Iron Man, Elon Musk, & Tesla

A little over a month ago, Iron Man took a trip to China to hang out with Tesla China. Posing in front of a Model S, Iron Man looks like he is ready to save the day as Tesla fans surround him.

A little over a month ago, Iron Man took a trip to China to hang out with Tesla China. Posing in front of a Model S, Iron Man looks like he is ready to save the day as Tesla fans surround him.

From the photos and the video, one can clearly see that it’s a fun-filled event at Tesla China. 

Elon Musk is often linked with Iron Man, as one of the main inspirations for Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of the Marvel character in film. Both are innovators, billionaires, and doing things to help Mother Earth and her inhabitants. Robert Downey Jr. was reportedly instructed, by Iron Man’s producer and a close friend of Musk, Jon Favreau, to shadow Musk around in preparation for the first film.

What many may not realize is that Elon didn’t create Tesla on his own and start out as CEO — he became CEO in 2008 just after the financial crisis. Under his leadership, Tesla went from almost being a failure to becoming the clear leader of the EV revolution.

Not only is Tesla fully electric and driving change through immense pressure on competitors, but Tesla also offered its manufacturing patents to anyone willing to use them in good faith. The goal is for everyone to drive in a health-protecting vehicle that doesn’t harm our planet or her inhabitants.

Under Elon Musk’s leadership, Tesla has grown from a car company into a tech company. It creates batteries and solar home energy systems for homes and grids.

Tesla went into Puerto Rico and saved lives just after Hurricane Maria made landfall. Many people know about how the storm obliterated Puerto Rico, but don’t fully realize the damage due to not being there or having been through such a storm.

I remember the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and even though I lived in north Louisiana at the time, we were flooded by evacuees. Every person I met had a horror story. One of my closest friends was serving in the National Guard and was helping with search and rescue. Her stories were those of nightmares.  

If we had the tech of Tesla powering up many areas that were inundated by Katrina, many lives might have been saved. One can only imagine how Tesla can help rescue efforts in disaster-related events. 

Seeing Tesla advance the way we use energy is inspiring and gives many who have survived such disasters a hope that they haven’t had before. It’s no wonder why people consider Elon Musk the real-life Iron Man. 

Many Tesla owners also consider their cars to be their personal spaceships due to the advanced technology Tesla has. Autopilot, Summon, the fact that you can start your car with your phone, Sentry Mode, and even the fun Fart Mode are unique only to Tesla. 

With Tesla’s advanced technology, many consider their cars to be a spaceship.

Even Elon Musk had the idea of a spaceship when it comes to the Model X. 

“The Model X is like, as a car it’s like,… It’s like a Faberge Egg meets a spaceship.”
    — Elon Musk

With Tesla advancing how we do things — from driving to turning on our lights — the future is definitely brighter. The sooner the world fully embraces what Tesla is trying to do, the better. 

What I mean is that Tesla makes you think of how your choices impact your world. Simply being inside one makes you realize that you are in something that isn’t polluting the air with toxic emissions.
