It’s hard to look at himself in the mirror sometimes, and those days are the ones his beard is at its scruffiest because he can’t bring himself to shave with a stranger staring back at him. The man who looks back at him is hollow inside, dead and empty, and there’s nothing but arctic cold in his eyes. That’s not the man Edwin Jarvis raised. It’s certainly not the man Ho Yinsen gave his life to save.
But it’s the man that keeps him alive when all he wants to do is crawl into a bottle and drown himself at the bottom. It’s the man that gets things done. It’s the man that survives. It may not be the man he thinks he should be, but it’s the man he is. Sooner or later, he’ll make peace with that.
When someone presents you an offer that seems to good to be true, it usually is. Tony Stark finds that out the hard way. The real question is whether he can keep his mistakes from bringing down everyone else he loves.
