How to get inside Tony Stark’s noggin

Iron-Man-035So people are asking the fanboy what he thinks of Iron Man 3, this past weekend’s big blockbuster.

I loved every minute of it.

The movie’s clever and reverent reinventions of the Marvel Comics mythos are a dream-come-true for an old geek like me.

But here’s what I appreciated most…

The movie ain’t so much about a superhero as it is about a really, really smart guy who can think ahead of bad situations and bad guys.

And then kick butt.

It’s exhilarating to watch somebody — superhero or not, fictional or not — use their noggins to work out problems.

It’s why we enjoy stories about Sherlock Holmes, or even Michael Westen.

These characters are problem-solvers.

And that’s what a successful business is all about.

I don’t care if you’re fixing people’s dishwashers or training them to fix their own dishwashers — if you’re running a business, you’re solving problems.

And if you don’t have your own business in these shaky economic times, I think you’ve got problems of your own to fix.

Go see Iron Man 3, get pumped, then solve a problem or two.

It can mean money in the bank.

“You know, it’s moments like these when I realize how much of a superhero I am.” — Tony Stark
