Hi, I'm Caitlin! I'm a student and science enthusiast. Like many of you, I came into being once tumblr was created. Feel free to talk to me, I'm nice :)
this scene is just golden because tony was never planning to reveal his identity as iron man. but right when blondie laughs and says ‘i never said you were a superhero’, she obviously hit a nerve and tony literally goes ‘alright, you wanna play? i can play’, LOOKS HER STRAIGHT FUCK IN THE EYE, AND TELLS THE WHOLE WORLD HE’S IRON MAN. A SUPERHERO.
well played tony
#the real winner here is christine#who is doing a great job at being a journalist#all she had to do was put a small dent in his man-ego and he outted himself as iron man#if it weren’t for her he probably would’ve kept quiet#the only person worthy of applause is christine everheart lmao#and i love how she refuses to stand up#you did a good job#four for you#people think that tony’s the winner here for going all like ‘boom im iron man’ but she made a superhero reveal his own identity#like#please#well played (via clintbarttons)
creeped out by how many people hate everheart tbh. her role in the movies was sleeping w/ tony and pepper literally called her trash for doing so, and this scene where she plays tony perfectly.
I’d say her role is even bigger. Remember that scene at the party? Christine’s not just a persistent journalist goading Tony into outing himself as Iron Man - she’s like the public conscience of the MCU. She’s the one who inspires Tony to fight with illegal arms trade that has been going right under his nose. She makes him face his own ignorance and indifference to the problem he’s indirectly causing.
Christine is one of the main triggers in Iron Man’s origins story. Never forget that.

It really bothered me that Christine wasn’t in IM3. She was too important to suddenly no longer be around.
It unnerves me how many people hate Christine. Tony wouldn’t even have known about Gulmira if not for her.
