Fans are having quite a difficult time getting over the death of Tony Stark in this year’s Avengers: Endgame. The iconic hero played by Robert Downey Jr. made the ultimate sacrifice to defeat Thanos and save the world.
Fans of the iconic character have started a petition on change.org asking Marvel to bring Iron Man back to life. The description written for the petition says that Stark “deserves to live and see his daughter grow up” after all he’s been through. It also argues that the people he left behind “are totally lost” after the superhero’s sad yet epic demise.
Change.org user Méline LOISEAU who started the petition believes that Iron Man’s death was unfair to the iconic character writing:
“MCU’s Tony deserves to come back fully alive. Tony Stark was always ready to risk his life, suffer, and sacrifice himself for anyone, without ever receiving anything in return. Since the beginning, since he was a kid. He can never be happy, and when he finally got what he always wanted, and deserved, his wife, his daughter, his family.. he died. He didn’t deserve this and it’s not fair, after everything he’s been through, and done for everyone, he deserves to live and see his daughter grow up.”
As of this writing, the petition has garnered 29,490 signatures and is about to reach its 35,000 signature goal.
It looks like almost 30,000 Iron Man fans have yet to get over the character’s ultimate sacrifice. However, it’s unlikely that the petition will result in the hero’s return. One of the Russo Brothers of Marvel, Joe Russo has said in an interview with comicbook.com:
“Tony’s dead, you know? That’s it for Robert. He’s done.”
