But Probably Not the One Who Supported the Registration Act By Roderick on May 7, 2008 1 Rothbard is Iron Man! So we learn at the end of this piece by Jeff Tucker. Now there’s an image that sticks in the mind …. Anarchy, Humor, Left and Right, Left-Libertarian, Science Fiction, Terror
I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. Not only was it a fairly good adaptation of the character & origin, but I think that libertarians, in particular, will be interested in the moral/political issues that Tony Stark has to deal with.
Have you seen it yet? Since you’re a fan/reader/collector(?), I’m curious to know your take on the film & RDjr’s performance in particular (in addition to your excellent political/philosophical commentary).
Oh, and the movie version of Stark/IM is a cross between old school/current Marvel universe/Ultimate universe. I don’t follow the current version primarily due to the character being written as a bit fascist. Maybe that’s because he has the triangular chestplate/unibeam, rather than the original (& movie) circular one! Or he could just be a Skrull (I hope). 🙂
Don’t forget to check out the (very) brief scene after the ending credits!
