Iron Man 3: The Panic Attack Episode
Little did I know when I sat down in the theatre this weekend that I would be watching one of the best Iron Man movies EVER! Off the HOOK!
Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man takes on "The Mandarin," played by Ben Kingsley, who looks and sounds like Ringo Starr. I am not kidding. RINGO STARR!
You can tell a good script by the flaws of the main character. Tony Stark is such a character and in this movie his major flaw is his unexpected panic attacks. Has any superhero in the history of the universe ever suffered panic attacks? I think not.
Maya asked Tony if he remembered what happened that night in 1999.
TONY: I don't remember what I had for breakfast.
JARVIS: A gluten-free waffle.
So there you have it. A superhero who has panic attacks, is gluten-free and saves the world. Oh, YEAH!
