The entire appeal of superheroes escapes me. I never wanted to fly or leap tall buildings in a single bound. Belch and talk at the same time, sure, at least when I was 11. But I've honestly never given much thought to what the world might be like if I had superpowers. Hence I probably have little interest in watching guys in capes defeat nefarious criminals. In general, guys in capes scare me. I remember Genesis and Yes from the early '70s.
So I thought Iron Man might be a Black Sabbath documentary. It's not. It's a superhero movie. I haven't seen it. But I just found out this fun fact this weekend, when the movie opened to great fanfare and much box office success. I had seen a few cryptic references to an upcoming movie called Iron Man. I had secretly hoped for an Ozzy Osbourne biopic. I am disappointed again.
