Superman isn't the only hero that is made of steel, as Iron Man becomes the number one movie in America for the second week in a row, raking in over $175 million in the U.S. box office. It is the latest film incarnation from Marvel Comics, with Robert Downey, Jr. in the titultar role.

Billionaire Tony Stark (Downey) has been called an American patriot due his company's success in weapons manufacturing. But the real Tony Stark loves to gamble, to drink, and definitely loves women. Some like his friend and military liason, Rhodes, wants him to grow up and be responsible. Still, Tony enjoys living the good life -- for now.

On a trip to test the latest weapon called Jericho for his company, there was an attack made by terrorists, and Tony was almost left for dead. However, Tony is alive, thanks technology being used to keep his heart alive and beating. Terrorists wants him to build the Jericho for them; what they don't realize is that their hostage is making his own weapon -- an armor-plated suit.

After three months in the desert, Tony returns to the states with a new sense of purpose. He plans to pick up where he left off when he was a hostage, deciding to stop terrorists planning on using his weapons against the world. With the help of Rhodes and long-suffering girl Friday assistant Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow), Tony Stark becomes Iron Man.

This film has amazing special effects with breathtaking flying sequences and incredible action. But the movie belongs to comeback kid Robert Downey, Jr., who completely embodies all the qualities and characterstics of Tony Stark. Both the actor and the character have so much in common, for they have waged their own war with inner personal demons involving success, alcohol, and drugs. Though the latter has an alter-ego, neither Downey nor Stark sees themselves as heroic, but they learn from their mistakes, discovers what's important, and perserve in the end.

Robert Downey, Jr. is not only Tony Stark, but he is also Iron Man, the #1 film in America, now playing in theatres.
