Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

  • Can Iron Man's armor actually think?

  • Is Tony Stark's intelligence the greatest source of Iron Man's power?

  • Can Iron Man be both a superhero and the corporate property of Stark Industries?

  • Does the Iron Man technology point the way to a brighter future or a darkening horizon?

  • Can Tony Stark be a genuine superhero and a hard-drinking womanizer?

On the surface, Iron Man appears to be a straightforward superhero, another rich guy fighting crime with fancy gadgets. But beneath the shiny armor and flashy technology lies Tony Stark, brilliant inventor and eccentric playboy, struggling to balance his desires, addictions, and relationships with his duties as the Armored Avenger. Iron Man and Philosophy explores the many philosophical issues that emerge from the essential conflicts found in the decades of Iron Man stories in comics and movies. What kind of moral compass does Tony Stark have? Is Iron Man responsible for the death of Captain America after the Marvel Universe Civil War? Should people like Stark run the world? Ultimately, what can Iron Man teach us about the role of technology in society?
