Iron Man: Armored Adventures follows Tony Stark back when he was 16 and heir to the Stark International corporation giant. After a tragic plane crash kills his father and almost took his own life, Tony now uses his invincible armor and technical know-how to save others who could fall prey to corruption and conspiracy. Season 2 Volume 1 picks up where Tony and his friends Rhodey (War Machine) and Pepper Potts must attempt to keep control of Stark International when the designs for the Iron Man armor have been stolen. Tony finds himself teaming up with the Black Panther, helping the Living Laser, and confronting villains like Obadiah Stane and Justin Hammer.
The DVD contains the first six episodes of season two: "The Invincible Iron Man Part 1: Disassembled", "The Invincible Iron Man Part 2: Reborn", "Look Into the LIght", "Ghost In The Machine", "Armor Wars", and "Line Of Fire".
There are some special features included: an Original Artwork Gallery: Justin Hammer, as well as a short featurette on Iron Man's New Armor.
As a family of comic book geeks, we love whenever there are new Marvel products out to watch. Both DH and I are always so-so on CGI, but let's be honest - we're not really the audience they're going for, it's kiddos like mine. We all like that the Iron Man suit itself is pretty close to what you see in the movie, and it's nice to see Iron Man himself as a teen that kids can more easily relate to. If your kids love the Iron Man movies and The Avengers, and they haven't seen this show yet, they will probably love it!
