Tony Stark, testifying before Congress.

Iron Man 2
Shines nowhere as good
As everybody
Was hoping it would.

Was it the writing, direction?
Something was wrong,
But the disappointment
Didn’t last long,

For it was a footnote
In the big MCU,
Somewhat forgotten,
Less adhered to,

But it carried on
The global plot
And it introduced
A government plot

To steal one of Tony’s
Iron Man suits
For use by the US
Pentagon suits.

Pepper Potts, Iron Man’s girlfriend.

The man who stole it
Didn’t go to the slammer.
Instead, he became
The great War Hammer.

He stole Tony’s suit
While Tony was drunk.
He snuck off and took it,
The dirty skunk,

And Tony looked bad,
For he’d testified
Right before Congress
That that stunt couldn’t be tried,

And that his glorious tech
Was so safe from theft
That it was nigh impossible
To make him bereft,

But Tony was wrong
And the world gets mad,
And a new supervillain,
From the bad times he’s had,

Makes himself a suit,
With no financial aiders,
And decks himself out
Like a gladiator.

He carries an electro whip,
Which he used
On Tony Stark’s racecar
As he was breezing through.

The man with the whip
Had a lot of torque,
And he was played by
Mickey Rourke.

Mickey Rourke as a supervillain.

They get in a fight,
Which you can see later,
Or watch some of it in
The movie trailer.

I’m giving this film
Only a four.
It’s okay, but it really
Should have been more.
