The 8th Wonder of the World

I don’t need Netflix or HBO when I have entertainment like this:

I have found the 8th Wonder of the World: Tom Snyder’s Twitter account.

Sorry Kong. You’re not the 8th Wonder anymore.

There are so many things wrong with this tweet.

First:

Since Marvel Comics created the character of Iron Man, they can do whatever they want with Iron Man.

That’s one of the benefits of capitalism.

Capitalism: A system that Tom Snyder loves:

Second:

Just because a human being is a woman doesn’t make her less of a man — the word “man” being used to describe a species, not a gender. (For another example of the word “man” being used to describe a species, not a gender, the first words in 2001: A Space Odyssey: “The Dawn of Man.”)

What I am trying to say is: Even though, to me, it would make more sense to call this new superhero “Iron Woman,” since she’s a woman, there’s still nothing really wrong with calling her “Iron Man” since she is a “man” — she’s a member of the race of man: a human being.

Third:

How is a female Iron Man “CommieClaptrap”?

How, at all, is there anything communist about Marvel Comics making a change to a character that they created?

Is she communist because she’s wearing red?

And fourth:

Why does Tom Snyder call her a “super heroine” and not a “super hero”?

On the one hand: She’s a woman, so it does make sense to call her a heroine. From Google: Heroine: A woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

On the other hand: I have only ever heard women with superpowers be called “superheroes.”
