NICKTOONS POWERS UP FOR SEASON TWO OF IRON MAN: ARMORED ADVENTURES

New Season of 26 Episodes Following Tony Stark's Teen Years to Roll Out in 2011

NEW YORK - May 21, 2010 - Striking while the iron's hot, Nicktoons announces a second season of the network's hit series Iron Man: Armored Adventures to bow in 2011. The new season of 26 episodes will continue to weave in iconic Marvel characters, such as Nick Fury, Whiplash, Dr. Doom and Magneto, and will feature the epic resolution of the Makluan Ring saga. Season two will have even more of the fast-paced and action-packed episodes that helped Nicktoons reach its highest-rated and most-watched year in history with boys 6-11, kids 6-11 and total viewers in 2009.

"From the mega successful feature films to the timeless comic books, fans can't get enough of the Iron Man character," said Keith Dawkins, Nicktoons General Manager, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Programming Partnerships. "We hear our fans clamoring for more Iron Man: Armored Adventures, so we're thrilled to bring on a second season to give them what they want."

"We are very happy to have Nicktoons continue as the home for Iron Man: Armored Adventures," said Eric S. Rollman, Marvel's President of Animation. "The Nicktoons team are all Marvel aficionados which is reflected in the promotion and marketing they put behind the show. The new season is well into production and promises even more action, adventure and fun to our new and loyal fans."

The animated series, which is Nicktoons' highest-rated original series premiere with boys 6-11, follows a teenage Tony Stark after a tragic accident robbed him of his father and would have cost him his own life if he wasn't wearing his newest invention - an experimental suit of invincible armor. To honor his father's memory, he now uses his awesome armor and technical know-how to protect those who would also fall prey to tragedy and corruption. By constantly upgrading his armored suit, Iron Man can fend off a variety of villains, engage in epic battles and thwart diabolical conspiracies. He is a new hero for the digital age, a mechanized knight in ever-evolving, adaptable armor. Now dependent on his own impressive technology for survival and dedicated to battling corruption, he must balance the pressure of teenage life with the duties of a super hero.
