If you can tell, I modeled the dominatrix robot after Jocasta, for the comic fans. At first, I was hesitant doing an Iron Man gag because I had just done X-Men about a month ago, and I like to keep things varied. But I saw Iron Man 2 last Thursday at a midnight showing and knew I just had to spoof the first one.
I thought Iron Man 2 was awesome, just as good as the first. My only quibbles, which are fanboy nitpicking, are just of the supporting characters. Black Widow never spoke Russian and never used her trademark “widow’s bite” laser. Ivan Vanko never became the Crimson Dynamo like I thought he was supposed to. And Nick Fury didn’t really act like Nick Fury; he acted like Samuel L. Jackson.
However, I loved the story, I loved the acting, I loved the amped-up action. Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. definitely know how to handle the character of Tony Stark and can do no wrong in my book. Go see the movie if you haven’t. I wish I had more hands, that way I could give it four thumbs up!
