Did anyone read/ see the fight between Thor and Iron Man in Thor #3?
I was reading it at the edge of my seat. I have to admit though, I had mixed emotions during the Iron Man beatdown, because he was BEATDOWN by the Mighty Thunder God.
Tony deserves what he got for everything he did during Civil War and now during the Initiative, but part of me, the part that still wants to give him the benefit of the doubt, was slightly sad.
The whole character assassination of Tony Stark is hard to stomach. He did some TERRIBLE things, and maybe some of the things he did MAY have been in character but not everything. And many of the writers are just taking this concept of "Tony the Great Fascist Evil" and running with it, especially JMS. I just feel bad that a once great character was taken down this path that borders villainy, if he hasn't already crossed that territory. But that's my personal opinion.
And now the part of me that wanted him to get his Iron ass kicked by Thor and boy did we get a lot of that, is very much satisfied. I have to say what Thor did, man, you have to bow down to him. He is no doubt the God of Thunder and a force to reckon with. And moreover, you have to respect the fact that he didn't give in at the end. Hell, he admitted to being neutral but he STILL managed to tell Tony off. Unfortunately for Tony though, he looked like a chump at the end of the fight. But nonetheless, what a fight!
All Hail Thor the giver of one of the best fights of the year. Glad to have him back, truly.
