  1. Eh, let him die. It will lead into the “Iron Man: Reborn” event.

    Besides, what has Tony Stark ever done that made history? It’s not like he’s Mechano-Marauder or something.

  2. Thor: “Okay you guys, Tony Stark has erased all of his memory… he’s as dumb as… well… as Loki… So, let’s make ‘im smart again!”

    Captain America: “Now, how are we supposed to do that?”

    Thor: “Well, you just came back from the land of the dea-I mean-‘pseudodeadstuckinthetimestreamthingyshotwithaspecialgun’ right? So, how about we just use your shield…”

    Captain America: “What about my shield!?”

    Thor: “We’ll just hook up some computer doohickey’s to Tony’s chest and see if that eh… what’s the word… reboots him!”

    Captain America: “I think we’re both underqualified for this job.”

    • Thor: But you haven’t heard the best part…that’s when i shoot him with lightning!

      Captain America: Sounds great..but im gonna call up Richards and Pym…you know for a sane opinion.

      Thor: WHat!

      Captain America: Second Opinion!

  3. It would be cool if Captain America supplied a sample of your blood to extract of him the formula of the supersoldier and to apply it in Stark. And Thor would use your asgardian magic for the formula to do effect, transforming Tony in real ‘technorganic’ Iron Man.

  4. Okay, so I’m currently reading “Civil War” (and everything tied into it) for the first time. This could actually provide some “closure” to the split in the “Big Three” established during said mega-event…. Now, whether it’s BELIEVABLE closure… Well, this is comix books. I suppose the three will, at best, decide to “let sleeping dogs lie”. However, since this is ‘the real world’, we’ll probably get something that makes for a great dramatic moment, but really makes no sense. Like, Iron Man says “You were totally right Cap, and I was a total idjit.” Then Thor says “So, forsooth! Whyest do we notteth goeth and partake in libations of beerage!!!” And then everybody laughs, and they rolls da credits. (Okay, so I have Hercules playing the part of Thor, but that was pretty awesome in _his_ title so it should translate nicely here.)

  5. It took Marvel awhile. It may not end pretty, but dollars to doughnuts this “procedure” sucks the relentless asshole out of Stark. At least for now.

  6. Well Thor beat the crap out of Stark about 2 years ago (?) around issue 4-5-6 of his regular monthly series. I guess he’s always prone to relapsing episodes of anger.
