Minimate Spotlight #41 Steel

Filed under: Minimate Spotlight — Donny B @ 11:35 am

Action figures have long been a perfect compliment to comic books, since every kid (or kid at heart) has that natural desire to act out adventures with their favorite heroes off the drawn page. Every so often, a unique style of figure comes along that breaks the mold, so to speak. Each Saturday, Donny B will be showcasing various offerings from Art Asylum’s take on the ‘block figure’, with a weekly spotlight on Minimates.

Doctor John Henry Irons was a brilliant weapons engineer who crossed paths with none other than Superman as he fell from a skyscraper one fateful day. When Irons asked how he could show his gratitude, Superman told him to “live a life worth saving.”

After Superman’s death at the hands of Doomsday, Irons donned a ‘home made’ suit of powered armor and took up the good fight to honor his hero’s name.
