Iron Man and Philosophy podcast

My new friend Chad Wells just posted a podcast of the phone interview we did several weeks back at his site, A Welcome Invasion of Privacy. In it, we discuss the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series, how Iron Man compares the topics of my previous books (Batman and Watchmen), and various issues in the book, movie, and current comic storylines. Chad did a fantastic job--be sure to check it out!

I have a comics-related post at my Psychology Today blog dealing wth Tony Stark's womanizing ways (which are much more prominent in the films than in the comics) and what it says about his character and his decision-making asa superhero. Check it out here, and then check out Iron Man and Philosophy: Facing the Stark Reality for more philosophical discussion inspired by the Armored Avengers.
