There are plot twists and conspiracy theories, but this one is a biggie! Is Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, actually adopted and his birth parents were agencies of S.H.I.E.L.D?
Turns out Tony Stark was actually adopted.
Did you hear the one about how Iron Man was actually adopted by the Starks? According to vinereport, this new story arc has Tony Stark placed for adoption by his birth mother, a S.H.I.E.L.D agent, and his birth father, a Hydra double agent. I literally understand almost none of these words, even though I just wrote them and I have read them at least five times. But here’s the big takeaway:
MOVIE MAKERS HAVE A HUGE OPPORTUNITY TO NOT ONLY FEATURE, BUT NORMALIZE, ADOPTION.
