Storyline

Tony Stark, head of Stark Enterprises, was seriously wounded and captured in Vietnam while inspecting weapon prototypes in the field. To keep his injured heart alive, he built a revolutionary invention. It was a chest piece worked as an external pacemaker, but with further attachments, it became a mighty suit of power armor that allowed him to fight his way out. When he returned to America, Stark decides to use his armour to battle the forces of evil whenever they are present. And so, against communist spies like the Black Widow and technological masterminds like the Mandarin, Tony Stark secretly fights them posing as his own bodyguard, the Invincible Iron Man.

Trivia

Along with the other four superheroes featured in Grantray Lawrence's Marvel Superheroes series, all the music featured dramatically throughout the episodes were effectively recycled from Trevor Duncan's stock library that had most notably used tracks as the main theme and incidental music in Quatermass and the Pit (1958). The only music specially composed for the series were the main title theme for each individual hero and the (now rarely seen) Marvel Super Heroes main title intro song and the Merry Marvel Marching Society song which played over the end credits.

Quotes

Chorus: Tony Stark makes you feel / he's the cool exec with a heart of steel / As Iron Man, all jets ablaze / he fights and smites with repulsor rays! / Amazing Armor, that's Iron Man / A-blazing Power, that's Iron Man!

ENTERTAINING CARTOON
6 May 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

Whilst the animation for this cartoon is inferior to today's cartoons it made up for it's simplistic animation with top notch stories.

Iron Man was one of my favourite superheroes. Tony Stark was an ordinary man who became near invincible when he put on the suit of armour. Once he donned the iron suit (which wasn't iron at all but actually a super metallic alloy) he could pretty much do anything from flying to picking up heavy objects.

The series was entertaining much like other Marvel cartoons from that period and the stories were very well written.

Check it out if you can. Just ignore the cheezy theme tune (with the exception of the 60's Spider-Man cartoon, 1960's Marvel cartoons had real cheezy theme tunes).
