Of course he’s arrogant, he’s TONY STARK

The other day in class my professor showed us the trailer for the first Iron Man movie to make some point about American ideals of superheroes, or something. A lot of it went right over my head, because I started getting excited for Iron Man 3 and the point was pretty much lost on me. I started paying attention, however, when some girl raised her hand and said, “We idealize this arrogant, overly self-confident archetype of a completely unrealistic superhero! I mean he flies around in a suit of armor and has a battery for a heart!” And it was the best thing, another girl didn’t even raise her hand, she just shouted out, “IT’S NOT A BATTERY, IT’S AN ELECTROMAGNET KEEPING THE SHRAPNEL FROM KILLING HIM, AUDREY, GOD!”

I wanted to start a slow clap, but that kind of thing isn’t really all that impressive when nobody else joins in.
