Zero idea what this is from, but sort of in love with it anyway.
Robert Downey Jr.
His Last Stand: Iron Man (2008)
Reformed bad boy Downey had pretty much used up all his second chances by the time Jon Favreau took the bold step of tapping him to play Tony Stark in Iron Man — the movie that represented the hopes and dreams of Marvel’s young film division. Failure would not only have exiled Downey from Hollywood for good, it also would have meant more Marvel movies like Fantastic Four and fewer like… well, The Avengers.
Is He Still Standing? Favreau’s gamble paid off big time, as Marvel is now the official King of Comic Book Movies, with Downey serving as its iron-clad prince.
Marvel Avenger: Iron Man
Whedon Avenger: Topher Brink (Dollhouse)
Similarities: Both are brilliant inventors who can go whole days just tinkering in their labs, barely pausing to eat or sleep. They’re also sarcastic, selfish and far too aware of their own brilliance.
Differences: Tony Stark is far more comfortable around the ladies than the socially awkward Topher. And while Topher has created some pretty amazing things, he never built himself a wicked-cool suit of armor.
