  1. First of all, great podcast, I actually came across this after listening to EMP. I just wanted to chime in on a couple things (although it's a bit late), because I was just listening to this, and I thought that the reasons that were given to dislike the movie were a bit shallow. I just wanted to bring up the following points:

    1. Tony Stark committing murder - Tony Stark probably killed just as many people (if not more) when he detonated the explosives in the terrorist camp in Iron Man 1, as well as when he first took the armor to the Middle East to save the village that was being sacked by the 10 Rings terrorists. I would bet that he killed 30+ people in that movie without batting an eyelash, considering those were probably his first-ever kills. I think expecting a "hero" to absolutely NOT kill is pretty naive, considering they always go up against lethal, dangerous enemies for whom it would probably be more irresponsible to leave them alive. Also, if you think Tony shouldn't kill, then I guess you don't think he was justified in nuking all those Chitauri at the end of Avengers? What makes killing another race any different?

    2. Aldrich Killian's shallow motivation for becoming a villain - I thought it was perfectly reasonable, especially considering that people have become psychopathic killers in real life with less of a motivation. If you don't believe me, then tell me what the killer's motivations were in the last 20 public shootings. At least in the Columbine incident, the killer's motivations were similar, they perceived social humiliation, and that caused them to snap and plan an act of revenge. I don't think it's far out of the question that Aldrich Killian could become obsessive in the same way, because he's seen the object of his hatred humiliate him on the rooftop, then become one of the first superheroes in existence, THEN become the world's savior in Avengers, and throughout this Killian sees Tony as an utter asshole who is receiving this worldwide acclaim and accolades. I think it would be kind of a similar feeling to when half the country decides to hate on a president, they think the President is an asshole and cannot understand why the other half lauds him so much.

    I just wanted to share, because I was surprised that nobody brought up these points; in fact, I thought that no one brought these up in order to keep a devil's advocate in the debate. Anyway, I'm glad you guys have a great podcast, and I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys are saying about X-Men Battle of the Atom.
