I would like to introduce the plot of Iron man: a wealthy American business magnate, playboy, philanthropist, inventor and ingenious scientist, Anthony Edward Stark suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping. When his captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction, he instead creates a mechanized suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. Later, Stark develops his suit, adding weapons and other technological devices he designed through his company, Stark Industries. He uses the suit and successive versions to protect the world as Iron Man.
Although at first concealing his true identity, Stark eventually publicly reveals himself to be Iron Man.
What is the meaning of creating this character? According to Stan Lee, it was a way to explore Cold War themes, particularly the role of American technology and industry in the fight against communism. Later the imaginings of Iron Man have focused on contemporary matters of the time.
Iron Man has been a founding member of the superhero team the Avengers and has been featured in several incarnations of his own various comic book series.
We know Iron Man has been adapted for several animated television shows and films. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark was portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. in the films Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), The Avengers (2012), Iron Man 3 (2013), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019), while Mick Wingert voiced the character in the animated series What If…? (2021).
Iron Man was ranked 12th on IGN’s “Top 100 Comic Book Heroes” in 2011 and third in their list of “The Top 50 Avengers” in 2012.
