threesome with two strippers and everyone thinks it was me! My mom left me a horrified voicemail! This is it! Bye bye goatee!”
