With my gloriously twisted mind, I picture Iron Man as a dude that got his super powers from being slammed in the face with a heavy metal iron by a pissed off wife. That sort of Iron Man wouldn’t be very pretty… but maybe his shirt would always be properly de-wrinkled.
Anyway, let’s discuss the Iron Man we already know and love. The first Iron Man was a smash hit. We love our superhero movies! Iron Man is sort of reminiscent of Batman, only a lot more colorful and dare I say, cocky. He’s rich and can build/buy anything he wants. He’s also the most eligible bachelor in town. In the end, unlike Batman, he unveils his secret identity and tells the world he is Iron Man. If you haven’t seen the first one, you must live under a rock. In case you do, in fact, live under a rock, here is the basic synopsis:
Our hero is Tony Stark, the super wealthy CIO of Stark Industries. Stark’s company is dedicated to weapons manufacturing on a massive scale. In Afghanistan on a mission to demonstrate new missiles, Tony and his convoy are attacked. He is taken as a hostage by the enemy. While in captivity, Tony builds an Iron Man suit and escapes. When he comes home safely he stops weapons manufacturing so he can dedicate more time to perfecting his suit which he then uses to fight evil.
Now the much anticipated sequel, Iron Man 2, hits theaters tomorrow, Friday April 7th. You will see some of the original cast (Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow) along with some new sexy familiar faces such as Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke. This sequel promises to deliver action packed fight scenes coupled with Robert’s famous sarcastic humor.
Now you don’t have to just sit back and watch Iron Man kick the bad guy’s asses and run away with the hot girls, but you can BE Iron Man and experience the life of a superhero for yourself! We’ve got the new movie costumes and the comic book version costumes for kids and adults. If you don’t want to go all out but still want to pick up chicks, just borrow one of your friends kids and dress him up like Iron Man. It’s almost better than walking a poodle through the park. The ladies will be running over to say how cute your little iron man is. Superheros are strategic and you’ll hit a home run with this one.
