A camcorder is a small portable device that allows the user to record video and sound.
The early history of the camcorder is not specified.
At some point a man and his friend decided to head to a pier on a beach in California. The cameraman decided to check out the women, much to the embarrassment of his friend. As he turned to watch one gorgeous girl he saw a large laser blast hit the beach. He turned to see a man pointing up.
The beam fired again and hit the nearby ferris wheel destroying it. The man ran to the edge of the pier where he saw the superhero Iron Man fighting a giant robot out in the water. The robot fired several more times each missing the armored hero. They did hit the water creating large waves that splashed onto the pier. Their battle caused much of the surrounding water to spray up creating a mist.
Iron Man flew around causing several explosions on its shoulder, leg, hip, and chest. The robot fired into the air but missed. It fired again but hit only water. Iron Man then deployed something that caused explosions all over its body. The robot then waved the smoke away. It reached up and grabbed Iron Man out of the air. It then dropped him and began walking towards the pier.
Just then Iron Man attacked and caused the robot to stop as its body short-circuited. It kneeled into the water before it finally exploded.
The pieces of debris flew in all directions. One crashed into the water next to the pier near the cameraman. One piece landed on the end of the pier completely destroying it. One more piece was going to crash into the pier on top of the cameraman. Luckily, Iron Man saw this and flew under it to catch it. Iron Man blasted his boots to full strength and saved the man.
The battle then became a major news story that was seen across the country. The man sold his camera footage and the news station used it in their story while the reporter described what happened.
Tony Stark, the secret identity of Iron Man, was driving James Rhodes down the freeway as they watched the footage. Rhodey used the battle as reason for why Tony should not battle alone and should allow S.H.I.E.L.D. to deal with such threats. Tony ignored him and when HYDRA attacked the United Nations he went off alone.
