Team up Wolverine and Iron Man in Marvel Strike Force on Android
Iron Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character made his first appearance in Tales of Suspense 39 cover dated March , and received his own title in Iron Man 1 May A wealthy American business magnate , playboy , and ingenious scientist , Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping.
When his captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction , he instead creates a mechanized suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. Later, Stark develops his suit, adding weapons and other technological devices he designed through his company, Stark Industries. He uses the suit and successive versions to protect the world as Iron Man.
Although at first concealing his true identity, Stark eventually declared that he was, in fact, Iron Man in a public announcement. Initially, Iron Man was a vehicle for Stan Lee to explore Cold War themes, particularly the role of American technology and industry in the fight against communism. Subsequent re-imaginings of Iron Man have transitioned from Cold War motifs to contemporary matters of the time. Throughout most of the character's publication history, Iron Man has been a founding member of the superhero team the Avengers and has been featured in several incarnations of his own various comic book series.
Iron Man has been adapted for several animated TV shows and films. I think I gave myself a dare. It was the height of the Cold War. The readers, the young readers, if there was one thing they hated, it was war, it was the military So I got a hero who represented that to the hundredth degree. He was a weapons manufacturer, he was providing weapons for the Army, he was rich, he was an industrialist I thought it would be fun to take the kind of character that nobody would like, none of our readers would like, and shove him down their throats and make them like him And he became very popular.
He set out to make the new character a wealthy, glamorous ladies' man, but one with a secret that would plague and torment him as well. Stan made it very much an in-your-face wound, you know, his heart was broken, you know, literally broken. But there's a metaphor going on there. And that's, I think, what made that character interesting. He was an inventor, an adventurer, a multi-billionaire, a ladies' man and finally a nutcase.
While Lee intended to write the story himself,  a minor deadline emergency eventually forced him to hand over the premiere issue to Lieber, who fleshed out the story. The covers were always done first. The character's original costume was a bulky gray armored suit, replaced by a golden version in the second story issue 40, April It was redesigned as sleeker, red-and-golden armor in issue 48 Dec. As Heck recalled in , "[T]he second costume, the red and yellow one, was designed by Steve Ditko.
I found it easier than drawing that bulky old thing. The earlier design, the robot-looking one, was more Kirbyish. In his premiere, Iron Man was an anti-communist hero, defeating various Vietnamese agents. Lee later regretted this early focus. From issue 59 Nov. Lee and Heck introduced several adversaries for the character including the Mandarin in issue 50 Feb.
Lee said that "of all the comic books we published at Marvel, we got more fan mail for Iron Man from women, from females, than any other title We didn't get much fan mail from girls, but whenever we did, the letter was usually addressed to Iron Man. The character has since appeared in every subsequent volume of the series. Writers have updated the war and locale in which Stark is injured. In the original story, it was the Vietnam War. In the s, it was updated to be the first Gulf War ,  and in the s updated again to be the war in Afghanistan.
Stark's time with the Asian Nobel Prize -winning scientist Ho Yinsen is consistent through nearly all incarnations of the Iron Man origin, depicting Stark and Yinsen building the original armor together. Where The Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk respectively focused on American domestic and government responses to the Communist threat, Iron Man explored industry's role in the struggle.
Tony Stark's real-life model, Howard Hughes , was a significant defense contractor who developed new weapons technologies. Hughes was an icon both of American individualism and of the burdens of fame. Where earlier decades had seen important technological innovations come from famous individuals e.
As a result, little room remained for the inventor who wanted credit for, and creative and economic control over, their own creations. Issues of entrepreneurial autonomy, government supervision of research, and ultimate loyalty figured prominently in early Iron Man stories—the same issues affecting American scientists and engineers of that era.
This blow is symbolized by his chest wound, inflicted at the moment he is forced to invent things for the purposes of others, instead of just himself. To Genter, Stark's transformation into Iron Man represents Stark's effort to reclaim his autonomy, and thus his manhood. The character's pursuit of women in bed or in battle, writes Genter, represents another aspect of this effort. The pattern finds parallels in other works of s popular fiction by authors such as " Ian Fleming creator of James Bond , Mickey Spillane Mike Hammer , and Norman Mailer , who made unregulated sexuality a form of authenticity.
This initial series ended with issue Sept. This volume took place in a parallel universe  and ran 13 issues Nov. Issue 41 June was additionally numbered , reflecting the start of dual numbering starting from the premiere issue of volume one in The final issue was dual-numbered as On the final three issues, the cover logo was overwritten by "War Machine, Weapon of S. The Invincible Iron Man vol.
A boy genius, he enters MIT at the age of 15 to study engineering and later receives master's degrees in engineering and physics. After his parents are killed in a car accident, he inherits his father's company. Stark is injured by a booby trap and captured by enemy forces led by Wong-Chu. Wong-Chu orders Stark to build weapons, but Stark's injuries are dire and shrapnel is moving towards his heart. His fellow prisoner, Ho Yinsen , a Nobel Prize -winning physicist whose work Stark had greatly admired during college, constructs a magnetic chest plate to keep the shrapnel from reaching Stark's heart.
In secret, Stark and Yinsen use the workshop to design and construct a suit of powered armor , which Stark uses to escape. During the escape attempt, Yinsen sacrifices his life to save Stark's by distracting the enemy as Stark recharges.
Stark takes revenge on his kidnappers and rejoins the American forces, on his way meeting a wounded American Marine fighter pilot, James "Rhodey" Rhodes. Back home, Stark discovers that the shrapnel fragment lodged in his chest cannot be removed without killing him, and he is forced to wear the armor's chestplate beneath his clothes to act as a regulator for his heart.
He must recharge the chestplate every day or else risk the shrapnel killing him. The cover story that Stark tells the news media and general public is that Iron Man is his robotic personal bodyguard , and corporate mascot.
To that end, Iron Man fights threats to his company e. No one suspects Stark of being Iron Man, as he cultivates a strong public image of being a rich playboy and industrialist. Two notable members of the series' supporting cast, at this point, are his personal chauffeur Harold "Happy" Hogan , and secretary Virginia "Pepper" Potts —to both of whom he eventually reveals his dual identity.
Meanwhile, James Rhodes finds his own niche as Stark's personal pilot, ultimately revealing himself to be a man of extraordinary skill and daring in his own right. The series took an anti-Communist stance in its early years, which was softened as public and therefore, presumably, reader opposition rose to the Vietnam War.
Stark shows himself to be occasionally arrogant, and willing to act unethically in order to 'let the ends justify the means'. Stark uses his vast personal fortune not only to outfit his own armor, but also to develop weapons for S.
Eventually, Stark's heart condition is resolved with an artificial heart transplant. Stark expands on his armor designs and begins to build his arsenal of specialized armors for particular situations such as for space travel  and stealth.
At the same time, it is revealed that several minor supervillains armed with advanced weapons who had bedeviled Stark throughout his superhero career are in fact in the employ of Stark's business rival, Justin Hammer , who begins to plague Stark more directly.
Some time later, a ruthless rival, Obadiah Stane , manipulates Stark emotionally into a serious relapse. As a result, Stark loses control of Stark International to Stane, becomes a homeless alcoholic vagrant and gives up his armored identity to Rhodes, who becomes the new Iron Man. Eventually, Stark recovers and joins a new startup, Circuits Maximus. Stark concentrates on new technological designs, including building a new set of armor as part of his recuperative therapy.
Rhodes continues to act as Iron Man but steadily grows more aggressive and paranoid, due to the armor not having been calibrated properly for his use. Eventually Rhodes goes on a rampage, and Stark has to don a replica of his original armor to stop him.
Fully recovered, Stark confronts Stane who has himself designed armor based on designs seized along with Stark International, dubbing himself the 'Iron Monger'. Defeated in battle, Stane, rather than give Stark the satisfaction of taking him to trial, commits suicide.
In an attempt to stop other people from misusing his designs, Stark goes about disabling other armored heroes and villains who are using suits based on the Iron Man technology, the designs of which were stolen by his enemy Spymaster. His quest to destroy the stolen technology—originally called "Stark Wars" but is more commonly known as the " Armor Wars "—severely hurts his reputation as Iron Man.
After attacking and disabling a series of minor villains such as Stilt-Man , he attacks and defeats the government operative known as Stingray. The situation worsens when Stark realizes that Stingray's armor does not incorporate any of his designs. He publicly "fires" Iron Man while covertly pursuing his agenda. He uses the cover story of wanting to help disable the rogue Iron Man to infiltrate and disable the armor of the S.
This leads the United States government to declare Iron Man a danger and an outlaw, and severely sours Stark's relationship with Steve Rogers Captain America , who was in his "Captain" persona at the time. Iron Man travels to Russia where he inadvertently causes the death of the Soviet Titanium Man during a fight. Returning to the U. Unable to defeat him head on, Stark fakes Iron Man's demise,  intending to retire the suit permanently.
When Firepower goes rogue, Stark creates a new suit, claiming a new person is in the armor. Soon after, Stark is nearly killed by Kathy Dare, a mentally unbalanced former lover. She shoots him dead center in his torso which injures his spine, paralyzing him.
If you had the required five S. To get him higher, you would have needed those S. With Iron Man now unlocked for many as a five-star an assuming you rank up his gear Gear Tier to at least Tier 9 , the realization of an all-Avengers team can now be a reality for a lot of players.
But now, faced with an imminent, deadly threat unlike any he has ever encountered, Stark will be forced to call upon some familiar faces as well as do battle alongside some new allies. The reduction to Power manipulation affects the amount of Power subtracted from Iron Man. If you get up close and personal, his Light 1 Attack will trigger the Stun from Parry. Special 1: Zero-point Blasts — Tapping into an esoteric energy source, the suit morphs to fire debilitating blasts. Special 2: Micro-missile Array — Nanoparticles reform into wings that rain down repeated missile strikes.
The entire Iron Man MCU timeline finally explained
Still, Iron Man changed the game, showing the potential of a shared cinematic universe built on the back of genius jerk who built a suit of armor in a cave out of a box of scrap. But what happened in between? D and Agent Carter , it's easy to lose track of where Iron Man fits into everything. Not to worry; we're bringing up the holographic schematics and outlining how Tony Stark goes from a genius weapons designer with no heart to Iron Man, a self-sacrificing superhero with a heart of palladium. Before we talk about Tony Stark, we need to talk about his father Howard. Beyond the elder Stark's role in shaping his son's mindset and intellect, Howard Stark also knew and interacted with a decent chunk of the Marvel Cinematic Universe himself. In the s, Howard Stark hits the world stage as a genius industrialist who goes on to found Stark Industries. That leads him to Professor Erskine, which, in turn, leads him to meeting Steve Rogers, the first and only true success of Project Rebirth. As "the Army's number one weapons contractor," Howard is tasked with building equipment for Steve Rogers, which, of course, includes the Captain's famous vibranium shield. The Strategic Scientific Reserve is folded in as S.
