the multi-billionaire’s Space Exploration company to the recent acceptance of Tesla Stock into the S&P 500
or even the glittering night lights alleged to be from the mega constellation of satellites being developed to provide high-speed internet at low cost to the whole world.
What many may not know is how similar Tony Stark, Iron Man’s alter ego and Elon Musk are in business philosophy.
It’s not difficult to find other similar characteristics between them. Tony Stark is good looking;
Elon Musk is as well (Hmm…I’ll leave the ladies to judge that). Both are not just geniuses, but technological ones. However, it seems Elon has a nose for superhero billionaire tactics.
- Solve the most pressing global problems
For Tony Stark, having been a merchant of war, developing and selling hi-tech weapons to the government, the greatest problem that had emerged as a threat to world peace. Using a renewed power source developed from Palladium, he was able to power his heart, Iron man suit, and other mechanized suits to fight villains and bring about peace.
Elon Musk uses technology to develop some of the most amazing electric vehicles, Tesla, to drive the narrative towards sustainability globally (considering climate change is a very huge problem now). He’s also creating loop networks around cities to allow safe, fast, clean, and traffic-free travel.
You might become the next Elon Musk if you can find some of the most pressing problems globally and solve them as Iron man did.
