Over the past six years, we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark go through all sorts of crap. He’s been captured and imprisoned, fallen in love, made new superpowered friends, struggled with booze, battled aliens, developed PTSD, removed his arc reactor, and through it all become a slightly better person than he was in the first Iron Man.

But some things about the character will never change. He’ll always mouth off the first chance he gets, he’ll always suffer unresolved daddy issues, he’ll always have an outsized ego, and — as a funny GIF set shows — he’ll always inspire people to attack him in a very specific way. See what we’re talking about after he jump.

The GIF set went up on Cheezburger.

Tony Stark

Yup, the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer reveals that one major constant in Tony’s life is a weird tendency to get grabbed by the throat. Or maybe it’s not that weird. The guy is charismatic, but he’s also incredibly exasperating. Getting attacked by enemies is one thing, but even ostensible allies like Thor seem unable to resist. Tony did snark about Thor wearing his mother’s drapes that one time in Avengers, after all.

Avengers: Age of Ultron lands May 1, 2015 with all the Tony Stark throat grabbing you could possibly want.
