When a cocky industrialist's efforts to raise an ancient Chinese temple leads him to be seriously wounded and captured by enemy forces, he must use his ideas for a revolutionary power armor in order to fight back as a superhero.
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

In modernizing the Iron Man's origin story, Tony Stark is not injured in a Vietnamese war zone, but in an act of industrial sabotage plotted by Justin Hammer and the Mandarin. Stark was wounded not by a chunk of shrapnel near his heart, but by slivers near his spine, Stark and Yinsen (whose first name is changed from Ho to Wellington) were held captive by the Mandarin, rather than Wong Chu. However the concept of the Iron Man armor keeping Stark alive was in Season 2 with getting Iron Man injured in his chest after taking a direct hit from a missile while attacking Hammer on his own property. He upgraded his armor in order to attempt to heal his chest. See more »

Only for those who love and adore this character enough to give Iron Man 2 a 10 star rating
Okay I do like material that has been adapted from comic books, and to some extent I watched the cartoon episodes when I was 12. I loved Iron Man at the time, he was my very favourite superhero. The honest opinion is that this cartoon fares even worse than the Spider Man one made around the same time as this.
First of all my biggest complaint - the plot lines make no sense. In one 2 part episode (just remember the writers thought this story was good enough to put into 2 parts) a catastrophic explosion kills innocent people when Iron Man is fighting the Crimson Dynamo. He decides to take a vow - to stop everyone with Iron Man-like technology.
There are quite a few things to go through with that plot - firstly, with the bad guys doesn't that go without saying? They're wielding presumably the most powerful weapons on the planet! Secondly, Some of these people are heroes - by taking away this technology saying "No, this is mine!" to people who are using it for good only makes Stark seem like an unlikeable prick (and he is in these episodes). Thirdly, What stopped him from doing this to the villains before? If he can take them out in about 2 time-slots for the episodes then why didn't he do that? Fourthly, why didn't the Iron Man villains/users of Starks technology team up to fight him? It makes no sense.
Just as a side-note for this review: The opening theme is AWESOME! That is the best thing about this show.
I would only recommend this to the most loyal fans of Iron Man. I think this is okay to show kids (if anyone complains about the plot I described above not being "kid friendly" then I will assure you everybody else thinks he is crazy) but you probably won't like it if you don't really love Iron Man.
