Mini-Bizarre Baseball Culture- Tony Stark: Baseball Fan

In Bizarre Baseball Culture, I take a look at some of the more unusual places where baseball has reared it’s head in pop culture and fiction. This is a smaller installment of that.

In the trade paperback entitled The Five Nightmares (by Matt Fraction), Tony Stark AKA Iron Man has traveled to the Congo to investigate a genocidal supervillain organization that may have replicated his technology.

He also is tracking a few other things. Y’know, R&D meetings, messed up satellites….

… and Josh Beckett throwing a no-hitter.

Iron Man = Baseball Fan.
