About Iron Man Costume

Intrepid, intelligent, and indomitable, the invincible Iron Man is one of Marvel Comics most famous creations. Perfect for the holidays, Iron Man costumes are popular with kids and adults alike. Iron Man was created in 1963 by the legendary writer Stan Lee, and first put to paper by the acclaimed artists Jack Kirby and Don Heck. In the original series, an engineering genius named Tony Stark was captured in Vietnam and created the suit to escape captivity. In the 2008 film adaptation directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey, Jr., Stark was instead captured in Afghanistan, and created his armor to escape from Taliban fighters. In this way, the story was reintroduced, and Iron Man enraptured a whole new generation of fans. For kids that wish to look like their hero, toddler Iron Man costumes are perfect for pint-sized fans. If big kids want to get in on the fun, you can also find Iron Man costumes suitable for adults. Best of all, an Iron Man muscle costume comes with some foam muscles already stitched into the suit, so even an adult with a less than perfect physique can look like a hero, at least for a night. With thousands of reliable sellers, no matter what kind of costume you are looking for you are sure to find a great selection on eBay.
