It's unknown how Tony will make it out of ''Secret Wars'', though he's slated to have a new ongoing in the form of a second ''Invincible Iron Man'' volume (written by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis), on tap for an ambitious new slate of titles during the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel rebranding in late 2015.

It's unknown how Tony will make it out of After ''Secret Wars'', though he's slated to have a new ongoing in the form of Tony returns for a second ''Invincible Iron Man'' volume (written by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis), on tap with a brand new suit of armor (of course), with Mary Jane Watson taking over Pepper Potts' job, Tony constantly running into Doctor Doom (who looks perfectly normal now), and has a gang of cyber ninjas after him. A second title, ''International Iron Man'', has Tony running into an old girlfriend who is now a crime boss who wants to kill him, all while he's trying to find out who his biological parents are.

Following the event ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'', Tony will put away his suit in order
for an ambitious a new slate hero to take over--15-year old Riri Williams, an African-American girl who built her own suit of titles during armor in her dorm room at {{MIT}}. Another title, ''Infamous Iron Man'', sees Doctor Doom also putting on the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel rebranding in late 2015.

Iron Man, during the [[BaseBreaker controversial]] ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' story-line, chose to champion the Superhero Registration Act, which put him at odds with his long time friend and ally Captain America/Steve Rogers and resulted in a war between Stark's pro-registration heroes and Cap's anti-registration heroes. Although Stark championed Registration with good intentions (he insists it was to protect his fellow heroes from possibly being eradicated by the government following a superhero/villain related tragedy that resulted in countless civilian deaths), he did a number of questionable and downright unpleasant things to get it in place (see below). Stark's support of Superhero Registration would ultimately come back to bite him in the ass in ''Secret Invasion''.

* EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture: The Superior Iron Man armor.



** Played classically straight during 'Avengers/ X-Men: Axis' when his alignment was inverted by a spell cast by Doctor Doom and the Scarlet Witch. However, he was the only formerly heroic villain who designed the means to ''stay'' a villain in case the spell was reversed - which was exactly what happened. This is how he became the Superior Iron Man.

In non-comic media, a movie based on the character, ''Film/IronMan'', was released in May 2008 with Creator/RobertDowneyJr in the title role. It did well at the box office, and as of June 2008 had a 94% approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes, making it the best-received movie of the year, tying with ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. This movie was followed by two sequels and other appearances in the MarvelCinematicUniverse. Prior to the movies, Iron Man had animated TV series in 1966 and 1994; for information on those, see [[WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperHeroes here]] and [[WesternAnimation/IronMan here]]. In the wake of the movies, ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a cartoon that takes another approach to the mythos by having Tony and his friends be teenagers. Additionally, there is a 2011 [[Anime/IronMan anime]] by Creator/{{Madhouse}}, well-received by fans in concept partly on the basis that 1) the Japanese know Mecha, and Iron Man has a [[PoweredArmor Mecha Suit]], and 2) it wouldn't be that far off the mark for the character to have adventures in Japan, since he's a businessman with corporate branches and rivals all over the world.[[note]]In fact, his arch enemy is called The Mandarin and is a descendant of Genghis Khan. Not Japanese, but at least geographically close.[[/note]] The series led to ''Anime/IronManRiseOfTechnovore'', an Anime film made to promote the release of ''Film/IronMan3''. The character has also appeared in both ''WesternAnimation/UltimateAvengers'' films as well as the prequel, ''WesternAnimation/TheInvincibleIronMan''. Iron Man featured in yet another animated feature in 2013, this time a team-up with Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk called ''WesternAnimation/IronManAndHulkHeroesUnited''.

* BreakoutCharacter: He was originally considered a B-list hero compared to the likes of SpiderMan and ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, but after the success of his [[Film/IronMan1 first film]] and [[Film/IronMan subsequent sequels]], he has now eclipsed both of them in popularity and became Marvel's new mascot.

** In the first arc of ''Mighty Avengers'' (vol.1), his Extremis-altered biology is used as an entrance point by an artificial intelligence... specifically, Ultron. Not satisfied with that, Ultron immediately used Tony's [[Transhuman posthuman]] abilities to transform his body... into an identical copy of Janet Pym (aka the Wasp, whom Ultron has had a serious hangup with for decades...).
