    Regarding the curious political comparisons:

    What is meant by the remark about tea party “zealots” protesting Gordon’s pension I can’t even guess.

    Is the intended suggestion that the brilliant businessman Stark would use his honestly-gained wealth and influence to openly oppose crony capitalism and runaway government waste that destroys the economy and undermines businesses large and small? That would be a worthy Iron Man.

    How about Lex Luthor owning much of the media, which don’t report on his funding dozens of organizations engaged in disinformation and vote fraud, destroying major banks for his own vast gain, controlling markets to manipulate national elections, working toward his own evil form of world-conquest? That would be a real super-villain!
