The Mandarin didn’t use sweet talk to amass his anti-Iron Man army. He used Extremis technology. If you don’t want to know what that is yet, don’t watch this new Iron Man 3 featurette. It’s pretty awesome though.
I don’t know what the repercussions of this technology are, but I want it. Sure Wolverine is trying to get rid of his regenerative abilities in his next movie, but that doesn’t limit my desire. I’m sick of having to yell YOLO before I do anything extreme. I just want to be able to chug my mountain dew and act recklessly.
