Iron Man – The Iron Man who came to save the world

Many of the characters that come to mind as cartoons can be seen in recent action movies.  The audience, who loved cartoons, wanted to see the characters they loved as real characters.  In making these comics into films, the focus is on two of the world’s leading institutions.  They are Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Entertainment Universe.  Both of these institutions are very popular.  Popular comic characters are used through these two institutions.  Characters such as Bat Man, Super Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Wonder Woman, Black Widow are the most popular characters.  Meanwhile, the characters created by Marvel Comic are special.  These characters are built by a special man named Stan Lee.  The MCU or Marvel Cinematic Universe begins with the film Iron Man (2008).  Today we will focus on the Iron Man who started the Marvel universe through this article.

The protagonist of this film is a man named Tony Stark.  He is the current owner of Stark Industries, an arms manufacturer.  At one point he was abducted by terrorists while on a tour of Afghanistan with the US military.  He is then imprisoned in a cave, where he meets another professor.  Terrorists surgically attach something to Tony’s body that generates energy.  They both try to escape and they create a weapon for that.  It is the original design of the Iron Man costume.  Using this design, Tony Stark escapes from the scene.

But this is not a normal problem and Tony thinks it should be solved.  He then redesigns the Iron Man asthma by adding more technical stuff.  He then fights terrorists in Afghanistan and saves people.  Meanwhile, it is revealed that everything from Tony’s abduction happened to a plan.  Tony also believes that Stark Industries’ CEO is behind these plans.  The enemy recreates a suit using the notes used by Tony in the cave and parts of the original Iron Man he left behind.  Thus begins a war between Tony and him.  Tony finally wins after a fierce battle.
