Tony Stark's Alter Ego, Robert Downey Jr., Finally Joined Twitter
In the end, social media consumes us all. Oh sure, celebrities may fight it but they know they won't win. The latest star to send up the white flag in surrender is none other than Tony Stark.
Oh sure, he might be using his alter ego of Robert Downey Jr. but really, we all know the truth, Marvel. You've been secretly engineering actual superheroes for decades, releasing them into the wild to grow up with human parents, and then 'casting' them as themselves in your films. What other explanation could their be for this kind of blurring between fantasy and reality? Just look at his first tweet.
