I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
See, he battles Whiplash and I've read about this: the lightening strikes something in the armor, which becomes sentient - and falls hopelessly in love with Stark. The armor also then proceeds to isolate Tony and force him - via torture - to say that he loves the armor.
All this is going to happen right after he has a massive fight with his girlfriend and his secret identity is leaked - causing her to be even angrier for not telling her. Hoo, boy.
But the abusive boyfriend storyline+mecha falling in love with Tony does it for me. So I'm going to continue although this was only so-so.
