As certainly one of 4 credited screenwriters on 2008’s Iron Guy, Mark Fergus had a large section in shaping the Wonder Cinematic Universe’s foundational superhero: Tony Stark, the inventor-billionaire-industrialist-playboy performed via Robert Downey Jr. Consistent with Fergus, the nature used to be impressed via an amalgam of actual other folks — however none such a lot as Elon Musk.

Steve Jobs used to be all the time critical and indignant; he by no means slightly had that present of the bullshit, the operating the gang that Musk has an actual herbal skill for.
