In 'The Mandarin's Revenge' when military missiles begin disappearing, Iron Man allows himself to be captures by the Mandarin. He fights the Mandarin and stops missile from exploding. In 'The Moleman Strikes' the Mole Man captures Iron Man and steals an earth digging device. Iron Man frees himself and must face a fire-breathing Dragon. He defeats the monster and tricks the Mole Man into destroying the digging device. In 'The Death of Tony Stark' Happy Hogan and Pepper think that the Mandarin killed Tony Stark, but the Iron Man is alive and facing a series of death traps. The Mandarin tells Iron Man his origin, battles him and Iron Man escapes, returning as Stark to his relieved friends. In 'If I Die, Let It Be With Honor' Iron Man faces death if Happy doesn't bring him a needed component in time. Happy is wounded but saves Iron Man's life. In 'The Crimson Dynamo' when the Crimson Dynamo battles Iron Man and defects, the Black Widow's partner dons the Dynamo armour. The original Dynamo sacrifices his life so that Iron Man can defeat his evil counterpart. In 'Double Disaster' Tony Stark discovers that a trusted employee is stealing from him and fires him. The ex-employee becomes Jack Frost and vows revenge, but Iron Man heats him up before he can do more damage. In 'Enter Hawkeye' Hawkeye decides to become a super hero but falls prey to the Black Widow. Hawkeye and Widow fight Iron Man but flee before Iron Man can stop them.

Tony builds a new suit of armour and comes to Happy's aid. In 'Cliffs Of Doom' The Chameleon and Kraven the Hunter battle Iron Man to get a new laser gun.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1 1/2 discs of great entertainment 27 July 2008
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
The animated Iron Man ran for 2 seasons between 1994 and 1996.
The first disc and a half contain the first season which pits Iron Man and his Forceworks allies Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch (in an outfit you would never get away with using live action), Spider-Woman, Century (who was new to me) and War Machine against The Mandarin and Modok.
Modok here is no longer the evil man-machine that led A.I.M., he is reduced to being the Mandarin's lackey and as comic relief, except for one notable episode with his "new" origin. In almost every episode they are joined by their villainous allies Hypnotia, Whirlwind, Dreadknight, Blizzard, Grey Gargoyle and Blacklash. Occasional support comes from Titanium Man, Ultimo, the dragon Fin Fang Foom and Tony Stark's industrial nemesis Justin Hammer.
The bizarre, and mercifully brief, CGI costume change added nothing, nor did the Hall of Armour and Stark's oversize briefcase. That aside, the first season was OK but never really rose much above that.
Season 2 kicked off with the catchy "I Am Iron Man" theme tune and saw the Forceworks team split up as well the Mandarin seemingly killed after the battle with Fin Fang Foom. After this clearing of the decks the way was clear for some new characters and Iron Man's team becomes Spider-Woman, War Machine (often just as James Rhodes) with guest slots from Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D., the Hulk and Stingray.
New foes Firebrand, A.I.M., Sunturion, Crimson Dynamo, Madame Masque, Titanium Man, Dark Aegis, the Leader and some brief guest slots from a whole series of armoured villains in "Armor Wars" including old Marvel favourites Stilt-Man, Beetle, and The Controller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bland first season, VERY stylish second 24 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
I bought this series only remembering the first season, so I had no idea what the second would be like, and there are major differences between the two; the first being the quality of animation which is drastically different in the second and a huge improvement. Also the cast is stripped when Forceworks disbands to concentrate on the only characters that were really developed in the first season (with the possible exception of Hawkeye). The theme tune and appearance of Tony Stark is changed to give a more rugged and rocky look, and instantly when we meet him we get the impression of a man that NEEDS his armour to survive, not just for taking on the bad guys which is one of the integral parts of the comic book's character. I have to agree with the review that says the second season is the reason for buying this set, and is where 3 of the four stars belong. The DVD quality is fine for both seasons, although I did notice a slight difference in sound synchronisation for one of the first seasons episodes.
After all my praising for the second season, the first season will be fun for the younger viewers and worth a watch (It is the reason I bought the set afterall).
And again I was disappointed with the lack of extras for the set: nothing at all - not even the 'fun granddad' Stan Lee intro that I remember from the videos.

2.0 out of 5 stars Iron Man 10 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
As with all the Gantray-Lawrence produced Marvel Serieses in these releases, the 3 part episodes are cut down, with the recap footage and 2nd and 3rd titles in each episode removed.
Very disappointing. There was no need to upset the fans with this omission.
Also, there were five serieses produced: Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Sub-Mariner and Hulk.
The Hulk series has been curiously omitted from these releases.
Don't spend the money, until the company does the editing job properly

5.0 out of 5 stars Uber Man 4 Oct 2007
By MJabba
Format:DVD
I love these era of toons....and this is a bit of a classic for me. I had the older set but loved the new packaging so had to get it too. The inside slip has the episode synopsis too which is a useful touch. Good stuff! There's also the 90's series coming soon which I liked too, on a 3 disc set I think. Wicked!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Iron Man tales 22 Jun 2008
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Here are all 13 episodes of the 1966 series which featured animated versions of the Tales of Suspense stories, featuring artwork by Don Heck and stories written by the great Stan Lee.
Iron Man's old nemesis The Mandarin appears 4 times but there are other treats here including Moleman, Titanium Man, Crimson Dynamo, Jack Frost, Black Widow and Hawkeye, Count Nefaria, Mad Thinker, Chameleon and Kraven the Hunter with a guest appearance from Captain America.
It features Happy Hogan's first change into The Freak, The origin of the Mandarin, Stark's first run in with Senator Byrd (Boyd here) and the start of the romance between Hogan and Pepper Potts.
Annoyingly the stories are out of sequence so in some tales he has the new armour which is followed by a tale in the old armour. Other than that, oh! and the annoying theme tune, this is a pretty decent collection that will appeal mostly to old Marvel fans like me and may not appeal as much to anyone used to modern computer aided animation.
