Story: Iron Man known as being a genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist. Iron Man is a hero that believes he’ll do whatever it takes to save the world from getting rid of all weapons of mass destruction and stop them falling into the wrong hands of his enemies, even if means he has to be a weapon himself.
Creating: Taken in the same area of my other photography work of Unbreakable and Silence at the construction site. When capturing this moment of Iron Man surrounded by all the rubble of broken rocks for the knocked down building from construction, it really reminded me of the scene from Iron Man 2008 when saves the villagers in ruins of their homes and that when capturing this photograph of him it was witnessing him in war zone and me being war photographer.
Facts: First introduced in the comics of ‘Tales of Suspense’ issue 39 in 1963, the creation of Iron Man began its existence when young people in the sixties were angry about an upcoming war was about to begin, this being the Vietnam War. Because of their anger towards the military forces for preparing to fight and stopping peaceful marches to stop going to war, the creators of Iron Man then saw this upcoming event to creating their new hero that was against war and be recognized for fighting for world peace.
. When creating the character of Tony Stark, Tony was actually an inspiration of Howard Hughes who was a successful businessman that was involved with aircrafts, movies and was one of the wealthiest businessmen of the 20th century owning many companies.
. With the amount of suits that Tony Stark has created in his hall of armours where he displays them all, but his first suit of armour was created in 1963 and was seen in his own comic book in 1968. After making one appearance, Stark then made the new and improved suit in his second ever appearance the Mark 2 which was painted in gold and put him in the spot light for comic book readers. After nearly being almost killed in issue 48 of ‘Tales of Suspense’, Stark then created the suit that everyone recognises Iron Man for in his famous red and yellow colours becoming Iron Man’s iconic suit and the repulsor rays that would be added into all of Starks next suits of armour.
