EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man:Armored Adventures: “Ancient History 101” (Episode 9)

Iron man’s unexpected winning streak continues with what is unquestionably my favorite episode of the series so far. I initially decided to start reviewing this series on a lark, since Marvel is woefully underrepresented on our site (Owing mostly to the fact that I don’t really like it, and the guys on here who do like it don’t wanna’ write about it), but Iron Man is really the only Marvel Hero who works for me (I think mainly because Rocket Red was so woefully under-used in the DC universe).

Sorry it took me a week to get this review up, but life got in the way. The good news, however, is that it was worth the wait and that with “Meltdown” two weeks ago, this one, and tonight’s new episode, this turkey of a show has finally hit some kind of a stride and is becoming worth watching. It’s not all the way there yet, but they seem to have finally hit on the idea that they need (A) stories and (B) to make use of their characters.

Pepper's dad - an FBI investigator - gets jumped by someone and ends up in the hospital while Tony and Rhody are borderline-ignoring her because she's annoying. They wonder where people like Magic Happy Unicorn Princess from a couple weeks ago are getting their exo-suits from. Once they find out Pepper's dad has been badly injured, they feel bad about it and decide to help her out, but of course she's petulent and mad at them, and uses her dad's computer to track down who was responsible.

Responding to a break-in at Stark Tower, Tony meets someone calling himself “Blizzard.” He used to work for Staind, but was framed for an accident he wasn’t responsible for, and spent several years on the lam, during which he lost his wife, kid, and a lot of magazine subscriptions that he forgot to put in forwarding orders for. Tony and Blizz hit it off, having a lot in common. Blizz intends to steal back all his inventions for Staind, and then take the guy down. Tony signs on to help him.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man Armored Adventures: “Secrets and Lies” (Episode 3)

As we know, origin stories always suck, and last week wasn’t really any exception. In fact, not only were they saddled with an origin story for Iron Man, they were also saddled with having to retcon/reboot war profiteer/womanizer/drunken Tony Stark in to a Peter Parker-esque teen with a heart of gold. To be honest, they didn’t fail nearly as bad as I’d anticipated, even if the whole plot felt artificial and silly.

This week was much better, shorter on the action, longer on the character-based story. Still not great by a long shot, but not terrible, and better than last week.

(Belated) MOVIE REVIEWS: “Iron Man” (2008)

I can’t say as I was psyched about watching this movie before hand. First of all, I’m a DC geek, not a Marvel Geek, though I will admit that Iron Man is one of a very small handful of Marvel characters that are actually kinda’ cool. (Short list: Captain America, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Spiderman when he’s taken his lithium, that’s about all I can think of right now. Oh, and I liked the Hulk when he could talk and was a bouncer at that Vegas casino. Remember that?) I don’t really care for Robert Downey, Jr. even before his drug use got completely out of hand.
