I am basically a petty individual who is laughing a lot because
MCU Challenge [5 of 5 Characters | Lt. Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes]
You look damn good, Mr. President. But I’m gonna need that suit back.
Do u know how fucking cool James Rhodes is
He spent months looking for his bff in the desert after he was kidnapped
He saved the president of the united states from psycho practically-invincible super soldiers armed only with a .45 and a green polo shirt
He basically only needs the war machine/iron patriot armor in order to get places faster
His password for super-secret government comm satellites is WARMACHINEROX
If u don’t think Rhodey is the fucking coolest we can’t be friends
But why are there people in the letter’s column saying that the goodness of Rhodey’s book is proof that we should have a US Agent book?
I KNOW IT WAS THE 90S and everyone’s taste was a little suspect
but Rhodey and that douchebag have like nothing in common.
Wow, you can definitely tell that this book was written in the 90s.
there are 6 pages of the Villain showing us how “badass” he is before we even get to a solitary page of Rhodey.

deeply enjoying the classifieds in the marvel year in review things
spider-xan said: I saw that, ‘It must have been Steve who taught Tony how to use a gun because he’s Tony’s military friend!’ crap on TV Tropes, and it made me want to tear apart phone books. Way to act like Rhodey doesn’t exist.
It’s so gross. I mean, acting like Rhodey doesn’t exist isn’t new for Stony shippers, but this is particularly gross, because there is no fucking way to justify “Steve taught Tony how to shoot a gun!!!!!!!!!”
Head canon by my friend that Steve taught Tony how to use a gun. (Cause how did he use it so well in IM3?) - a Stony shipper, summing up why I fucking hate Stony with the power of a newborn supernova
I don’t know. Maybe his BEST FRIEND RHODEY WHO WAS IN THAT FUCKING SCENE WITH HIM TAUGHT HIM. You know, maybe that’s why Tony asked Rhodey what the plan was the minute the gun was in his hand. Or maybe Tony used to design weapons, so that is a thing he should probably fucking know. Or maybe a combination of both. But you know who definitely didn’t teach him? Steve Rogers.
Non-spoilery review of Iron Man 3:
Oh my god, movie Tony is so much more likable than 616 Tony will ever be. I love movie!Tony’s ability to be a decent human being and admit when he is failing the people that depend upon him and loe him and his overall desire to do good things.
The biggest irony of all is that I think that this Tony could be a worthy and awesome friend to Steve (and this is the version that claims to hate him. Whereas the 616 version claims the opposite and is a shit friend. WTF.) tldr: this Tony would never mind rape anyone because they weren’t down with genocide.
BUT THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE TONY DOESN’T NEED STEVE IN THE MOVIE VERSE.
Because Pepper in this movie = badass and full of awesome.
Rhodey in this movie = oh my god the friendship was beautiful. Oh my god, Don Cheadle’s arms were beautiful.
Pepper/Rhodey/Tony and all combinations thereof = perfect ships.
I do have some complaints but I’m still basking in the glow of the movie, so I’ll save them for when the read more actually wants to cooperate with me. In the meantime, YAY.
In short, much better than my favorite superhero’s second movie is going to be and that makes me cry a lot.
