Media Consumption Log: Iron Man 1, 2, 3

Probably the best-ever trilogy of superhero movies -- better than anything Batman or Superman franchises generated, and more consistent than then X-Men franchise.  #1 recovered the magic of the comic series while reinventing the narrative.  #2 sustained, even if it did not innovate, and #3 recreated the Mandarin for the 21st century and cemented the idea that continuity in comics can be an innovative way to conceive a movie franchise.
