Iron Man follows the adventures of Iron Man himself and his friends War Machine, Spider-Woman, Century, Hawkeye and The Scarlet Witch fighting The Mandarin and his evil forces and stopping them from taking over the earth. The first season is kind of silly but it gets more darker with the second season.
It's nice to see another one of Marvel's 90s animated series being released along with the final season of X-Men. I just hope we can someday see the 90s Spider-man get a DVD release along with some of Marvel's other animated shows such as Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. I just don't know why Disney has to be too darn slow on releasing such "most-wanted" titles. Heck, they haven't finished releasing Gargoyles and the Tick. So far the only entire Marvel animated series they have released so far is Fantastic Four, the 67 Spider-Man and the X-Men. Let's hope someday they'll release the 94 Spider-Man, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends and more. Heck, they even need to release other Fox Kids titles such as Eek the Cat.
Here's the episodes in Iron Man:
Episode #1 - And The Sea Shall Give Up It's Dead
Original Airdate 24th September 1994
The Mandarin turns a group of Russian sailors into an army of radioactive zombies in order to use them to take over the world. Only Iron Man and Forceworks can stop him!
Episode #2 - Rejoice! I Am Ultimo!Read more ›
As logic would suggest, the after school shows were a bit darker, grittier and allowed to get away with much more (watch an episode of Batman: The Animated Series if you find yourself in doubt) while the Saturday morning set was generally brighter, milder, and a whole lot more campy. Interestingly, this is where a majority of Marvel's animated shows found themselves and many were represented: X-Men, Spiderman, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and The Hulk to name a few.
I recall enjoying some of the earlier entries mentioned clearly but somehow managed to fall out of the whole scene by the time shows like Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk aired (I suspect it had something to do with jobs, girlfriends, sports cars, that kind of stuff).
Anyway, you'll likely understand my excitement when I discovered that Marvel has finally decided to grace us with an official DVD box set. I ordered without hesitation in anticipation of catching up on what I missed out on all those years before- Hey, better late than never!
The set comes in at a total runtime of 572 minutes and contains all 26 episodes of the show across three discs.
The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 (stereo) and the only language option is English.Read more ›
This is actually, in effect, two series with the same actor, Robert Hays, as the voice of Iron Man. The first season was produced by Rainbow Animation with scripts largely by Ron Friedman. The animation is a sort of lower budget ThunderCats, with recycled action and somewhat limited scope. The stories are a bit overloaded with characters so numerous they weigh down the chance to develop them.
There are also plenty of pop culture references (David Letterman?) and Bill Clinton himself is depicted rather than a generic President (voiced by none other than Jim Cummings, the voice of Tigger, Pooh, Darkwing Duck and many more including Ray, the beloved firefly in The Princess and the Frog). This set of episodes also allows you to see the origins of Iron Man and his arch nemesis, Mandarin and his henchman, MODOK (also Cummings).
Once you hit episode 14, there is a distinct difference in style and a totally different theme song. This season was produced by Koko Animation and written by such comic book veterans as Len Wein. The animation is more elaborate but what is particularly noticeable is the dialogue. While there is a lot of action, an effort seems to have been made to flesh out the personalities, conflicts and, most of all the inner turmoils that are the Marvel trademark.
The cast, by and large, provides outstanding performances of what could potentially be campy.Read more ›

the x-men sereis are better, but this is still good too, i wish it would have lasted longer
It's just not that good. They say around the middle of disk two, where season two begins, it gets better. No, it doesn't get much better at all in my opinion. Read morePublished 7 months ago by MikeFrett

|Is this fullscreen only?||
Yes it is, this was just a Saturday (Sunday where I live) morning cartoon that aired back in 94. Since it was made just for TV and widescreen HDTVs weren't even around back then, it is only 4:3 fullscreen which is the format it was created in.
