Iron Man ★★★★

On rewatch I was surprised at just how many themes that are still present in the MCU, particularly that of blowback, were present from the beginning. Stane is still a poorly developed villain (he goes from wanting to become rich and take over the company to a crazy bad guy who destroys LA's freeway for...reasons, I guess?), but much ofvthe film still works and does an excellent job of establishing what the MCU would become.
