The Invincible Iron Man

Next January, Marvel Studios and Lionsgate will release the feature-length animated adventure The Invincible Iron Man on DVD. Following the style set by the recent Ultimate Avengers DVD movies, Iron Man will follow the exploits of Tony Stark as he fights against the Mandarin, a resurrected Chinese emperor.

Special features announced are: An Alternate Opening Sequence, "The Origin of Iron Man" featurette, "The Hall of Iron Man Armor" featurette, A Look at upcoming Marvel Animated Feature Dr. Strange and a Trailer Gallery.

According to the Lionsgate press release: "Past and present collide in this epic adventure that reveals the origin of Iron Man. While raising the ruins of a long buried Chinese kingdom, billionaire inventor Tony Stark digs up far more than he bargained for. He unleashes an age-old prophecy that foretells the resurrection of the Mandarin, the emperor of China's darkest and most violent dynasty. In order to confront the destructive force, Tony creates an armored suit infused with high-tech weaponry. To stop the evil that he himself has raised from the earth, Tony must become his greatest invention ever—Iron Man!

"The newly born champion must travel to the four corners of the earth to battle the Mandarin's henchmen, the Elementals—four magical warriors who harness the power of the elements—earth, water, wind, and fire—with deadly chemistry. But is the Iron Knight, as he his known in the prophecy, strong enough to defy fate and turn back the malevolent forces hell-bent on earth's destruction. "

OK, so it's not faithful to the accepted origin of ol' Shellhead but it might be what people need to eradicate the memory of the Marvel Action Hour Iron Man :)

Well yes I have mastered time travel, but in this instance it was a mistake made by Blogger, but I should have seen it.
