“Pepper! Throw your shoes at me!”
In honour of ‘Iron Man 3’ being released today, here are a few panels of Curt Conners and Tony Stark interacting with each other in the Ultimate universe!
The Green Goblin blows up and escape from the Triskelion (SHIELD Headquarters) while Conners and Stark are interrogating Gwen Stacy, who’s supposed to be dead after being killed by the Carnage symbiote that Conners accidentally created back in Ultimate Spider-Man #60-64. Somehow, Carnage also absorbed her essence, and she was taken into SHIELD custody to be studied.

CONNERS: Oh man! Oh man!! Did she do that? Did she —
STARK: That wasn’t her! It was on the other side of the complex! Agh!
CONNERS: What happened?
STARK: Something bad.
CONNERS: Aren’t you — I thought you were Iron Man, I thought you were a super hero …
STARK: Yeah, funny thing about that, it only works if I’m actually wearing the armor. (Alarm hasn’t gone off.) The alarm should have - oh man, the girl. Where’s the girl??
I’m still kind of bummed that Tony was happy in the end and don’t whether if I should feel bad about this or not.
We complain about Marvel giving us nothing but pain but I think we all secretly want the pain.
