** Rhodey tends to do this frequently, being the OnlySaneMan in the group. In particular, he calls Tony out on his near-homicidal rage in "Seeing Red", pointing out that Tony's willingness to use reverse-engineered and self-built weapons against his enemies, even when those weapons are very assuredly lethal, isn't right. "There's a fine line between you and the people you fight, and right now you're on it, Tony."

* CreateYourOwnVillain: In As expected of a Iron Man series; Stane worked at Stark International for ''years'' before taking control in the wake of Howard Stark's death, and the first thing he did was weaponize every piece of Starktech - both Howard's and ''Tony's'' - he found laying around. All but a handful of the villains Iron Man fights got their hardware from Stark International. Even the Mandarin was just a two-bit crime boss before claiming the second ring from Stane after Howard's death. Capped off when in the span of two episodes, Tony manages to make enemies of [[spoiler:his genius classmate Rhona and her android servants (though that was a long time coming ever since he got to the school), Stane by getting him fired, and Whitney by putting Stane in a coma (by proxy from causing the above)]].


Added DiffLines:

**Deconstructed because Howard Stark's will states that he won't inherit Stark International if he doesn't finish school, because he wants Tony to have the "normal life" he didn't have as a technocrat heir. Not like he knew at the time that Obadiah would be the prime suspect in his murder.
***Reconstructed because Rhodes and Pepper are willing to cover for him as long as he's willing to share the weight.

* ParentalAbandonment: Both of Tony's parents are missing/dead. Howard Stark was lost in a plane crash in the pilot, [[spoiler:though he was actually kidnapped by Gene to help find the rings,]] and Howard's VideoWill seems to suggest his mother * PetTheDog: "Best Served Cold" shows that Obadiah really does care about Whitney on some level, even if he is an asshat, when he hires Blizzard to go to the Arctic to obtain a sample of vibranium, which Tony can use to heal Whitney. Of course, he doesn't go out of his way to show it and treats her to his usual level of douchebaggery in the meantime, but it's the thought that counts.
