This weekend sparked the start of the “Summer Super Hero Movie”, with the release of Iron Man. This is another superhero taken from the vast “Marvel Comics” collection of heroes. In this one billionaire weapons designer, Tony Starks (Robert Downey Jr.) is captured in Afghanistan by a group of terrorist, while on a tour to promote his newest missile. The terrorist happen to be big fans of Mr. Stark’s weapons of mass destruction. They try to force him to make them his newest style missile which can cause miles of devastation with its detonation. While captured, he plans an escape by making an armored suit to wear to fight off his captives. He has success with the suit, and when he gets back to the States he starts development on version #2 of his new flying armored suit. He calls a press conference and reveals that he will no longer make weapons for war. This doesn’t hold well with his partner, Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges). With the help of his very advanced lab, he makes a second suit which is far superior to its first prototype. After he goes on a revenge mission to seek and destroy the leader of the terrorist who held him, the military become aware of a new weapon that has somehow did the job they couldn’t do. Even after Tony thinks that he has destroyed all of the terrorist’s weapons he finds out that they are somehow still getting shipments of his weapons. With the help of his assistant Virginia “Pepper” Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), he discovers that his partner is only out for himself, and wants to continue selling weapons at any cost. Also helping Stark is his long time friend, James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Terrence Howard), who has a high rank in the Air Force, and keeps them from going after Starks whenever he’s flying around in his new suit. Things get ugly, and Starks finds himself going head to head with a revamped version of his first suit.
Remember anyone can be a superhero, as long as you have values in life. Ezo
