Steel is an action film from 1997 that features the acting talents of Shaquille O'Neil. Shaq plays John Henry Irons, a weapons developer whose trade winds up paralyzing Susan Sparks, a close friend. As an act of penance, Irons works with Susan to create a suit of armor that will resist the various weapons he previously earned a living from; weapons that Irons' rival Nathan Burke plans to sell to the highest of bidders. The film distances itself from its DC Comics origins by utilizing original characters and villains for Irons to deal with, rather than incorporate Superman's rogue's gallery.
