Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Fantastic Four

A Reel Leadership Article

I’ve been excited to see the new Fantastic Four movie for quite some time. When you break down their story, it’s one of leadership, through and through.

Reed Richards and crew have a vision. They execute on the vision. The vision doesn’t go as planned. They have to run with the consequences.

Perfect parallels for leadership, if you ask me.

However, as the movie approached its release date, the reviews were not promising. Rotten Tomatos reviewers rated the movie at 8%. Critics ripped Fantastic Four apart.

The movie didn’t seem to hold much promise of entertaining. But I went anyways.

I wanted to see what leadership lessons I could find in the Fantastic Four. So, here they are…

Top Posts And Commenters For July 2015

Was it only me or did July fly by? Between the fourth of July holiday, birthdays for my wife and my dad, and the daily grind, July seemed over in a blink.

That’s the way the world works, though. If we’re not careful, we can let our time fly by, never able to reclaim it.

Even though time flew by, I can’t complain about it. Pam and I got in a vacation, I was able to spend lots of time with family, and we were able to enjoy a great variety of music.

Make time for your priorities. It’s worth it.

July 2015

With that, we’re now running headlong into August. Summer is cooling down and Christmas is just around the corner.

The beginning of August also means it’s time for a bit of introspection. It’s time to review the month of July and see where things on the blog ended.

10 Leadership Quotes From Captain America: The Winter Soldier

One of my favorite comic book characters, next to Wolverine, has to be Captain America. His story is amazing.

Steve Rogers started off as a scrawny boy who couldn’t cut it in the army, even though he wanted to serve his country. He was recruited for the super-soldier program and became a flying success.

Isn’t this much like our leadership journeys? We’re told we’re not cut out for it, we look for another way, and we become leaders others look up to?

My wife and I decided to make this movie a mini-date night as we both enjoy comic book movies. We were both impressed by the storyline of the movie and the action. It was a great flick and one I’d recommend.

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

It’s been 33 years since Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers the cartoon premiered. The cartoon series brought joy to millions of children worldwide as it aired. Sadly, the cartoon was canceled 30 years ago.

Now, 30 years later, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers returns on Disney Plus. Chip (John Mulaney) and Dale (Andy Samberg) return in a mix of traditional animation, CGI, and live-action. They’re joined by characters such as Ellie (KiKi Layne), Sweet Pete (Will Arnett), Monterey Jack (Eric Bana), Zipper (Dennis Haysbert), Ugly Sonic (Tim Robinson), Captain Putty (J.K. Simmons), and others.

The new Disney Plus exclusive movie brings back all the feels of the original Rescue Rangers TV series along with a contemporary twist. It’s great seeing characters that haven’t been used well in the recent past brought back to life.

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Doctor Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. The movie is one many moviegoers have long waited for. Myself included.

The first Doctor Strange movie was a fun, trippy movie into the world of mystic arts. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is an attempt to bring a touch of horror to the Marvel universe.

The new movie isn’t bad. However, the movie struggles to find itself. Directed by the amazing Sam Raimi (the original Sony Spider-Man movie director and the creator of Army Of Darkness) just couldn’t seem to find the right mix. Despite this, I still highly recommend the movie.

You’ll get more than your fair dose of entertainment, horror, and comic book goodness. If you see Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, you will also find many leadership lessons.
