John Henry Irons designs weapons for the military. When his project to create weapons that harmlessly neutralize soldiers is sabotaged, he leaves in disgust. When he sees gangs are using his weapons on the street, he uses his brains and his Uncle Joe's junkyard know-how to fight back, becoming a real man of "steel."Written by

In the comic book, Steel was directly inspired by Superman when the Man of Steel saved his life (both literal and metaphorically). After Superman's death at the hands of Doomsday, Irons built a powered suit of armor. Sporting Superman's shield as a homage to Kal-El, he began fighting crime in the slums of Metropolis. The movie doesn't mention Superman, but John's tattoo references the last son of Krypton. See more »
Steel's armor is supposed to be made from steel, which he forged himself. Throughout the film, his armor and helmet flex as if they were made of painted rubber. See more »

O'Neal is John Henry Irons, a military weapons specialist who's just been discharged and returns home to enjoy civilian life with his family until one of his corrupt ex-compatriots (Nelson) uses his military training to deal high-tech weaponry on the streets. In order to thwart him and stop the criminal underworld from acquiring a sophisticated arsenal, Irons becomes an unlikely hero. Believe it or not, this actually had the potential to be successful, but it's done in by dumb dialogue, unconvincing special effects, and an abundance of silly Shaq in-jokes. Might have been a better idea to actually develop the story, rather than spotlighting stupid basketball references. *½
