Ok I want to talk about Tony in Guardians of the Galaxy right now.
I LOVE THIS TONY. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
And not just for Sara Pichelli’s Amazing art, although that doesn’t hurt.
What I love is that we’ve been seeing way too much of jaded, Been there, Done that, already built everything Tony. This is a Tony who gets to remember Why he’s a futurist. This tony is getting to fall in love with tech all over again, because he’s seeing things he’s never though of, and getting to figure out how they work. He’s an absolute kid in a candy store, and he’s so in love with all the new tech he even puts up with Rocket treating him like an idiot.
And I’m kinda loving that relationship too. It’s so unlikely. Also the fact that every time tony asks how something works, Rocket just talks about how to operate whatever it is, which is totally not what tony is asking. It’s a great image of the difference between just coming from technological privilege and actually knowing tech. Tony wants to know something along the lines of ”It excites atomic activity in metals where they are not bonded to other metals weakening their bonds and making them receptive to forming new bonds when similarly weakened structures are adjacent to them” and rocket is like “well you push the button and hold it here and shove them together.”
But even completely out of his depth, Tony is still gonna stand up to beings light years a head of him in the only thing he actually respects, because it has to be done. And he’ll gladly take the help of a team, but he’ll do it with or without them, because he’s never going to back down when he’s needed.
This is the “technology and dogged optimism” Kelly Sue talked about in Avengers Assemble, and this is the Futurist amazed at the power of imagination, and this is the Tony Stark I love.
