I’m this charming girl: I guess I pick Iron Man

Sometimes little things come together to build up to one large thing. Sometimes little things build up to little things. But they can all be fun and silly. And that is the mood in which I find myself.

I was listening to some music while I worked out and there came “This Charming Man” by the Smiths. Its a great, very quick song. It starts and before you know it, its over. It seems to me many Smiths songs are that way.

I would go out tonight
But I haven’t got a stitch to wear

I have been humming those lyrics repeatedly and giggling a bit. I just bought about ten dresses. Thus, I should most definitely have more than a stitch to wear.

Anyway, I went and did a few more Buzzfeed quizzes. I admit I am addicted to them. And, these scientific findings noted that I am quite a charmer and seek to make others laugh especially as a form of distraction. That is true enough. But what got me really thinking was my quiz result noting that, out of all the Avengers, I am like Iron Man. The reason for that is that I am supposedly as charming as Tony Stark. There goes that charming term again. If every avenue on social media says that I am, then surely I must be charming.

I started contemplating whether I would rather be a man-made superhero, i.e. Iron Man or Batman versus being a DNA-based superhero. I have this debate with myself (and eventually you all) about once a year. This annual debate may be more of an indicator of how I may need to rethink my hobbies.

Iron Man has always seemed less of a Superhero to me. It’s all metal, design and energy emanating from outside the body. Plus, he is supremely flawed. Maybe that makes him relatable and gives us all hope that we can be grand. Of course, he is a billionaire with access to many resources, including his own genius. Thus, he may not really be an everyday, everyman. Yet, he is still quite charming. And that is quite a great characteristic that is based in part on your innate nature as well as your own cultivated personality.

I got this!

    • Spider Man is poor and Tony Stark, though rich, has a physical flaw. After he was critically wounded by one of his own company’s rocket-propelled grenades. Stark was captured and then saved by a fellow captive who was a doctor and implanted an electromagnet into his chest to keep the shrapnel shards that wounded him from reaching his heart and killing him. Genius that he is, while still in captivity even, Stark and his accomplice/doctor secretly built a small, powerful electric generator called an arc reactor to power Stark’s electromagnet and a prototypical suit of powered armor to aid in their escape. Billionaire industrialist that he is, Iron Man built newer improved models of his external gear and internal arc reactor, the latter of which, if/when removed, can lead to his quick demise. It was just such an act that led to his near downfall in the first Iron Man movie. So, even a rich super hero can have a weak spot that is at least as vulnerable as a poor super hero.

  1. I think Buzzfeed released another quiz recently which gives you a combination of characters… which might be better because I really doubt we can be just one character, when we are much more gradations of different characters. Thought I’d recommend seeing as you enjoy quizzes too!
