“The first monument dedicated to Iron Man in the year of his cinematographic death celebrates Tony Stark, the man who used his great wealth to fight for the ideals in which he believed … reminding us that we are the protagonists of our era. That the future of humanity depends on our decisions … that all of us must be heroes!”
