Tony Stark was born the son of billionaire industrialist Howard Stark and his wife Maria. An only child, young Tony was exceptionally intelligent building his first motherboard at just four years old and his first engine at seven. During his younger years his father was usually absent, appearing cold to the young boy who never heard that his father loved him or even liked him. At fourteen years old he won the fouth annual MIT robot design reward and graduated MIT at the age of Seventeen. At twenty-one years old, both his mother and father would be killed in a car accident and a few short months later, Tony took over the role of CEO at Stark Industries.

For years Tony Stark would lead his company to entirely new levels of success, inventing highly advanced weapons for the US military, advanced robotics and a number of other technological marvels. Several years later, Stark would find himself captured and gravely injured by the terrorist organization known as the Ten Rings during a weapons demonstration in Afghanistan. His life was saved by Dr. Ho Yinsin who implanted an electromagnet in his chest to prevent shrapnel from burrowing into Tony's heart. Held captive in a cave until he built Jericho missiles for the terrorists, Tony Stark instead built a miniaturized Arc Reactor and used it to power the magnet in his chest and serve as a power source for his greatest weapon yet, the Iron Man armor Mark I.

Using his new armored weapon, Tony freed himself from the terrorists but lost his friend Ho Yinsen in the attempt. Upon his return to the United States, Tony would perfect his Iron Man Armor design, creating the Mark II and Mark III suits. After discovering that his business partner Obidiah Stane had been double dealing under the table, selling Stark weapons to friends and enemies alike, he set about stopping Stane, resulting in a battle that would see Stane perish and the proclamation to the world that Tony Stark was Iron Man. In the coming years, Tony would prevent many such enemies, including Ivan Vanko at the Stark Expo in 2010.

Stark would soon become a founding member of SHIELD's Rapid Response team known as the Avengers, made up of himself, Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, Thor Odinson, Bruce Banner and Clint Barton. Together the team would thwart Thor's brother Loki from enslaving humanity, defeating him at the Battle of New York against the Chitauri army, Tony would play a key role in the battle, being the first to open fire on the enemy and effectively ending the battle by guiding a Nuclear missile to the Chitauri mother ship. Not long after, having suffered severe PTSD from the battle, Tony would soon combat a new threat, saving the President of the United States from Aldrich Killian.

After the fall of SHIELD, Tony and the Avengers would be a key component in significantly reducing the threat from HYDRA, recovering Loki's scepter. While studying the scepter, Tony Stark and Bruce Banner would accidentally create Ultron, an AI bent on Human Extinction. Once more, the Avengers would be called to save the world, adding three more members to their ranks in Wanda and Pietro Maximoff and the VIsion. Together, they would defeat Ultron for good in the Battle for Sokovia, but the battle itself would lead to a call for Superhuman Registration, a cause that Tony felt they had no other choice to back especially after the bombing of the UN.

The Superhuman Registration Act would prove to be the undoing of the Avenger's splitting them down the middle with Captain America leading the Anti-Registration forces while Tony lead the Pro-Registration forces. While Tony initially believed in the need for registration, things started to change when the actions of Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross came off as strange to him. Using methods available to him, he began to investigate Ross's dealings and found a lot that was not adding up leading Tony to believe Ross was not who he appeared to be.

With Ross's decision to go in force to the Xavier Institute to force registration on all the students, regardless of age. Tony would decide to help Steve Rogers at the Battle by fighting of the Sentinels and saving as many as they could. Before the Battle, Tony would make preparations to go into hiding and after the Battle, Tony would destroy his own tower and go into hiding attempting to uncover the mystery of just what was going on and what it would mean for the world.

While seen as an egocentric playboy by practically everyone, Tony Stark is deeper than meets the eye. While in his younger years he was arrogant, callus and hedonistic, Tony does care about those close to him. While prone to causing problems, he is just as quick to make up for the mistakes he causes and fix the problems he may have created which is the driving reason for him to become a superhero, to fix the problems his neglect had given birth to.

While a classic playboy who's money, power, brilliance and charm can get him any man, Tony exhibits loneliness, a fact illustrated to him by his friend Ho Yinsen. After freeing himself from the Ten Rings and seeing what his weapons in the wrong hands were capable of, decided to stop producing weapons and change the entire make up of his company. In his heart, he is only trying to help those in need even if his ideas end up backfiring on him.

Tony is very pragmatic, having shown a proclivity for taking the easiest most efficient solution to solving problems which has put him at odds with the other Avengers. At the end of the day though, Tony is a reliable and loyal friend and teammate, willing to sacrifice to protect others and going out of his way to make sure his teammates have the best equipment to complete their job. When shown his greatest fear, losing his friends and having to carry on a lone, it encouraged Tony to seek new ways of protecting those around him. His paranoia and fear can some times get the better of him.

With everything that has happened, he has developed into a more responsible, serious and hardened man despite his mischievous nature.

Skills and Powers

  • Armor Systems - His armor is provided remote assistance from his AI FRIDAY who manages the suits systems at Tony's command. The systems include a holographic heads up display for navigation, power level, armor status, weapons systems, vital signs with cellphone and computer connections in the helmet, and a built-in loudspeaker.

Sample Post
Normally, it was impossible to do this kind of thing. Tony Stark, THE Tony Stark sitting outside at a table at a sidewalk cafe. Of course he was going to have people come up to him, ask him if he was Tony Stark or Iron Man. Usually he'd mess with people, tell them he got that sort of thing all the time. Most didn't believe him, but he didn't tend to pay much attention to it. He was just going to enjoy his coffee and the gorgeous day. Try as he might, when a few kids came his way, he just couldn't resist making their day and giving out an autograph or too. He was nice like that.

Reaching for his cup, he brought it to his lips and sipped at the hot liquid. He always did love coffee, but before he could even put the cup down he caught something out of the corner of his eye. A middle aged man, pale of skin with sunken eyes wearing a leather jacket had quickly shuffled by, grabbing a woman's purse before taking off down the street before he could be caught. Unfortunately for him, he decided to walk by a cafe where Iron Man just happened to be relaxing at. With a bit of a sigh he reached his hand up and tapped the side of his sunglasses, activating the interface for his suit.

In mere seconds the Iron Man armor came down off the roof of the building where he had perched it and it swooped in with a roar of the thrusters and he directed the arm of the armor to grab the man by the back of his jacket and pull him back to the cafe. Finishing off his coffee, he stood up from his chair and walked over to the armor waiting for him, delinquent in hand. "Bad day for you, friend," he said taking hold of the purse and sliding it to the woman it had been stolen from. "Now then, let's find you a cell for you. Perhaps a time out will do you good."
