Got to be truthful.

At first i hated this show. Watched the first two episodes and it reminded me of MTV Spidey, and that is NOOOT a good thing at all.

But watching the marathon they have on today, i am pleasantly surprised they have improved on some of the writing and characterization. Yeah it is still teenage-Stark and co., and it has that sometimes awkward CG style, but the stories are a bit more enjoyable. I dont think i would ever pick the show up on dvd, but when its on...i dont turn it off right away.

They know that they need to attract children and teens to their titles. After watching the show my 11 year old sister WHO DOESN'T READ COMICS wanted to pick up an Iron Man comic. I took her to pick up the recent issue of Invincible Iron Man. She said it wasn't like the show. But still good. So Iron Man Armor Adventures is working just how Marvel planned.
I just caught up on this show over the marathon. It's okay, not great, animation and character designs aren't that great. However, to address this post, yes the show isn't for fanboys, but in my mind this revamping doesn't really make sense at all. The Iron Man movie was a hit last year and this cartoon is meant to capatilize on that success obviously, but it's presently vastly different characters, a teenage Tony, hyperactive teen girl Pepper. The only characters that are somewhat like their movie counterparts are Rhodey and Stane, to me that doesn't make much sense. Wish they would've given this show the Spectacular Spider-man treatment, combine comics and movie versions of the character to tell familar stories with a twist. Since it's the summer and nothing else is on, I'm going to keep watching, but this show could've been done a lot better.

I just can't watch the show without hoping Pepper will get fragged.

"Meltdown" Also glad they actually adressed the fact that Tony does not NEED to go to school. Also, the whole Tony Stark/Peter Parker comparisons can stop here: Tony thought he killed Living Laser, and didn't care. Cold, but it goes a bit more with his comic persona.
Didn't need it? His father says he needs it. But at the end, Tony still cheats on his Shakespeare test.

Speaking of Pepper, they changed her first name to Patricia? Seriously? Did they not want to take one minute to Wiki her to find out her first name? Or did these geniuses think "Patricia "Pepper" Potts sounds good, hey it's worked for J. Jonah Jameson, it'll work for Pepper. Screw Stan Lee and Don Heck."

Also renaming Madame Mask Whitney Stane and making her Obi's daughter is really f***ing stupid. Batman and Robin called, they want their idea back.

Probably not because he needs to be educated. Tony's pretty smart. It was probably to let him have a normal life and learn about hard work and responsability.

Who knows how making her Stane's daughter will turn out? It will probably give her character development, and make her transformation from a seemingly normal, nice girl to a full-blown villain more interesting. Deveation from the source material sometimes can be a good thing. (See The Spectacular Spider-Man)

I actually prefer a change like that over Teen Tony.

Didn't get the "Batman and Robin" bit. Could you explain it for me?

Its a decent cartoon, much rather it'd been an adult Tony and followed along the premise of the movie. I'm more bothered by the animation than I am the fact its Teen-Tony. Kinda reminds me of the other Iron Man cartoon, Tony would suit up and for like 2 seconds they would make it "virtual" when he put his helmet on...cheesy! lol

Personally I got a wonderful idea that I think would make her calm the heck down. I just wouldn't dare mention it on these boards running the risk of expulsion.

Damn, forgot to write what i thought about the episode on friday. Anyway, I thought it was really good. I'll write my review later.

As I said once before, is this show amazing? No, but it isn't terrible either.

Tried to watch one Episode but couldn't endure it. Why can't they just make their cartoons based on the comics? I don't mind putting a new spin on things, but come on, Teenagers? Why is it that Marvel screws most of their cartoons anyway? Like that Avengers cartoon which I haven't watched, which didn't have Captain America or Thor. But every member had some kind of power suit.

Marvel cartoons should strive to be more like the DCAU cartoons or Spectacular Spider-Man.

the show itself it just one big crap idea. I don't want to see a teenage Tony Stark anymore than I would want to see a teenage Bruce Wayne, Bruce Banner, Blade, Punisher, Daredevil, etc. etc.

I refuse to check this show out and will also be passing on any DVD's they release

Yeah, its really sad that the idiotic "Teen Tony" mantra will forever haunt an actually decent show. I'll gladly take it over the piece of crap that was the 90´s show (first season anyways)

Funny you mention that, Hulk, Black Panther and Nick Fury are going to guest star in the future.

Are they going to make Banner and T'Challa teenagers and Fury into a 20 year old or are they really going to really screw everything up and make them adults leaving Tony as the only teen? Rick Jones will also be guest starring with the Hulk, maybe he'll be a toddler in the show.

This whole thing is stupid, I can't wait until it gets cancelled.

if Nick Fury and Hulk end up being teenagers, then this show is no better than freaking Muppet Babies

infact, it reminds me of when The Simpsons poked fun at the popularity of Watchmen with "Watchmen Babies"

which is pretty much what this show is "Iron Man Babies"

Nick Fury´s age is irrevelant. Since his aging is slower than an average human´s, I´d expect him to appear the same if Tony is a teen, and later as an adult.

Who knows about Panther and Hulk, though?

But a chain smoking old war vet won't appeal to the kiddies, so Fury does need to be a teen.

Just remember guys, we are going to see some more genuine Iron Man type of material in the Avengers cartoon.

Meh. It's not that bad, to be honest.

It could have been worse, like Rhodey speaking in hip-hop slang, or Tony being a nerd that is constantly picked on, or the Mandarin being the school bully.

At least they stay out of the high school stuff as much as possible, and focus more on the Iron Man and villain stories.

I've been watching it and like most everyone else, it's not great but it's not bad either. I keep thinking though, they could have done this same thing with adult Tony just as well. Still, it's better than the 90's show.

Anyone catch the latest episode, "Ready, AIM, Fire"? It featured a badass version of the Controller, and an awesome MODOK mention.
