The first of the Marvel superheroes
Iron Man is one of the most famous heroes of the Marvel cinematic universe. Although historically or even in the comics, he is not the first, he is the first of the new generation of Marvel films to have his movie, laying the foundation for the Avengers saga. Real name Tony Stark, Iron Man is a billionaire and a genius engineer who, after being kidnapped by terrorists, has created a complete armor that allows him to protect himself but also to fly. He also includes weapons systems and an artificial intelligence to assist him. Of course, he will soon be of interest to S.H.I.E.L.D. who will ask him to join the AVENGERS initiative when particularly dangerous enemies arrive on Earth.
