The Nicktoons Version of Iron Man Comes to DVD

Unlike the DC Animated Universe (DCAU) DVD releases, Marvel properties have all pretty much suffered from the same issue in that it isn't easy to discern exactly which animated incarnation of the franchise in question you're actually buying. I speak from experience as through the animated X-Men collections I happened upon when hoping for a release of The Animated Series (which is actually officially titled The Comic Book Collection).

That said, this much-anticipated DVD collection represents the latest series airing on NickToons in the USA and TeleToon up in Canada. Genius Entertainment is the company behind the Iron Man: Armored Adventures - Volume 1 release on both DVD and Blu-ray.

While many fans of the 1994 Iron Man the Animated Series were hoping for an official Marvel release due to the popularity of the 2008 live action feature film, it was this NickToons version of the franchise that was spawned to meet the demand. It should also be noted that while the Iron Man - The Complete Animated Series is for sale in its entirety here at Amazon, it is not an official Region 1 release.

Additionally this program is in no way affiliated with the 2007 animated feature The Invincible Iron Man from Lion's Gate.

Both the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the Armored Adventures, Volume 1 arrive on a single disc collection on October 20th (or 27th, depending on who you ask) with a total runtime of 132 minutes for the first 6 episodes of the animated show.

This represents the first official release of the latest version of the Iron Man franchise.

The source material is kept pretty well in tact with the classic comic book legend converted into a story that shows Tony Stark inventing the Iron Man suit during his teenage years as opposed to his older persona of the films.

No sooner does teen wunderkind Tony Stark complete his greatest invention: the Iron Man does his whole world unravel.

His father and home are gone and in a flash Tony is left picking up the pieces of a shattered life. With help from sidekicks Rhodey and Pepper, he begins to unravel the mystery surrounding the attack on his old man.

And as Iron Man, Tony Stark turns creativity and knowledge into the path of becoming a superhero.

In all a fun show that has wasted little time in getting the DVD treatment. Now here's hoping the success of this series will spur someone into stepping up to the plate to release an official Region 1 box set of Iron Man the 1994 Animated Series.
