As I mentioned previously in these pages, the Marvel Anime team-up between Marvel Animation and anime powerhouse Madhouse is now properly under way, with the release of what looks to be an exciting Japanese take on Iron Man, current media poster boy for Marvel.

The first episode does little more than introduce us to all the main characters, lay down the reason for Tony finding himself in the land of the rising sun in the first place, and then proceeds to tease us with the introduction of a rather nasty looking villain: Scopio!

(Not to mention the mutterings around a certain sinister-sounding Zodiac group).

The following a couple of screenshots from episode 1, just to get you more in the mood for this explosive new title! ;)
