Heroes,' 'Iron Man: Armored Adventures,'

Tony dresses very
professionally. Tony has a chest repulsor
transmitter, which keeps him alive. He was
injured in a blast and that device keeps the
shrapnel out of his heart. While as Iron Man he
has had many different variations of armored
suits over the years, but his most common is
red/maroon and yellow/gold as seen in the photo
He was created by Stan Lee,
Jack Kirby, Larry Lieber, and Don Heck. He was
played by Robert Downey, Jr. in the films. In
the animated cartoons he has been played by
Adrian Pasdar, Eric Loomis, Tom Kenny, Adrian
Petriw, and Robert Hays.

Iron Man cannot be found in
any Disney theme parks at this point in time.
Although there are rumors that Marvel characters
will be spotted in Disney parks in the very near
future, which is great news in my opinion.
