#23 – Tony Privatized World Peace

From: Iron Man 2 (2010)

Sometimes, idiot politicians and government talking heads need a kick in the butt from someone like Tony Stark. Called to a Senate hearing in Washington DC, Tony is grilled and questioned about his Iron Man technology falling into the wrong hands.

The Senate Committee goes as far as conjuring up lies that other rogue countries are already in advanced development of a similar arsenal. Tony, never taking anything at face-value, hacks the room’s monitors and shows the press and everyone this “advanced development” from actual satellite feeds. They soon see how pathetically primitive each of these rival nations are in their weapons technology.

As Tony humiliates the senators for their exaggerated lies (all because the government themselves want to force Tony into giving his technology to them), he proudly announces to an applauding crowd, “I’ve successfully privatized world peace!” And concludes the session with a smug grin and two peace signs. I just love Tony Stark.
