Iron Man

Marvel's Iron Man is a fictional character, who appeared in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is an industrialist and ingenious scientist who uses his own wealth to create advanced weaponry and other technologies that he uses in conflicts with other superheroes or villains, often serving as the world's premier superhero.

After being captured and held prisoner by terrorist group The Ten Rings, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark builds a powered suit of armor to escape captivity; subsequently redesigning it into an armored fighting vehicle called "War Machine" - both are colloquially known together as Iron Man-Jack of all trades: Invincible Genius in Battle

Inventive Industrial Scientist Reinvents Himself as Armored Superhero.

The series has been highly acclaimed on its release due to its high production values and focused story line, which depicts Stark as a less ambiguous character whose motives are more clearly defined than in the previous films. The series' first season was nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006 and won two Critics' Choice Television Awards, making it the most-nominated show that year.

Tony Stark is a billionaire industrialist, a brilliant engineer who invented an arc reactor that powered his armor. After an accident causes him to be paralyzed from the chest down, he builds a new armor with which he can walk and fight. He adopts the alter ego of Iron Man, creating advanced weapons and other technologies. In his civilian life, Tony Stark was a weapons manufacturer, the CEO of Stark Industries, and a philanthropist.

When the Ten Rings takes him prisoner, in an attempt to force him to make them weapons, he instead builds a powered armor suit which allows him to escape. This is first hinted at in the post-credit sequence of "Iron Man", where he is seen investigating one of his companies factories to examine an odd piece of equipment. In "Iron Man 2", after being seen as Iron Man by the public while saving them from his own missile barrage meant for Whiplash, he then goes on to fully develop and test his new suit.

In "The Avengers", he begins to use the suit to build a personal defense system, known as Iron Legion, in response for his lack of military experience; Stark also builds his first electromagnetically powered flying platform in the process.

In "Iron Man 3", after struggling with alcoholism and problems with his suit's Extremis technology, Stark becomes depressed after being caught in an attack by the Mandarin. He is later seen undergoing treatment for alcoholism by Happy Hogan and Lucius Fox.

In "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", he joins S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts to protect the U.S. from HYDRA.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, he learns that his father, Howard Stark, was killed by the sentient android Ultron during World War II. In response, he builds a new armor and joins forces with the Avengers to defeat the android, who had subsequently escaped.

In "Spider-Man: Homecoming", after helping Peter Parker to stop Adrian Toomes from selling weapons in Queens, Stark is forced to go on the run again as he is wanted by both S.H.I.E.L.D.
