Welcome to Cracked VS, a feature where we pit two topics against each other and let ‘em duke it out. Today’s topic: Iron Man: Comic vs. Movie Version

Nobody, probably not even Marvel, thought Iron Man would become the cinematic juggernaut that he did. And then he made us all cry at the end. Good for Robert Downey, Jr. all around. He resurrected a career that seemed like it was headed for mediocrity at best and ruination at worst to become the centerpiece of a cinematic universe that keeps barreling forward to this day. (We personally don't think he's done - look for helmet videos to show up when his daughter throws on the suit.)

Through over a decade of Marvel Cinematic Universe, we watched Tony Stark change -- he went from an egotistical arms dealer to a slightly less egotistical living weapon. But that’s not the only change he went through -- his movie self has a few differences from the character’s original incarnation on the (sometimes cheaply) printed page. Wanna check out a few of those?
