I just read yet another fanfic in which Tony Stark loves Star Wars and insists on showing it to Captain America and Thor as a perfect introduction to modern cinema. I've even written a slimmed down version of this myself in Cat Chaser, where we get this exchange:
"You've seen Star Wars?" asked Sam, imagining Thor and Teal'c watching the movies and comparing notes.
But it just occurred to me that Tony might actually dislike Star Wars because of one key scene, in which Luke deliberately abandons technology and the best computers available - "Trust the Force, Luke."
So, dear readers, a small poll...
Poll #1843451 Tony Stark and the Star Wars saga
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All. Participants: 31
Tony Stark's reaction to the original Star Wars Trilogy
Loves it but hates "Trust the Force, Luke"
Despises it apart from the cute robots.
Despises it unreservedly.
He's more or less indifferent, real engineering is more fun.
He's indifferent, but thought Slave Girl Leia was smoking hot - when he was a kid.
He thinks the Death Star was poorly engineered, could do better.
He modelled Jarvis on an intelligent C-3PO
We are not worthy to envisage Tony Stark's opinions.
Tony Stark's reaction to the prequels
Tried to bribe Lucas to forget the idea.
Had Lucas assassinated to kill the idea (it's not our universe after all)
Liked the idea until he actually saw them
Uses Jar-Jar Binks droids for target practice.
Really doesn't care - he has better things to do.
Pepper Potts and Cats!
I forgot the some other option buttons - please comment instead!
And this (via james_nicoll) is why sloths and meep...
