Adam Frazier, aka FamousMonster, of Geeks of Doom wrote a quick story of what he thinks Iron Man 3 should have been and I have to say it is music to my ears. His writing plays out like a movie in your head especially since we are already familiar with all the characters. He begins by summarizing his bitter distaste towards Iron Man 3 and then shows us what potential it had not only as a sequel to the Iron Man series but a direct aftermath story to the events of Avengers. As someone who could not be more excited for Iron Man 3 and then leaving the theater feeling completely duped, I actually felt the excitement I wanted to feel just reading what Frazier wrote. I wanted to share his story to other Iron Man and Avengers fans too in the hopes that they appreciate it as much as I did. It’s not a complete story and he fast forwards through the details so it is not a long read. He just gives you a gist of a story. It’s just for his piece of mind to show that there was so much potential and for others like myself who don’t have the imagination nor the knowledge of the comic books to piece together a superior story than what Shane Black and Drew Pearce could come up with. Here is a small sample of what Frazier offers but please take the time to stop by Geeks of Doom to check out his original post.

The Ten Rings are lead by a mysterious warlord known as the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) – a master of deception who sits in the shadows and threatens the American people with Al-Qaeda-like taped messages.
