I just finished watching [Italic]The Avengers[/Italic], and this character keeps coming up over and over again. Tony Stark embodies this character. It's basically the smartass.
The character knows that he's a comic character so he must do everything can do the [italic]opposite[/italic] of what is expected of him. He even acts playful when he's in the midst of danger. And during times of despair, he acts like nothing's happening.
You get what I'm saying. This character type is getting increasingly boring. Thoughts?
