These Unsung Investments Will Help You Retire a Hero

A half-century after his creation, Marvel Comics' Iron Man returns to the big screen for the third time in May. Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the Golden Avenger, a follow-up to last year's breakout hit, Marvel's The Avengers, which drew in $1.5 billion for parent Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) .

Comics are culturally relevant again.

And not just at the movies. Privately held comiXology became the third highest-grossing iPad app last year, up from 10th the year prior. This once-niche medium is attracting a larger fan base thanks to edgy titles such as The Walking Dead, which AMC Networks (NASDAQ: AMCX  ) has since transformed into the top-rated cable TV show of all time.

This sort of momentum doesn't come around often. How can investors take advantage? Disney is an obvious tier 1 pick, but there's another stock I like (and own) that's worth considering at current prices. Click the video to get details, and then weigh in using the comments box below.
