Out of the Wormhole: Trauma and the Self in Iron Man 3 | Bright Wall/Dark Room
Maybe you never really leave the wormhole. Maybe trauma is something to learn to live with, side by side, and not to overcome. Iron Man 3, for all its silliness and strangeness and morally questionable underpinnings, offers less a manual on how to do that than a rough and complicated picture of what that might look like. It offers the possibility that the unwise things you did to keep going can be worth the fact that they sustained you long enough to be able to let them go. That losing one self doesn’t mean you will never create another. That even though it might never make sense, there is power in finding a way to tell your own story. That the human element contains both our weaknesses and our best selves.

skygiants | It's called Tenchu and it makes absolutely no sense, but it's so dang cute!
It's like Leverage, if Nate Ford was a sweet elderly woman who just wanted to feed your face, Parker was a very confused time-traveler, and instead of genius con plans, everything always hinged on a ninja or two waiting until the ABSOLUTE MOST DRAMATIC MOMENT to hurl themselves out of hiding and start doing gratuitous flips.

Southwestern Gothic
Regional gothic is not just about what's in that region, and it's not just about general weirdness and spookiness connected to a particular location. It's discursive practice of social critique, usually highlighting historical and ongoing relationships of disappointment, failure, tragedy, and abuse.
