People, if Tony Stark can figure out how to create a holo-AI version of himself, I promise you he can figure out how to put a hoodie on it. -- Nick Spencer

I wonder if this is Marvel's way of making the Inhumans more sympathetic given their roles in the near genocide of an entire race. Hopefully once the embarrassing-looking show flops they'll stop being shoehorned in at every possible opportunity.

They seem to have flipped the positions of Inhumans and mutants for this event.

Inhumans are the persecuted minority being sent to concentration camps while the mutants are the isolated monarchy, protecting their own citizens and ignoring the suffering outside their boarders

Yeah that's what I was thinking. It feels off when you factor in that Nuhumans (from what I've seen) aren't the pariahs that mutants are.

(Although there does appear to be a token mutant up there, the girl mentioning New Tian).

Not that the Mutants stuck in Hydra territories are treated well though.

Hydra seems to be anti-powers in general.

Little early to say whether or not it will flop, when it hasn't premiered yet.

And it all depends on Perlmutter anyway and he seems to be stubborn about it.

Well anything's possible (X-Men: First Class proved everyone wrong) but it doesn't look good.

That quote doesn't make any sense. Of course Tony can give his AI self a hoodie. You can show anything you want on a hologram. It's not like it's some kind of technological hurdle to a displayed image different clothes.

I think people were complaining because the hoodie looked real and solid and the hologram didn't. But it's rather pedantic.

Well if it's a physical hoodie then Tony Stark has learned how to give his light holograms solid mass (which pretty much makes him a Green Lantern)

And if it's a holographic hoodie that just has a different color, then that just brings up questions as to why AI Tony doesn't make his own self more human colored.

He seems to be wearing the armor physically too. It is quite confusing.

Wearing the full armor makes sense though since AI has controlled auxillary armors in the past.

Hell I can even buy him wearing a single glove if it's like the MK 42 from the third Iron Man movie, where each piece of the armor has self propelled flight from mini repulsors and is controlled by input from Tony's brain/AI

I guess the question I have is why a hologram of Tony would need a hoodie to begin with.

The art makes it look like he's wearing an actual hoodie over his AI body, which is just odd. They should draw the hoodie in the same style they are drawing Tony's face.

well... he's a hard light construct right? so even if he put on a holo hoodie... it would still be glowing blue... not exactly subtle...

But when did Tony Stark develop hard light hologram technology? That's some very advanced tech that afaik he's never used before

If he is a hologram, why does he need a hoodie? He could just make himself look different, surely? Not that I'm objecting to the hoodie per se, I wouldn't even have noticed/cared if my attention hadn't been drawn to it. The objection to it seems spurious and I'd have accepted that Rimmer-Stark can obviously change his clothes, but if we are really going to go down that rabbit hole...

like I said. he's not just a hologram. he's hardlight. so he has substance... but he's still blue and glowy.... that stands out. a hoodie would dampen some of the light.

Well that seems more than reasonable then. Why were people getting in a tizz over it? I didn't realize the blue-y bit was permanent and not just an art choice, I've not really been following this event. If he glows blue all the time then of course he needs a disguise and a hoodie (and maybe a scarf too) would be completely in order.

I am having a hard time believing the x-men would be okay with anyone putting ANYONE into camps. even Inhumans.

a perfect missed opportunity to salvage the mutant inhuman pr propblem

B2B Carwash? Is that a gag on the A1A Carwash from Breaking Bad?
