The video from Toy People News shows the Iron Man Mark 43, a life-sized suit that has all the cool, high-tech features and capabilities as the onscreen Iron Man suit made popular by Robert Downey, Jr. in the Marvel movies. The suit is shown shifting its parts, opening and adjusting to allow for a human to step into it and wear it – exactly like the movies and the comic books.
Iron Man is a fictional superhero character in the Marvel Universe, created by Marvel Comics writer and editor Stan Lee. His human alter-ego is an American billionaire playboy, business magnate, genius engineer and inventor named Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark.
Iron Man made his first appearance in the comic Tales of Suspense in 1963, where Tony Stark suffers a severe chest injury after terrorists kidnap him. His captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction, but he creates a powered suit of armor and escapes. Stark later modifies this suit with technological devices and continues upgrading it through his company, Stark Industries. He then uses the suit to save and protect the world as Iron Man.
The first Iron Man movie came out in 2008, and closely followed the comic book’s origin story. It was a massive commercial hit, earning billions worldwide, and relaunched Robert Downey Jr.’s acting career. A second and third Iron Man movie came out as a result, with a fourth reputedly in the works.
In the comics, the character was a founding member of the superhero team The Avengers, which has translated onscreen to several highly successful movies featuring both Iron Man and The Avengers. Downey’s Stark has also appeared in some of Marvel’s stand-alone superhero movies, such as Captain America: Civil War in 2016.
The suit presented in the video works almost exactly the same way the movie version of Iron Man’s suit – although it would take plenty more to make it capable of flight, as in the superhero world.
