    let me tell you why. two reasons.

    -What'shisface was a TERRIBLE protagonist/superhero. Superheroes are supposed to be charismatic, leading, noble, and humanitarian figures. this guy was a self-righteous know-it-all hot shot. Not the kind of guy I'd look to as a superhero.

    -The plot was incredibly week, the climax was incredibly anti-climatic, and the ending was scattered and stupid.

    I definitely ended up liking the antagonist most of all. Definitely respected him much, much more than Downy, jr.

    but the action was pretty chill.

    Tony Stark- TOTAL ENTJ
    Lt. Col. James- IxFJ
    Scarlett Johansson's character- INTJ
    Gwyneth Paltrow's character- ENFx
    Ivan Vanko- INxP <-- (favorite character award)
    Justin Hammer- ESTJ (dick)
    Samuel L. Jackson's character- BADASS (probably ENTP)
    Yeah, I kind of get what you're saying. I "respected" Vanko more for his intelligence, I guess. He seemed to have a lot more knowledge. It did kind of seem like you could have just stuck anyone in the suit and they'd kick butt. Throw me in there. I'll take out Vanko.

    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    If he wasn't actually shown as being extremely smart what would people type him as? You guys do realize that there have to be maybe a few anomalies to the "anyone who is exceptionally smart is an NT" right?
    Leave those poor oppressed straw men alone, what did they ever do to you?

    I typed the man an ENTP because he is spontaneous, inventive and abstract, not because he's intelligent. I typed Bart Simpson (who is a complete idiot) the same, for the same reason.

    Yeah, he's an ENTP superhero. That's what ENTPs do, we're wisecracking hotshots. it's the (one of many) reason(s) we're awesome.

    I could see Stark as ESTP too. Was actually thinking about that while watching it.

    I was bummed they didn't explain more about that element he created. Why was it better? Is this explained somewhere in the comics?

    What's ESTP about Stark?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I'm with sim on this one I think. I'm kind of wondering if something could explain more why he is a potential ESTP? I'd love to be enlightened.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I'd have to watch both again and pay more attention to his language, among other things. ExTP makes the most sense, with ENTP being the most likely.

    I think Downy Jr. did an outstanding job portraying IM. He's not supposed to be a humanatarian or a superhero. He's just a dude with an awesome armor. If you looked at the first one, before he invented the suit he built weapons. Not exactly a superhero trait there. The only reason he changed his view was because he saw what his weapon was doing to people first hand. Until that point he was fine with the way things were. He was only fixing a problem his company started in the first place.

    Vanko on the other hand did not value innocent life and had his robot run amok in the city where bystanders would had gotten killed. Nothing like satisfying your own vengence without regarding other people. Iron Man is the lesser evil because even though he's more like a rock star than a hero, he valued human life more than Vanko. But, lets be serious here, IM never had the hero mentality. He's not trying to be, nor is he pretending to be one. He's a millionaire/playboy in an armor and he's pretty consistant playing that part.

    Who says superheroes have to be noble do-gooders? Let's face it, Superman and Captain America are boring, for the most part, and Batman is at his best when he's burned out and his ethics (and methods) are questionable.
