Storyline

Tony Stark, head of Stark Enterprises, was seriously wounded and captured in Vietnam while inspecting weapon prototypes in the field. To keep his injured heart alive, he built a revolutionary invention. It was a chest piece worked as an external pacemaker, but with further attachments, it became a mighty suit of power armor that allowed him to fight his way out. When he returned to America, Stark decides to use his armour to battle the forces of evil whenever they are present. And so, against communist spies like the Black Widow and technological masterminds like the Mandarin, Tony Stark secretly fights them posing as his own bodyguard, the Invincible Iron Man.

A classic, check it out.
3 August 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The one thing these 1960's Marvel superheroes cartoons have over the latest Marvel cartoons is that they are more true to the comics. They take little creative liberties with the source material and Iron Man has that comic book feel. The animation is sparse but that was likely intentional to emulate the comic book.

Don't listen to the other reviewer that says that Iron Man's theme song is cheesy. He then says that the Spiderman theme song is good. Lets compare the songs, Iron man has the line "Tony Stark makes you feel, he's a cool exec with a heart of steel...". Spiderman has the line "Spiderman, Spiderman does whatever a spider can. Spins a web any size, catches thieves just like flies....". I fail to see how Spiderman's theme song is any better or less corny than Iron Man's. Both were sung by the same people and in similar style, so it makes little sense to say Spiderman's song is great and Iron Man's isn't. Now since that nonsense settled, check out Iron Man it's worth checking out at least once. It did the comic justice.
