Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
Iron Man is a superhero in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was first seen in Tales of Suspense #39 (1963). The character was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck, and Jack Kirby. The rich industrialist and engineer Tony Stark developed a powered suit of armor to escape a kidnapping plot and went on to use progressively refined armor to protect his corporate empire Stark Industries and fight crime as Iron Man. Iron Man has been portrayed in several films by Robert Downey, Jr., including Iron Man (2008) and The Avengers (2012).
