Before Wolverine captured the hearts of insecure adolescent boys with his near-total invulnerability and barely supressed berserker rage, there was Iron Man.

It’s pretty easy to understand Iron Man’s appeal to any proto-geek of the ’70s: he’s a brilliant inventor who builds a suit of armor that makes him impervious to virtually any FOOOM or SHRAAAAKOOOM the bad guys dish out, but the price for removing his remarkable armor is the failure of his heart. He’s also an arms contractor, which is problematic, but we’ll let that go because he has a drinking problem, too.

Anyhow, looks like New Line is going to do a movie.
