Deconstructing Comics #698: Tony Stark, Futurist

by Erik Amaya

Iron Man

In the 21st century, Tony Stark (alter ego of Iron Man) has been evolving into an Elon Musk-type “futurist.” What are the reasons for this change?

Emmet calls up self-described “strategy & foresight practitioner” (and comics geek) Matt Finch to discuss these points and more.
