|“||Admit 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.||„|

|“||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 out own demons.

|~ Iron Man to a possessed, enraged Hulk|
|“||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|
|“||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.||„|

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 him and Captain America were responsible for tearing up the Avengers during Civil War.
As a final bid to stop Thanos, Stark sacrificed himself, and died as a hero.

- Repulsors: Powered by the Arc Ractor, the suits can project blast of magnetic repulsion from its palms, used for the armor's flight stabilization, aswell 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 countain 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 equiped 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 provides suit feedback, tactical analysis and tactical countermeasures. They are even able to analyze Captain America's fight pattern and provide a programmed countermeasure tactic.
