Default LAME: the new iron-man cartoons are about a teen iron-man!

Yes! it just got confirmed and guess what? is sooo effing lame
from the artcile: "For Nicktoons, the interpretation translates into a teen Iron Man, a superhero closer in age to the network's young viewers."

Really the 90's are the golden age for super hero animation, in 2000's every body is trying to make superheors teenagers, i was really hoping that this cartoon will be a good one and was looking forward to it well not anymore!

I am really so freaking sick of this lets take the superheroes to teenage years formula!
its ok for spiderman to be a teenager since the story in the lee ditko comics started with spidey in high school, but its so damn stupid and direspectful to characters like iron man to show him as a teenage superhero.

Whats next? A preschool hulk ? or a middle school thor animated series

Thats just messed up i hope this series gets canceled such a disrespect to marvel characters

Yikes, I guess that's the rule now. Have a superhero movie then come out with a lame kiddy cartoon version of that character later.

Just a bad idea from the get go. I wonder what would've happened if Bruce Timm had decided to make Batman: The Teen Years?

Wow...this is beyond lame. Lame has evolved into ultra-lame or something like that. One of the crappiest things I've ever heard.

all i could think when reading that was a SHAZAM! series lol and god help us all if anything involving Captain Marvel gets off the ground lol

but ya this is definately lame to say the least, like its been said how is it even possible to think that this kid is going to be able to do this. just a pointless change taking away from the character...unless they pull a teenage drunken binder with tony ill prolly never even catch this now lol

A teen Iron-Man movie would have to be about how Tony Stark rose to power and built Stark Industries.

Any story of a teenager in an Iron Man costume is just plain retarded.

Actually i hated the spectacular spider-man design at first but they grew up on me i still wish they cna change a bit but storywise it is so true to the lee/ditko era you might wanna give it a chance, the lizard episode topped the lizard episode from the 90's show which i grew up on.

Its understandable for spidey to be in high scholl since in the cannon comics peter became spidey in high school. But a teen iron man is plain retarded, how the **** did he get his armor? an ironman in high schooll??? i mean really i dont see the point, but again this show is made by the same people who made the new fantastic four cartoon which sucked so we shouldnt be surprised at all.

One of the things that the film makers keep talking about in interviews is how they were excited to get to work on a superhero who is an adult, and therefore has more adult qualities and a more adult storyline.
I thought this animated series was going to be made for kids who enjoyed the film, but if this "Teen Tony" thing is true, then it will be completely different from the movie.

And being an older hero is one of the great aspects of Tony Starks character. Making him a teenager is a horrible idea (I never liked the brief phase when Tony was an alternate reality Teen in the comics)

Official synopsis of the series:

Iron Man: The Animated Series (26 half-hour eps):

Tony Stark, heir to a billion-dollar corporation, lives a life of luxury, free to pursue his chief interests -- seeking extreme thrills, solving scientific mysteries and creating mind-boggling inventions. But everything goes horribly wrong when a tragic accident robs Tony of his father and nearly costs him his own life. Now dependent on his own impressive technology for survival and dedicated to battling corruption, Tony must reconcile the pressure of teenage life with the duties of a Super Hero. Inside his remarkable invention, Tony Stark is geared for high-speed flight, high-tech battles and high-octane adventure! He is Iron Man.

thats spider-man who delas with that problem and not ironman you dumb bastards (im talking to the creators of this lame show)

WOW this is just beyond lame!

This is disappointing ...and yes, lame.

Because I'm not judging the show, but rather the decision to portray the character as a teenager who battles crime, while simultaneously carrying on the good fight against acne. With all the gadgetry that Iron Man employs, as well as the avenues available to the writers because of Stark's wealth, this show could easily be tailored to target the demographic they seem to be shooting for without enacting such a wholesale departure.

The end product could be quality entertainment, but I don't need to wait until the premiere to know that I'd prefer a more straightforward adaptation.

I have been having doubts about this series ever since the first information became known, and now that i have found out that the character will be turned into a teenager i have completely lost interest in watching it. If it turns out to be a great show of amazing quality then i will watch it, but i dont think that will happen. Iron Man deserves a great new animated series, but this is not it.

But that was not a teenage Bruce Wayne.
This series is changing one of the key aspects of Tony Stark's character just so the young kids who watch the show can "relate" to him. Batman the Animated series did not change Bruce Wayne into a teenager, and lots of kids loved it. The main character of animated/kids shows does not need to be young for kids to like them.

I guess Marvel is only concerned about using animation to lure in uninitiated kids. I understand their objective but why do they have to do it at the expense of the fans they already have? One thing I know is that kids don't like being talked down to. Making dumb-down kiddie crap won't win over any new fans. It's also limited thinking. Kids turned on by the movie aren't going to like a completely different cartoon version.

The new kiddie Spider-Man is awful. Anime and goofy Fantastic Four was a flop. Why not make intelligent animation based off the actual storylines from the books? X-Men did this in a water-downed way and it was a hit in the 90's. Quit gearing everything for eight year olds and you'll be surprised at how many kids will be attracted to the product.
