MCU! STARK TRUTHS!

by Ross E Fortune Lombardi 5 months ago in comics

An Iron Man of the MCU Theory...

A RANT IN THE FAN FORUM!

!

MCU!

STARK TRUTHS!

.

No one has worked out that Howard Stark may have used various experimental methods to have greatly increase Toney's natural intelligence to superhuman levels.

.

Tony is unknowingly one of the first Enhanced-Humans!

.

Even Tony himself has not worked that out yet!

.

To me, it seemed a bit super obvious since I saw both the Captain America and Iron Man 2 films!

.

Toney Stark is NOT just a mere Genius.

.

He is an UNNATURAL genius!

.

He is compared to Einstien or Stephen Hawkin what The world strongest Man in our real-world would be to THE HULK!

.

No mere Human could EVER be that smart!

.

It was only a very recent conversation with a fellow fan and friend that made me realise that no one else might have realised this!

.

As I can foresee some fans losing their shit over this theory, I grade each bit of evidence on a quality scale!

.

.

C = Circumstantial only 0.5 point,

.

P = Plausible worth 1 point

.

D= Definitely suspicious 2 points

.

A = Absolutely certain 3 points.

.

.

I reckon a decent case will need at least 6 points in total, although I am going to aim for 10.

.

.

Evidence 1)

.

Howard Stark was one of the major contributors to the Super Soldier Project that created Captain America.

.

He is highly likely to view intellect as worth far more than the super strength and agility design parameters he was given.

.

The counterpoint to evidence 1)

.

He was one of the major allied engineers of his time, who else could they possibly chose instead!

.

I grade this evidence as only a (C)

.

Current total only 0.5 points, pitiful!

.

.

Evidence 2)

.

There was a deep friendship with Nick Fury and Howard Stark,

.

(Mentioned in Iron Man 2 in the dinner!)

.

The counterpoint to evidence 2)

.

Who the hell does not know Nick Fury?

.

I grade this evidence as only a C

.

Current total only 1 point, still pitiful!

.

.

Evidence 3

.

The overnight reading list Tony mentions as he walks into the Hele carrier room to meet all the collected Avengers for the first time.

.

There is at least three intense study weeks worth there,

.

(Out of the books in the list that actually exist in real life, or their obvious real-life contemporaries that had titles slightly changed for copyright reasons.)

.

The counterpoint to Evidence 3.

.

Eidetic memory is a real thing,

.

It seems a little bit of a stretch perhaps, (ish)

.

"Did no one else do the reading?"

.

Tony Stark, Avengers Assemble,

.

I grade this Evidence as

.

P = Adding one point, the total is now 2, sort of only a "Meh!" score

.

.

Evidence 4)

.

Building (admittedly with help) his first arc reactor in a cave out of scrap and jerry-rigging!

.

A counterpoint to evidence 4)

.

Oh, come on! You can not seriously count the origin story! That does not count!

.

I grade this evidence as only "P", so only adding one more point, Total now of 3, still nothing special.

.

"Tony Stark made this in a cave!"

.

"But I am not Toney Stark!"

.

Iron Man 1

.

.

Evidence 5

.

He is at a party out to get laid, he is drunk and at a party mood, and as a mere idle distraction, he doodles on a napkin absentmindedly and in doing so unlocks the entire Iron Man 3 villain plot!

.

This places a solution to someones life's work!

.

This is not a mere new Cookie Recipe!

.

While both Drunk and Horny and not really trying!

.

That has is graded as evidence level D for 2 points!

.

Total so far 5,

.

Err Um! You are kinda getting close your minimum needed of 6 there Ross!

.

.

Evidence 6)

.

Making a mini Haydon collider to create a New Elemental Particle in Iron Man 2

.

Just by using a few pipes and a spirit level he got the magnetic shielding perfectly balanced using a standard spirit level!

.

WTF!

.

That has to be graded and evidence level D for 2 points!

.

Now I have 7 solid points!

.

.

Evidence 7)

.

Howard Stark had worked out the theoretical existence of a particle that could potentially save the world and provide clean energy!

.

" A LIGHT FOR THE WORLD! "

.

But he was limited by his time of historical existence.

.

So he hid the knowledge needed about the existence of the undiscovered element in expo model.

.

BUT

.

How could he definitely be sure that his Son Tony would have the brilliance to decipher the code and unlock the knowledge?

.

(Remember Nick Fury provided the tapes, so he probably knew exactly what was on them, keeping them safe until Toney was ready!)

.

Maybe the idea of experimenting on your own son is totally horrendous Dick move, but Howard was also a sort of Heroic figure that would do what was necessary to save a future world!

.

The cost of your Son vs. The Whole rest of the future of the human race!

.

What would a proper Hero do with such a choice?

.

The counterpoint to Evidence 7

.

I would love to have ended on a slam dunk of nice 3 whole points but I have to admit that certain bits there are shaky.

.

Howard like Tony also had a huge ego,

.

It is almost equally likely that the risk of Tony not becoming a genius like himself might never even occur to him!

.

He could afford the best schools for his son Tony available,

.

That along with his ego might have meant that could have simply fully expected Tony to have a brilliant mind and totally take that fact for granted.

.

I will despite hating myself a little for it, have to only give this evidence value of only D, only 2 points.

.

But that still means a total number of points of 9.

.

.

Conclusion.

.

For me personally, 6 points are enough but I managed 9.

.

However, I still feel there is room for others to doubt and debate my theory because I did not manage to get an all-powerful (to my mind) full 10 points.

.

.

Dam!

.

I was so, Close!

.

.

UPDATE!

.

This article was FIRST written Before 'Avengers: Endgame', During which Toney Stark solves "The Impossible" time travel problem while doing the washing up!

.

So, I feel the evidence is NOW pretty dam conclusive in favour of my theory!

.

.

BONUS STORY!

.

THANOS v’s DARK PHEONIX!

.

My opinion that is almost 100% bound to be totally wrong!

.

THIS IS 100% Bound to be Wrong!

.

But my own gut feeling is that,

.

(Not so much from the MCU but rather from the original Marvel comics,)

.

Is that Thanos with all his pretty clearly categorised crystals and army, and discipline seems to be the epitome of order.

.

While Dark Phoenix springs out of nowhere within the same universe with power equal to ‘Thanos with a full infinity gauntlet’, Full or blind toddler style rage and fury, seems to be the equal and opposite personification of chaos!.

.

It almost seems....

.

(Again I admit THIS IS 100% Bound to be Wrong!)

.

As if when a superpower of “Order” is achieved by Thanos that the universe had to maintain balance by manifesting randomly, an equally powerful force of chaos!

.

So in a way, Thanos has unintentionally made Dark Phoenix happen!

.

.

Kind of reminds me of the legendary Fantastic 4 issue with the battle between Galactus and the In-betweener!

.

(Risking the entire universe in the process!)

.

This is a paraphrase rather than a quote from Galactus as he fights the In-betweener

.

“You say you have no opposite!"

"But that very fact makes me your opposite!

"I am your opposite!”

.

.

I know is wrong for a large number of reasons but I love the idea, anyway!
