Hey did I ever tell you guys how much I hate this plot line in IM2?
it’s so stupid?
because he doesn’t NEED a mini arc reactor to keep the shrapnel out of his chest
any electromagnet would do?
and then he just has to put the arc reactors in the suits behind a shit ton of shielding and
he wouldn’t risk any poisoning at all?
did they forget the fact that he was tethered to a car battery in Iron Man
did he forget?
is he stupid?
how did this become a valid plot line?
why did they focus on OMG TONY BUILDS A NEW ELEMENT when exploring his relationship with his father and himself through Vanko and Justin is more interesting and allows you to actually flesh out those plot lines?
I figured “oh maybe that fucking element becomes UNBEARABLY IMPORTANT in The Avengers or something?”
But no? Not enough to validate spending half the movie on Tony apparently having selective amnesia?
