* CapitalismIsBad: The comics play with this on some occasions. StanLee and Larry Lieber noticed that all the businessmen in the Marvel Universe, and for that matter comics in general, were those of the CorruptCorporateExecutive type, and thus decided to create a superhero who averted this trope in the form of Tony Stark (AKA Iron-Man) to demonstrate that [[DarkIsNotEvil Capitalism was not inherently evil]]. Some of the villains that he faces, like Obadiah Stane, lack any of Stark's integrity and [[WarForFunAndProfit take advantage of armed conflicts to make a profit]]. Thus the beneficial and detrimental effects of Capitalism can be played up in certain storylines.

* EscapedFromHell: In ''Legacy of Doom'', SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom betrays Tony and traps him in [[{{Hell}} Mephisto's Realm]], where Mephisto declares that Tony will be trapped there '''''[[LargeHam FOREVER]]!''''' Tony's response to this is to fight off both the minions of Hell and [[ShapeShifterGuiltTrip a demonic apparition of his father]], and then use the power of [[ScienceHero technology]] to escape. All in the span of about thirty minutes, which may or may not set some sort of record where {{Badass Normal}}s are concerned.

** The "Knightmare" storylines with DoctorDoom, involving TimeTravel and the Arthurian legends, has Tony having to deal with magic, much to his frustration. When the two are brought to the year 2093 in the second story, Tony admits magic can have its benefits when he wields Excalibur and the sword is able to magically restore his armor.

** In ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' v2 #113, Tony became Sorcerer Supreme -- ''but still used his armor''. The issue climaxed with Stark beating and humiliating the Dread Dormammu ''singlehandedly''. This version of Tony is like a heroic version of DoctorDoom, except better.

* UltimateJobSecurity: Tony won't fire anyone without good cause, but he ''will'' let the axe fall if he feels a major employee's performance isn't up to snuff. After the Armor Wars storyline, he fired the head of his legal department for repeatedly screwing up Tony's legal attempts to protect his technology. Another time, he immediately drop kicks an executive for making a very profitable technology sale to DoctorDoom, a big time international crime no-no.

** Even [[SilverAge early on]], he refused to trust his closest friends with his secrets until his back was against the wall, not because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies they would be endangered]], but because he believed no one else was equal to the responsibility.

** Stark is smarter than the average FlatEarthAtheist, acknowledging that Comicbook/DoctorStrange and other magical characters are doing ''something'' beyond his understanding, but he finds magic and its defiance of physical laws, even those of a superhero universe, profoundly irritating and uncomfortable. This has had some negative consequences, as [[spoiler:his taking a sample of [[TheMightyThor Thor]]'s DNA in an attempt to figure out how his "godly" powers work resulted years later in ''Civil War'''s Thor clone, who ended up killing one of Tony's friends on the other side of the war.]]
