>>104980284>anon those are average sized bodies and look fine, wtf are you on about
I'm mostly talking about the basedfication of the personalities. "Goofing off and hedonism" aren't things the Stark I grew up reading was "all for". But hey, why have variety in comic books? Everyone's either a quipster or a grimdark type. We don't need anything else!>why would tony stark be jacked? he essentially pilots a skintight mech with a bunch of tech to keep him comfortable
Because, had you read anything pre-RDJ, you'd know that Stark was jacked. Why? Because he's a rich supergenius with good genes and exercises regularly. He risks his life every day by wearing the suit and going out; a good physical health is necessary.
Or, maybe because he's a superhero and superheroes are meant to be jacked Greek Gods, to act as ideals. If you want to go the "hurdur he pilots a suit" angle, then realistically he doesn't even need to pilot the suit; he can do everything remotely and be a fat slob.
