Iron Man: Armored Adventures Season 2 Vol. 1 DVD review
Back in 1996, Marvel Comics brought in a teenage version of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, in an “Avengers” storyline that was largely criticized and later undone and mostly ignored.
You’d think that might have been the last anyone heard of Teen Tony, but when “Iron Man: Armored Adventures” debuted in 2009, the series retrofitted Tony’s origin and supporting cast onto high school age characters, making the series something of an Iron Man/Spider-Man hybrid. The second season began in 2011, and the first six episodes come to DVD in “Iron Man: Armored Adventures — Season 2 Part 1.”
In “Armored Adventures,” Tony’s a 16-year-old supergenius, who is heir to tech company Stark International. His high school pals include James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Pepper Potts. As the second season begins, Rhodey is wearing the “War Machine” armor as Tony has been away from the armor. He’s forced to suit up again when corporate execs are kidnapped and Tony’s father’s company is endangered. The series features updated versions of classic Iron Man villains Whiplash and Blizzard. Tony must fight detractors in his own company — Obadiah Stane, running the corporation until Tony turns 18 — and outside it — new rival Justin Hammer, played as the Justin Timberlake of weapons companies.
