The film has not been received particularly well, especially in comparison of the previous Ultimate Avengers films (though notably, Marc Worden reprises his role as Iron Man in this film and would do so again for ''WesternAnimation/PlanetHulk''). However, some elements of the film do seem to have left a lasting impression upon the franchise, Marvel even seems to have adopted the opening musical score as the main theme for the character, which has even been heard used in ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
