This show originally aired from 1994 to 1996 by multiple television networks, including UPN Kids and Jetix. Disney XD starting airing episodes in 2009.
The Disney XD animated TV series Iron Man, based on the Marvel Comics' superhero, pits Tony Stark (Iron Man's alter-ego), industrialist billionaire, against his arch-enemy Mandarin, whose goal is to conquer any and all worlds. The series is essentially a "stand-alone" production, rarely referencing the comic book version, instead using original storylines by veteran screenwriter Ron Friedman. The legendary Stan Lee also contributed to several episodes.
Mandarin has plenty of colleagues to assist him with his evil derring-do, including Grey Gargoyle, Blizzard, Dreadknight, Hypnotia and Fin Fang Foom. Iron Man has his own team of fellow crimefighters, the most notable being Spider Woman, Century, Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye.
The "real star" (in many viewer's minds) are the impressive and technologically advanced armor(s) and accessories the hero utilizes. From radiation to stealth to bio-energy to hydro and space armor, Iron Man's extensive collection of protective gear was tailored for almost any possible scenario.
