Marvel Anime: Iron Man - Complete Series DVD Review



Synopsis: In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device. When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

Review: Iron Man used to be for nerds only.  He became mainstream with the Robert Downey, Jr. helmed film that came out a few years back and the subsequent sequel.  In fact, the Avengers Assemble movie, which stars Iron Man in the lead, just banked a record 200,000,000 at the box office this past opening weekend!  Marvel is hotter than ever and these new anime series on DVD are well-timed releases.  Iron Man translates well to anime and Stark's persona is well portarayed.  The events in this series could easily fall in line with the film series as a continuation and we're loving every minute of it!

Interest Range: Anime, Marvel Comics
