What was the deal with Teen Tony anyway?
I somehow never figured out what happened to the whole teenaged Tony Stark storyline from the 1990s. I have a weird feeling it was explained in an annual somewhere, but I missed it entirely.
It might be the first time I genuinely didn't give a damn about the fate of an important comic character. It's where I realised the Marvel Universe - which I had been roughly able to follow for years - was too big and wide to ever really follow anymore. If I didn't care about Iron Man, I didn't care about anything anymore.
Maybe Teen Tony is just sulking alone in his room, forever and ever.
