In this series, Tony Stark is the head of a company that is under continual threat from evil forces such as the Mandarin and Justin Hammer. Against this, Stark fights back by leading his own team of heroes as Iron Man wearing armour that not only has the standard features of his regular armour, but can instantly change into his specialized variants for stealth, space, underwater etc. Written by

Rainbow Animation Group was chosen to do the animation for the first season because of their proven ability to provide high-quality heroic-type animation and seamlessly integrate all kinds of visual materials. Starting with the second season, Marvel Productions switched animation houses and the series got a new look, feel, and direction. While Fantastic Four (1994) was revamped with John Buscema in mind, the crew did not have another particular artist in mind for "Iron Man". They went for a more graphic and streamlined approach to the series. They kept a bit of WB's Batman: The Animated Series (1992) in mind, mixed it with a little Anime flair and tossed in a touch of a Frank Miller graphic look. They then simplified it to make the details manageable for animation while still maintaining a "cool factor" and stirred it liberally with our teams' own ideas. See more »

I don't think any current Marvel cartoons can compare to the awesome 1960's cartoons but the Marvel cartoons from the 90's and early 21st century are still entertaining enough.
This Iron Man series was shown in 1994 and Iron Man was joined by other superheroes which meant much more action and excitement. Joining Iron Man were the likes of Hawkeye, War Machine and Spider-Woman. And Iron Man's armour was so cool.
The villains were okay but Iron Man's arch-enemy The Mandarin tended to be over-exposed a bit too much. He didn't look much like The Mandarin from the comic book;he looked more like Ming the Merciless from the 1980's Defenders Of The Earth cartoon.
All in all, there was plenty of action throughout the series run.
