I, Tom Laurie, and my sister, Leona Laurie, are (re)watching every Marvel movie so we can cheerfully and critically discuss them. In what is indisputably our most punishing episode, we’re talking about Iron Man 2.

In this episode of Marvel Us, we dig into Tony and Pepper‘s relationship, and try to understand the mystifying machines of Ivan Vanko.

Irons in the fire:

  • Guns, rockets, lasers… whips? Why whips?
  • Justin Hammer: He’s like Tony Stark, but you dislike it when he kills people.
  • Just as Tony’s charisma softens his many murders, his chemistry with Pepper makes their distasteful relationship oddly tasty.
  • The Many Faces of Howard Stark.
  • The perils of dating a method actor (and his bird).
  • Who’s the harder man, The Iron Man, or The Man of Steel?
