Heading to the Nicktoon Network in January is the new Iron Man: Armored Adventures series.Â Marvel Animation Age dug around and discovered the official description for the show.
Iron Man: Armored Adventures
Tony Stark is a typical student, in appearance at least. Heâ€™s secretly developing the perfect suit of armour which will replace all current vehicles and will cross all obstacles. Following a helicopter accident in which his father died, Tony is hurt and obliged to wear his special armour to replace some of his vital organs. Tony Stark became Iron Man. As the head of a multinational corporation, he puts on his armour in order to confront those who use technology for evil ends.
Co-directed by StÃ©phane JuffÃ© and Philippe Guyenne
Created by HervÃ© and Olivier PÃ©rouze, Julien Magnat
Co-produced by Method Films, LuxAnimation, Dataquest, Marvel, France 2 and Isle of Man
If it is done right, it could be really good, but too often we’ve seen schlock animated series spring out of successful movies that don’t do justice to the original work or the motion picture.
Iron Man isn’t a universally beloved character like Superman, Batman or Spider-Man, so I’m confused that Marvel chose to go a completely different route than their extremely successful movie and do a cartoon series about Teen Tony. That’s not who audiences fell in love with this summer.
I’ve seen some previews and the animation is REALLY GOOD. Having said that, I have the sinking feeling that they’re going to try to make it kid-friendly and therefore it will degenerate into Cartoon Network worthy GARBAGE
