You know who I am.


The original tortured genius, Tony followed in his father's footsteps, working as the primary defense contractor for the United States until he took some shrapnel to the heart and spent a few weeks on holiday in the Middle East.

When he returned, he was Iron Man. And he was good at that, too.

Now, having both literally and proverbially battled many of his own demons, he's trying to turn over a new leaf. He's precariously close to letting Pepper make an honest woman out of him. He doesn't make fun of Happy nearly as often as he used to. And he never, ever stops building suits.


  • Notable IC events.


  • "Memorable quotes!"


  • Interesting miscellany.


  • The Mark I thru IV platforms are all technically operational, but have been retired as Tony develops newer and more complex technologies.
  • The Mark V was designed with portability in mind. It fits in a suitcase and automatically deploys when activated. Tony rarely leaves home without it. Compared to other versions, this platform has relatively limited defensive and offensive capabilities, but excellent speed and maneuverability.
  • The Mark VI is a working prototype, but barely. Still, Tony insists on what he calls "rigorous field testing." Powered by a Vibranium core, it's capable of far greater energy output than previous platforms. In short, it hits harder, flies faster, and carries much bigger guns. In addition to the standard armaments found on the Mark IV, it has a more advanced targeting system, additional rocket pods with higher payloads, the patented Stark "Turn and Burn" offensive laser, and the Modular Missile Launcher.
  • Although the Mark VI is barely operational, work has already begun on the Mark VII and VIII platforms.


  • Even without his suit, Tony is no mere mortal. His charm alone is so dangerous that it's registered as a weapon in several countries. He's too intelligent for anyone's tastes, including his own. Physically, he's no different from any other man in his thirties who drinks too much and still engages in regular, rigorous physical activity. Except for the whole arc reactor thing, of course.
  • When inside one of his "high tech prosthetic devices" his physical attributes are greatly magnified. While different suits boast different features, even the weakest is able to lift, carry, and throw several tons with relative ease. All are nearly immune to any weapon that isn't classified as artillery or heavy ordinance. They all fly, and as a result, all have palm-mounted repulsor beams. All of his suits also have comprehensive heads-up displays and a direct link to JARVIS, who monitors and maintains various functions while the armor is in use.
