Why I love Tony Stark

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 10, 2012, 9:12 AM

For some reason I felt the reason to make one again.
It's been a while but at least i have something I want to talk about
and that thing in none other the Tony Start, Or Iron man if you please.
I love him
Not only because he's handsome as I don't know what,
but because he's not perfect.
I have seen a lot of heroes who were made to be nothing but perfect, goody two shoes.
Of which I just want to throw something at.
But Tony Stark isn't perfect,
Through his cocky manner and sly comments,
he's broken, scared, and damaged.
He has daddy issues and is self destructive.
This is somethings that most of you already know.
So yeah I maybe just stating the obvious but I don't care and besides that's not the point.
My point is that Tony Stark is not perfect, he has no real super powers, he's full of flaws.
But he is a hero, he has only his inelegance to count on and with it he invented so many things including the iron man.
He's an icon, telling that even if you're not perfect, even if you have a horrid pass, if you work hard enough you can do something amazing.
No you don't have to be a superhero, no you don't even have to be rich, but you can be something.
No you don't have to be the smartest person i the world or even in the class.
Everyone has different talents each that can lead them to actually be something if that want to be, if they stop and think, if that want to be something.
So yes I love Tony Stark.
He's not perfect,
He made bad choices,
and beside what others think he doesn't have everything that he wants even if he has money.
I love him because he shows you don't need to e perfect to be a hero,
and that even if you make mistakes, you can still make something of yourself.
Tony Stark is my hero,
he inspires me,
and he gives me something to write about.

You do't have to agree with me, but hey let me hear what you think, i want to know who your favorite superhero is and if you have a reason tell me why.

This is great. I agree completely.
Tony/Iron Man is my favorite too, mainly because nobody else made him a hero. He did everything on his own. He figured out own to make the iron man suit, he built his chest plate/arc reactor (depending on whether you're talking about the comics or the movies) and he just started going out there to right his own wrongs. He's great.

Clint probably takes second with me. ^^'

I totally agree with you, and that's why I love Tony too :) Though I love him, I have to say my favorite character is Clint Barton. Actually, I love Clint for a lot of the reasons I like Tony: he has a difficult past, and has his scars, but he made the decision to overcome them and he tries his hardest to do the best he can at every turn. Clint doesn't have superpowers either, and doesn't even have unlimited resources like Tony, but he is still a hero and keeps up with the best SUPERheros and armored geniuses (;)) the world has to offer without a single complaint. Add the fact that he has a lovely dry wit and loves animals to death, and Clint is hands down my most favorite comic book hero ever! :heart:

You had forgotten to add the fact that Tony is seeking redemption for being a weapons maker who didn't care how his inventions could harm other people.

You know, in many ways, Tony is like Bruce Wayne: both are self-made heroes with a lot of angst and parental issues, which is not surprising why both are popular as superheroes. And even is you're not going to be a superhero, being self-made can be an inspiration.

No I didn't forget about it but i am glad that you brought it up.
It's a big part of his character because in a way it seems as he fights in a way that says that he has something to prove.

But yeah they are alike in some ways,though it's the ways their different that let me chose between them as favorites. They act in different ways and think in different ways but they are both self made heroes which, and I agree with you, is an inspiration in it's self. But Tony reminds me more of myself then Bruce dose which maybe why i chose him over the other, though that fact doesn't make either less inspirational, if that makes any sense. I understand if it doesn't, I mean i am babbling a bit.

Naw, it's okay. True story, it wasn't until the live-action movie of "Iron Man" that I became a fan of character, and I credit that to Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of the character.
