Tom Izzo becomes Iron Man for Michigan State's 2012 Midnight Madness.

Midnight Madness 2012 has hit America, and the countdown to the start of the 2012-2013 NCAA Men's basketball season is underway. As usual at Michigan State, this means Spartan head men's basketball coach makes a dramatic entrance into the Breslin Center. He's been a hippie, an astronaut, and this year, a superhero. Taking a nod from the summer's blockbuster hit The Avengers, Tom Izzo is...Iron Man!

The Izzo will clearly be fighting the forces of evil this year. The forces of evil being Michigan HC John Breslin, Ohio State HC Thad Matta, and  Wisconsin HC Bo Ryan, who just happened to appear in a video before The Izzo's entrance as "The Legion of Doom." Apparently, someone in East Lansing forgot the LoD was DC. The Masters of Evil are the Avengers' enemies over at Marvel.
