They call Joe Tischer the Iron Man. At age 75, Tischer has competed in more than 100 triathlons - an endeavor he started at age 50. He's finished three Iron Man competitions and two JFK 50-mile races. He's a hall-of-famer at Towson University for track and lacrosse. Not even a shoulder replacement, knee replacement or arm and back surgeries are enough to stop him from competing. "I have a life philosophy and a business philosophy," said Tischer, from the sunroom of his home in Fountain Head, north of Hagerstown, his swollen right ankle perched on an ottoman.

Superhero fans have been waiting for "The Avengers" since "Iron Man" in 2008. Since then, all the films featuring Avengers have included hints and references to the characters' upcoming collaboration. Some say what we've gotten is four years of commercials. I say it's been four years of building anticipation. The problem is that the film now has to deliver on four years' worth of hype. It's an OK blockbuster, but the bar is set so high that it can't help but be disappointing. The film represents a landmark team-up by six heroes of the Marvel Comics universe.

There were no shadowy tunnels, soaring spires or dizzying suspension bridges — the usual backdrops for comic book crime fighters. There was, however, a balloon bounce, a bat cave and a room filled with enough caped crusaders to fill Gotham City. Wack! Bam! Pow! It was Superheroes Day. About 400 people, including 200 children, participated in a family-friendly themed party Saturday afternoon at Hagerstown Community College's Athletic, Recreation and Community Center.

No one wants to wear clothes that seem dated. Not even Spider-Man. As some of you may or may not know, earlier this year, Spider-Man started sporting a very cool, new costume. In "Amazing Spider-Man" No. 30, writer J. Michael Straczynski goes into more detail about its abilities. The new duds are fire retardant, bulletproof to small calibur bullets, have mechanical spider legs coming out the back, and have a unique cloaking device that not only make Spider-Man hard to see but can also look like some of his older costumes.

Amy Metzger, Paul Morgan and Tanya Ziniewicz enter the bowels of the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in search of a painting ... and the iron guy. Iron guy is Iron Man, a polychrome steel and wood sculpture by Martinsburg, W.Va., artist Charles Mortensen and the last of 83 works to be wheeled into the Groh Gallery in anticipation of the 70th Annual Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition. Question is, does the stone base Iron Man has been set upon complete the sculpture, or is it an inconsequential companion of the colorful - and heavy - piece.

"Iron Man" is probably the most lucrative superhero franchise in Hollywood. Nolan's "Batman" series is sadly done, the "Spider-Man" reboot was hardly Marvel-ous, and I'm not convinced that Zack "Sucker Punch" Snyder can sell this generation on Superman in the upcoming "Man of Steel. " The real powerhouse is of course "The Avengers," the unprecedented convergence of superhero franchises that managed to rule the box office in an extremely competitive 2012. But as much as that film emphasized teamwork, there was little doubt that the most popular member of the team, and the one most capable of carrying the first follow-up film, was Iron Man. The new film sees Iron Man aka Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)
