With all the long-term plans Marvel Studios has announced regarding their superhero films, it is quite understandable to lose sight of how it all began - with Iron Man. Here is a useful (and quirky) video for Marvel and Iron Man fans who want to quickly catch up on how the journey (mostly Tony Stark's) began.

In the latest episode, they focus on Marvel's popular Iron Man film franchise.

"Iron Man is one man's dramatic journey from functioning alcoholic to functioning alcoholic in a death machine," the YouTube site explains. "With Marvel planning to fill up the rest of your adult life with super hero movies, you're probably searching for a way to get caught up quickly. That's what we're here for."
