Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave! With a box of scraps!

I actually wasn’t holding out a lot of hope for Iron Man. Up until now, the only Marvel titles that have been successful have been Spider-Man and X-Men, and even those two lost their bearings by the third installments. Daredevil and Fantastic Four were barely passable, and I still remember the painfully bad attempts at Captain America and Doctor Strange . Even Ang Lee couldn’t keep Hulk from being a snoozer.

So, it is with great joy that I feel like I could watch Iron Man over-and-over. Robert Downey, Jr., is perfect as the boozing industrialist, Tony Stark. I’m not going to waste much space talking about it, because there are a bazillion reviews already saying how much fun it is.

Here’s how the conversation went in our family:

MOM: So, what does it kick?
MOM: How much of it?

    Hey, man, don’t you be dissing my 1978 Doctor Strange bro. Given the era and what else there was on TV to appeal to a scifi/fantasy/comics kinda guy, Doctor Strange was, for all its near-abandonment of continuity, sheer geeky-fanboy genius.

    “In the name of Ryall, Scourge of Demons, I command you, begone!”

    And as a bonus, I actually got to see one of the “floating spirit real islands” sitting in the backlot on the Universal Studios Tour a few years later.
