Years ago, genius inventor/engineer Tony Stark was serving as a soldier when he was injured (by weapons his own company had manufactured) and captured by terrorists. In order to survive, he developed a battle suit with a life-support system and upgraded it with weapons. He escaped with the help of this suit, and began a superhero career as Iron Man. Years later, he wishes to retire as Iron Man and focus on expanding his multinational organization Stark Industries. Unfortunately, the mysterious Zodiac cartel attacks Stark Industries, and Iron Man must return to fight off this organization.Written by

Noted comic book writer Warren Ellis wrote outlines for each episode, which were then turned into scripts and animated by Madhouse Studios. According to Ellis, these outlines were just plot/pacing/colour and he expects there were serious rewrites in places by the studio writers. See more »
Tony Stark branches his company into Japan, he is opposed by the nefarious Zodiac organization. It's up to Stark's Iron Man to defeat the Zodiac, and defend Japan. Iron Man had some pretty good and entertaining moments for sure plus a much more improved animation than earlier and later Japanese anime shows but that doesn't mean it's still good especially since the storyline and the plot are kinda muddled but also the scenes with the suit look quite unatural as well also. But like i said much better than other anime heroes stuff out there sure. (5.5/10)
