* BrilliantButLazy: Somewhat. He can create multiple, formidable armors and a life support system ahead of the current time, which he made with extremely limited resources. While he does things with this, he can't be asked to sit through a ceremony made for a friend and ally without falling asleep during the history recap.

* BrilliantButLazy: Somewhat. He can create multiple, formidable armors sure built that arc reactor pretty quickly once he needed it and a life support system ahead was said by Obadiah Stane to be more of an "idea man". He's more hard-working but quite hedonistic. Parodied in a scene in the current time, which he made with extremely limited resources. While he does things with this, he can't be asked to sit through a ceremony made for a friend and ally without falling asleep during Avengers, where Tony finds the history recap.idea of turning to look around a room exhausting.



* Foil: To Steve Rogers, playing the selfish cynic to Steve's old-fashioned idealist.



* GoodIsNotNice: He's a playboy, a glory hound and an irresponsible narcissist who would rather shift the blame onto someone else.



* ParentalAbandonment: Tony took over Stark Enterprises at 21 when his parents were killed in a car crash.

Tony returned back to Earth just in time to have his morality inverted during ''ComicBook/{{AXIS}}'', setting up the nine-issue maxi series ''Superior Iron Man'' which took him to San Francisco in a silver Symbiote suit, [[TookALevelInJerkAss acting all kinds of jerk-ish]]. He also served as a prominent figure in ''ComicBook/JonathanHickmansAvengers'', serving simultaneously as a member of the Avengers and Illuminati to save the world from colliding into [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel another universe]] --- and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt failed]]. This brings us to ''[[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 Secret Wars]]'', which sees the "Armor Wars" story revisited --set in the Technopolis domain-- depicting a reality in which wearing an armored suit became mandatory for all citizens.

** Also, in a BadFuture brought about by the horrible attempts to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong in the ''[[Comicbook/AgeOfUltron Age of Ultron]]'' storyline, Tony Stark is an enfeebled dictator of the USA, [[DarkLordOnLifeSupport sustained by the life-support his suit grants]] and commander of the Defenders against the demonic forces of Morgan le Fay, in a literal war between magic and science over New York City. Unfortunately, Tony, and therefore science, is fighting a losing battle, although it is implied were [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] still around, the odds would have been evened. Hell, it's Pym's death [[ForWantOfANail that started events]] leading to the war in the first place. [[hottip: *: Wolverine and Sue Richards went back in time to stop Pym from creating Ultron and prevent Ultron's takeover of the world. Wolverine's "solution" to the problem was to kill him before he gets the chance, leading to the aforementioned Defenders vs Morgan le Fay timeline.]]

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Some villains have gone back and forth between being a foe of IM or being a foe of someone else; Scarecrow, a former circus acrobat originally appeared as a foe of IM back in the 60s, but later tussled a bit with Captain America and the Falcon, and later became a major enemy of ComicBook/GhostRider. The Mandarin branched out a bit in the 60s, attempting to control the Hulk, fighting Captain America, the Inhumans, and was the villain of the first ''Avengers'' annual (with various other ''Avengers''-related villains- ComicBook/TheEnchantress and Skurge, the original Power Man, the Swordsman, and Living Laser- working for him). Speaking of Living Laser, he eventually became a regular villain for IM, despite his original appearances in ''The Avengers'' as having been a StalkerWithACrush on The Wasp. Grey Garogyle had two notable encounters with Shellhead- once in the late 60s, and again in the mid 80s- despite being primarily a Thor villain.

* NonIndicativeName: When was the last time the Hulkbuster armor managed to bust Hulk?

* NonIndicativeName: When NonIndicativeName:
**Only Iron Man's earlier armos were mostly made of iron. Played with in ''Unbeatable Squirrel Girl'' #2 when the title heroine infiltrates Stark Tower and overhears two employees:
-->"Look, all I'm saying is, his suits aren't even made out of iron anymore. Boss should be calling himself Ceramically-Enhanced Alloy Man while he's in San Fran."

** As demonstrated in 'Iron Man' v6, #23-26, when Tony travels to the realm of the Dark Elves to recover four of the Mandarin's rings, then in the possession of Malekith the Accursed; the vicious hordes of the Dark Elves set out to hunt him in their forests... He escapes... and with the rings... and from then on, Dark Elf children who are misbehaving to their elders are chided with "You better behave, or the Iron Man will come to get you!"

** Also inverted in the ''Invincible Iron Man'' series. Stark agrees to an interview with a journalist based on (IntrepidReporter) John Pilger, who wants to understand why Tony does what he does (and actually intends to peg him as a heartless profiteer of war). After being constantly railroaded by the interview, Stark cuts off the documentarian and admits yes, he creates weapons of war for use by the United States government, but goes on to explain that every microchip he manufactured for use in American smart-bombs has since being widely developed for civilian purposes; the technology itself isn't inherently 'good' or 'bad'. In short, he regards the development of weapons as an unfortunate, but necessary evil that finances his humanitarian projects.
