I also liked that the characters had a little bit of depth and spoke in a way that normal people might actually talk to each other.

Yet, his condition has not been cured; he must wear his armor chest-plate to stay alive. Iron Man was the most political of all Marvel comic characters. Iron Man was overtly pro-…
