Superhero Questions

My son loves Ironman. Loves him. He has an Ironman figure that he carries around the house. They are BFFs. One day I overheard Zane asking Ironman if he had to go 'potty'. Ironman apparently answered in the negative.

"But Zane, what does Ironman do when he has to go poop?" I was genuinely curious as to what the answer might be, because they never address this sort of thing. Ironman doesn't ever come running out of the men's room with a piece of toilet paper stuck to his boot when there's an emergency. Neither does Superman, but he's an alien, so he gets a pass.

"Ironman no poop!"

"Does Ironman eat?" I asked.

"Zes(Yes), Ironman eats 'eminems'(M&Ms)." Zane replied.

"If Ironman eats, then he has to poop," I was attempting reason. With a 3 year old. I should have known better.

"Mama! Ironman NO POOP!" Zane was very firm about this. It was nonnegotiable.

Sorry, Ironman.
