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.


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:


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.


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.”
