ANIME: New IRON MAN Anime Featurette Debuts

Marvel Anime's Iron Man series is coming to DVD tomorrow, and a featurette from the release has been released. In it, Jeph Loeb discusses altering the Armored Avenger for the Japanese audience.

Tony Stark arrives in Japan to help implement his goal of world peace by building the Arc Reactor, a carbon-neutral power plant that, once operational, will be able to provide limitless (thus free) energy to the world. Set to retire his Iron Man persona, and about to mass-produce a line of Iron Man armor known as "Iron Man Dio", Stark's plans are derailed by a series of high tech Mech monsters. Zodiac, a top secret organization funded by the terrorist group A.I.M. is out to disrupt the Arc Station, steal the Dio armor and put an end to Iron Man. The Armored Avenger's fight is only just beginning.

Marvel Anime: Iron Man - The Complete Series hits DVD stores tomorrow.

Zodiac from Bendis and Bagley's Avengers Assemble? Cool. I wonder if this is the Cinematic Universe. It certainly looked like it, in the early trailers.

I watched all the Marvel Animes. In order from Best to worst.
1- Blade
2- X-Men
3- Iron Man
4- Wolverine

Blade just was interesting and pretty well written and I liked seeing a more Marvel version of Blade, with nods to the comic and all.

X-men was a Japanese version of the Proteus saga and yet it was still very original.

Iron Man really just worked well in the setting and with the story they came up with. Some characters didn't get enough face time but it was cool.

I was most disappointed with this. Great storyline (Basically the japan story from Frank Miller) but tweaked a bit. I really wish they had gone all out with the violence and blood. Also Milo Ventimigllia wasn't right. I tried to get into his voice but it just got to me.

@Gusto: lol! Love the kid's face, so serious.

@itsbarry: I'm surprised you are still on this site.

Galactus, itsbarry would LOVE to be booted. Just sayin'.

@Dedpool: I have seen them all as well (I am in the middle of the Blade series).

I think that the voice casting is unfortunatly the downfall for most of these, I agree that the voice for Wolverine was pretty funny. I still think of his Keanu voice yelling "Mariko!" lol.

I liked the series. Certainly more entertaining than the Wolverine anime in my opinion.

LOL @ Gusto and the brawling kids.

This series wasn't bad.

Blade was the best tho.

@Gusto: This one is for tea wherever he is

I think Marvel should stop all the anime series's they were all terrible, was excited when first heard about the project, but these were so awful, which is a great shame

@SpiderFan35- Guy's thinking: "Okay , ignore the penis/ignore the penis/ignore the the match/win the match/win the match..."

@itsbarry- I agree with you for the most part but Marvel's latest stuff is pretty good though. Ultimate Spiderman is just alot of fun, and Avangers rocks! Still saddend that WOlverine and the X-men and SPectacular got cancelled though. That said Young Justice is amazing!!!
