  •  Tony Stark is the personification of ego (2+ / 0-)

    He is literally ego unhinged, it is just that his suit allows him to sharpen his ego to a fine point of purpose. Chaotic good would be the best description for the alignment of Stark.

    But we're comparing universes really though, Marvel has some very dramatic differences between DC. Very often almost every character in Marvel has some deep character flaw that is overcome or mitigated because of the powers granted to them.

    DC on the other hand? They have literal Gods amongst their ranks, as does Marvel but in this instance players like Thor for instance still have to kow tow to Odin for instance. It's because of this there is less focus on the personal narrative of moral flaws and more focus on the grand scheme moral questions.

    DC has been mired trying to change that within the last 20 years though, we see this with the reinvention of Batman starting with the Keaton movies.
