What, you mean the Sleeper Sofa? That’s not so bad. Will you be joining me?
Uh, okay, I actually had to sleep on this one before I could get the answer straight.
I’m assuming that what you mean is what made me want to continue Stark industries after I safely returned to America with shrapnel in my heart? I’ll just roll with that assumption, if you don’t mind.
Let’s see, first of all, shutting down Stark Industries is just about as close to impossible as you can get. I mean unless we go bankrupt, but I think the fact that we haven’t, even after having shut down our weapons manufacturing branch, goes a long way in showing how possible that is…right. My point is, my father built this company from the ground up, and I’ll be damned if I ever see it fall.
I’ll also be damned if I ever see it fall into the wrong hands. When I was being held captive in Afghanistan, I saw that all my life’s work had been put to use destroying and killing. I watched young men and women die. And I realized that I was creating a legacy for my father that was filled with death and pain. Not to mention, contributing to a system that held no one and nothing responsible for that pain.
What I’m trying to say is that not continuing Stark Industries would have been the most irresponsible thing I could possibly have done. What I’ve got going on now? Well, it’s ten steps in the right direction, if you ask me. Clean energy and defense systems over weapons, any day.
Wait, what? I’m not understanding why this gets me in trouble but setting Dr. Banner’s alarm to go off at 5:34 AM is “funny” and “cute”…
Why do you ask? Are you interested? I’m a lot better at sharing than I seem to be, I promise. :)
This is actually a really great question, and a difficult one, at that.
Let’s see, favorite inanimate object…I probably have a lot. Any kind of power tool is a beautiful kind of power tool. Especially the monkey wrench. Try it some time, you’ll love it, Mr. Tumblrbot.
Do holograms count as objects? Or inanimate for that matter?
Oh, and helping Pepper slip out of her clothes puts those clothes on this list, too.
What Natasha and vodka do in their spare time is not my business. See? I’m learning about personal boundaries, just like you said I should be.
Is Natasha spreading nasty rumors about me again? Because none of those pictures were photoshopped. None.
I don’t need to. I just have to put you and a bottle of Russo-Baltique in the same room and wait an hour and that problem will be solved.
Hey, my keyboard interface isn’t loud at all! There aren’t even any physical keys. So I am keeping quiet. Moderately. If SHIELD has a problem, they can come to me. It doesn’t work the other way around.
I’m still working on that, you know. Minus the vodka, that’s completely untenable. Why haven’t you come down to my lab yet? I sent you a text five minutes ago, I was hoping you’d get here to look over my research. Hurry up.
Why thank you, that’s what I think, too.
