Iron Man was a custom monster truck from FELD Motorsports that ran from 2010-2014, based on the comic book character of the same name. It was driven by Lee O'Donnell, Dustin Brown, Morgan Kane, and Scott Buetow. The truck debuted at Monster Jam Live Atlanta in 2010 with Lee O'Donnell behind the wheel to promote the Iron Man 2 movie. The truck has competed in all Monster Jam World Finals' from 2010-2014.

History

  • 2009 - Iron Man is announced to begin competing in 2010 (along with a revived Spider-Man).
  • 2010 - Iron Man debuted with Lee O'Donnell driving. The truck also made it to the World Finals the same year.
  • 2011 - Scott Buetow debuts a second Iron Man truck. It also makes it's international debut in Costa Rica.
  • 2013 - Scott moves to Team Hot Wheels Firestorm. Morgan Kane takes over as the driver for the second truck. Morgan drove the truck on the Young Guns Shootout while Lee drove in the World Finals. Later that year, Lee ran a different design on Iron Man for the Path of Destruction Tour with a Mark 42 design to promote the Iron Man 3 movie.
  • 2014 - Morgan moves to Maximum Destruction. Dustin Brown takes over the second truck. At the end of the year, the FELD-Marvel contract expires, and the truck is retired. Lee moves to Zombie Hunter and Dustin moved to Monster Mutt.
  • 2016 - The body was modified and became Alien Invasion.
  • 2018 - Monster Jam put up a poll via it's YouTube account, where the fans were asked which was their favorite discontinued truck. Iron Man was on the list of answers, along with Spider-ManAir Force AfterburnerBulldozer and Captain's Curse. This doesn't necessarily means that the winner would return to the circuit, but it could mean that Monster Jam has this and the other trucks put on hold.

Trivia

  • In it's first show(s) in Costa Rica, it emerged from a giant McDonald's box (similar to how Donkey Kong debuted).
