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.
