Everybody wants a happy ending, right? But it doesn't always roll that way. Maybe this time. I'm hoping if you play this back, it's in celebration. I hope families are reunited. I hope we get it back, in somewhat like a normal version of the planet has been restored, if there ever was such a thing.

This is only a first, crude effort. Stark has perfected his design

Let's face it-- This isn't the worst thing you've caught me doing. I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I created to defend them and protect them, and I saw that I had become part of a system that is comfortable with zero accountability.
~ Iron Man expressing regret to Pepper Potts about his time as an arms dealer

Mr. Stark displays textbook...narcissism...Agreed.
~ Iron Man about his report for the Avengers Initiative

You're missing the point. There's no throne, there is no version of this, where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it's too much for us, but it's all on you. Because if we can't protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we'll avenge it.
~ Iron Man to Loki

And so, as Christmas morning began, my journey had reached its end. You start with something pure, something exciting. Then, come the mistakes. The compromises. We create our own demons.

So if I were to wrap this up tight with a bow or whatever, I guess I'd say my armor was never a distraction or a hobby. It was a cocoon. And now, I'm a changed man. You can take away my house, All my tricks and toys. One thing you can't take away... I am Iron Man.

~ Tony Stark

Wait a second. No one else is gonna deal with the fact that Cap just said "Language"?
~ Iron Man's infamous quip to Captain America about profanity control

You listening? That little witch is messing with your mind. You're stronger than her. You're smarter than her. You're Bruce Banner.
~ Iron Man to a possessed, enraged Hulk

Hot Toys IM MK 45 Transparent.png
Like the old man said, together.
~ Iron Man to the Avengers in the battle against Ultron

He wanted to make a difference I suppose, but we won't know because we dropped a building on him while we were kicking ass. There is no decision making process here. We need to be put in check! In whatever form that takes I'm game. If we can't accept limitations, if we are boundary less, we are no better than the bad guys.
~ Iron Man to Captain America about the Sokovia Accords and his own guilt trip

I'm sorry, Earth is closed today. You better pack it up and get outta here.
~ Iron Man to Ebony Maw

And I... am... Iron Man.
~ Iron Man's final words to Thanos


Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark is an eccentric self-described genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist, and the former head of Stark Industries. Using his own great wealth and exceptional technical knowledge, Stark enjoyed the playboy lifestyle for many years until he was kidnapped by the Ten Rings. With his life on the line, Stark created an armored suit which he used to escape his captors, returning home and becoming the armored superhero known as Iron Man, battling against terrorists as well as his own former business partner Obadiah Stane. Stark enjoyed the fame that came with his new secret identity and decided to share it with the world, publicly announcing himself as Iron Man.

With the world yet again being threatened, Stark joined the Avengers and helped defeat the Chitauri and Loki, and had indebted the rest of his life defending Earth against threats, both internal and external.

Both he and Captain America were responsible for tearing up the Avengers during the Civil War.

As a final bid to stop Thanos, Stark sacrificed himself and died as a hero.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Repulsors: Powered by the Arc Reactor, the suits can project a blast of magnetic repulsion from its palms, used for the armor's flight stabilization, as well being Iron Man's main range weapon.
    • Unibeam: When siphoning energy directly to the Arc Reactor, the armor can fire a massive repulsor from its chest that can send flying giant enemies like Iron Monger.
  • Missiles: The armors contain several sets of miniaturized missiles mounted on the arms, shoulders, and legs of the suit, such as anti-tank missiles and guided missiles.
  • Laser System: The armors are equipped with a palladium-powered laser system located in the back of the gauntlets, these can easily cut through any object, from slice armored androids to cut a hole in a space ship.
  • Artificial Intelligent Systems: Natural-language user interface computer systems that provide suit feedback, tactical analysis, and tactical countermeasures. They are even able to analyze Captain America's fight pattern and provide a programmed countermeasure tactic.
    • House Party Protocol: A special command given by Tony to his I.A to active, summon, and control Iron Man armors to his aid.
  • Remote Propulsion: After injecting himself with computer chips on his arm, Stark can now mentally control the individual pieces of the armor, allowing him to summon it at any point of the battle, and even trap other people inside.
  • Nanite Manipulation: Stark is able to manipulate the nanites of the Bleeding Edge, allowing it to materialize the suit and form a wide variety of weapons and tools, including repulsor cannons, proton cannons, energy hammers, jackhammers, blades, shields, snares, magnetic clamps, coolant blasters, suture spray, wings, and rocket thrusters.
