IRON MAN: ARMORED ADVENTURES will premiere April 24 on Nicktoons Network as part of the network's partnership with Marvel Animation. The new animated half-hour series based on Marvel's armored super hero, and which includes an original theme song from rock band Rooney, follows a teenage Tony Stark as he attempts to balance the pressures of being a teen with his responsibilities as Iron Man.
The 26-episode adventure begins Friday, April 24 from 7 to 8 p.m. and continues regularly Friday at 7 p.m. on Nicktoons.
In the first premiere episode, "Iron, Forged in Fire, Part 1," teen genius Tony Stark has just finished his greatest invention: the Iron Man armor. But before he gets to show his dad, Tony's world is shattered. His father, his home, his entire life are all gone, and Tony is left picking up the pieces. But with the help from his friends Rhodey and Pepper, he begins to unravel the mystery surrounding the attack on his father. As Iron Man, Tony takes his first steps toward becoming a hero.
In the second premiere episode, "Iron, Forged in Fire, Part 2," Obadiah Stane has taken over Stark International and is converting Tony and his father's inventions into weapons. Tony now believes Stane may be behind the attack that took his father from him. Iron Man intends to get answers, but standing in his way are the Earth Movers -- Tony's once-peaceful inventions that have corrupted into massive weapons of destruction. And if Iron Man survives fighting against his own creations, he will still have to confront the mysterious armored figure known only as The Mandarin.
