It begins where the first one ended. Tony Stark is Iron Man. Iron Man is Tony Stark. And he’s full of it. Same old Tony; brash, arrogant, smart. His newfound fame made him an easy target. The government wants in on the Iron Man suit technology. Of course, he refuses.

Another plot comes from Ivan Vanko, a troubled physicist. Son of Anton Vank0, a former partner of Tony’s father, Howard. The first team to design the arc reactor. He wants revenge for the disgrace brought by the Stark family to the Vanko family. Powered by an arc reactor he made himself plus a whip-like attachment which harnesses the power of the reactor.

A new love interest comes in the form of Natalie Rushman, a lawyer from Stark Industries’ legal department. Later known as Natalie Romanov aka Black widow, member of the elite group. S.H.I.E.L.D. But Tony eventually ends up with his secretary turned CEO then quits CEO Pepper Potts.

Tony’s friend, Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes gets to wear a Mark II suit and has a little scuffle with Iron Man during Tony’s “alleged” final birthday party. He takes off with the suit and surrenders it to the military for study and enhancement. A slow weapons-design rival in Justin Hammer has an ultimate chance to modify the Mark II suit to become War Machine.

Outstanding but seem short fight scenes. The ladies, as always, very fine. Very funny at times. More integration from the storyline of S.H.I.E.L.D, probably in preparation for more Marvel characters in the works. Best scene: the suitcase suit, damn! Wait for the after credits.
