[[caption-width-right:320:]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Adrian Petriw

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl
* BerserkButton: He has no mother, has lost his father, and as such is extremely protective of his friends, who he considers his adoptive family. Trying to hurt them has resulted in the normally calm genius outright trying to KILL the people responsible, and you'd better believe he can do it.
** People stealing his tech and in general using tech for evil also pisses him off. And don't even think about making any wisecracks about his father.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Gene's Veronica.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's sweet, innocent, and oblivious... and he will snap hard if you mess with his friends. Nor will he take kindly to being manipulated.
* ChildProdigy
* ClearMyName: In "Masquerade" and "Chasing Ghosts", for his alter ego and himself, respectively.
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:Until he turns out to be alive.]]
* GadgeteerGenius
* GeniusDitz
* GreenEyedMonster: He's jealous of Pepper's friendship with Gene.
* TheHero
* HeroicBSOD
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Seemingly with Pepper.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Rhodey and, to a lesser degree, Gene.
* KidAnova: Tony tries and fails to charm Whitney at one point, proving that this Tony Stark ''may'' not be a playboy after all.
* KidHero: For a certain definition of kid.
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Don't say anything bad about Howard or imply he did anything less than perfect in front of Tony.
* NotSoDifferent: He and Gene both have missing murdered parents, a lot of responsibilities, the same tendency to walk the line between hero and villain, and have a secret identity.
** He also has this with Black Panther for pretty much the same reasons, Rhodey even says that '''T''''Challa ''is'' '''T'''ony. Rhodey also points out the similarity between Tony and Dr. Doom (he seems to like doing this) so Gene and Doom are like each other and Tony/T'Challa... they should start a support group.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense
* ScienceHero
* SelfMadeOrphan: In one episode a JerkAss classmate implies that Tony did this to his father because of their (actually friendly and good-spirited) competition to one-up each other's inventions. It's completely false and Tony [[BerserkButton does not take it well at all]].
* SuperStrength: [[spoiler:With his Extremis upgrade, Tony can BearHug both Pepper ''and'' Rhodey hard enough to leave Rhodey short of breath.]]
* SurvivorGuilt: Implied.
* {{Technopath}}: [[spoiler:Thanks to Extremis.]]
* TeenGenius
* TookALevelInBadass: Every time he gets new armor.
* {{Transhuman}}: [[spoiler:After injecting himself with Extremis, his body is enhanced to superhuman levels, and he gets technopathy to boot.]]
* UnstoppableRage: Combines it with doses of TranquilFury.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
* WouldntHitAGirl

[[caption-width-right:324:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Daniel Bacon

* AlliterativeName: When using his nickname.
* BashBrothers: With Tony once he gets the War Machine armor.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: especially demonstrated [[spoiler:in the season 1 finale with his attitude toward Xin Zhang.]]
--->'''James''': I am going to ask one more time: Where. Are. They?
* BigDamnHeroes: In "Tales of Suspense".
* BlackBestFriend
* BrownEyes
* DisappearedDad: States in one episode that his dad is in the Navy, and he's stationed oversees. Turns out they're extending his tour of duty, so we probably won't see him for a little while longer, if at all.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Tony.
* MissionControl
* OnlySaneMan: Generally the most reasonable and down to Earth person in any scene he's in.
** His best friends are a MadScientist and a GenkiGirl, so he occasionally comes off as ''literally'' being the sane one, and he is fully aware of it.
--->[[LampshadeHanging "Am I the only sane person here?!"]]
* SecretKeeper
* TeamMom: Lampshaded via his nickname.
* TopHeavyGuy: The War Machine armor, with its vast and primarily shoulder-mounted armament.
* WhatTheHellHero: Calls Tony out on his actions repeatedly, going so far as to tell Tony he's barely any better than the villains he's fighting in ''Seeing Red''.

!!Patricia "Pepper" Potts/[[spoiler:Rescue]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AnnaCummer

* [[spoiler:ActionGirl: gradually becomes this in the end of season 2, first by using the Stealth armor, and then as Rescue.]]
* Adorkable
* AlliterativeName
* AllWomenLoveShoes: She invokes this trope in Iron Man 2099 when she goes giddy over all the shoes in the store. Even claiming it's an addiction. Despite this however [[LimitedWardrobe she is always wearing the same pair of sneakers]].
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Whitney's Veronica.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She mentions offhand to Gene that she got a guy deported for espionage. When the [[spoiler:armor designs are stolen and sold to Stane and Hammer, Pepper suggests Tony steal them back or trash their companies trying amidst various angry growls]].
* BreathlessNonSequitur: She gets in quite a few of these during her ramblings.
* BrownEyes
* ClingyJealousGirl
* CompressedVice: Has issues with mutants, which is a little strange considering how nice she was to the Hulk. Backpedals by the end of the episode when she says she only dislikes "evil mutants."
* DamselInDistress: And she is tired of it.
* DistressBall: She holds this most of the time. Occasionally she'll pass it to Rhodey and be competent for an episode, but the next episode we're right back to her being too dense to do anything but sit dumbly in the middle of a room where two factions of the Chinese mafia are duking it out.
* FauxActionGirl: As much as she wants to be a member of SHIELD, she has a long way to go, especially compared to [[ActionGirl Whitney]].
** In the ultimate irony of ironies, [[spoiler: Pepper ends up with armor of her own, finally allowing her to be a legitimate fighter...yet Whitney, in a twisted way, is the one who ends up as "a member of SHIELD".]]
* FeetFirstIntroduction
* FieryRedhead
* GenkiGirl
* GirlNextDoor
* GreenEyedMonster: Is jealous of Tony's friendship with Whitney.
* InvisibilityCloak: When she briefly dons the Stealth armor and [[spoiler:when she obtains the Rescue armor]]. Unfortunately, the effect is somewhat defeated, as Mandarin points out, by her MotorMouth habit.
* IWantMyJetpack: Wants to join SHIELD for a jetpack. In the second season, she begs Tony for her own suit of armor [[spoiler:and finally obtains the Rescue armor near the end of it.]]
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: She does this over Tony, Gene, ''and'' SHIELD.
* TheLadette: Compared to Whitney; she wears her hair short, she always wears neckties, has an admitted love of guns and explosions and wants to be a secret agent or police officer when she grows up. Her first date with Happy also has her display [[BigEater surprisingly gluttonous habits]], and she admits she's also capable of [[{{Gasshole}} belching the 50 states of America and the alphabet from A-Z]]. [[RuleOfFunny One after the other in a single burp]].
* TheLoad: She gets captured and rescued by Tony with surprising regularity, except for those occasions where Gene rescues her. She has an incredible knack for making bad situations worse and does very little to help Tony out, though to her credit she ''does'' try. Her efforts usually result in Tony [[StopHelpingMe yelling at her]]. However she is fully aware that she is The Load, which is why she wants a PowerArmor of her own so she can be a more proactive member of the team. So when she finally does get her power armor, she shows full well she is no longer The Load.
* MissingMom
* MissionControl
* MotorMouth
* NaiveEverygirl
* PurpleIsPowerful: [[spoiler: Her Rescue armor heavily incorporates her favorite color]].
* {{Red Headed Hero}}ine

* SkewedPriorities
* SkirtOverSlacks
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Whitney's girly girl.

[[caption-width-right:300:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Kristie Marsden

Daughter of Obidiah Stane and friend of Tony Stark

* ActionGirl
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Pepper's Betty.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: She came off as this in her first couple appearances before becoming Madame Masque and revealing her more tormented side.
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler:The main reason she's a threat as Madame Masque, aside from Tony's reluctance to fight her, is because she does whatever she can to win.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Whitney Stane is a composite of Whitney Frost (as Madame Masque) and Ezekiel Stane (as Obadiah Stane's child [[spoiler:and a user of the Iron Monger armor]])
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: A possible interpretation of her interest in Tony. Not present with Rhodey.
* DemotedToExtra: In the second season.
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: As of "Iron Monger Lives", she's back as Madame Masque and is now completely obsessed with ruining Tony's life, though only because the insanity-causing mask she's wearing is ''very'' selective about which memories it returned to her.]]
* HiddenDepths
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Tony vs. Madame Masque, [[spoiler: especially in "Iron Monger Lives", where Tony says that "the real Whitney" is still there and fighting against Madame Masque in her own subconcious.]]
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini: Does villainous stuff in her last appearance and escapes prison in the end by disgusing herself as a SHIELD agent, presumably staying in SHIELD undercover! Though to be fair, she's the victim of a mask that makes you crazy and Tony even points out "the real Whitney" is subconsciously fighting against it, making it questionable if she really deserves karma.]]
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedAmnesia: Though her memory does eventually come back, and she somehow gets her hands on the mask again.]]
* LittleMissBadass
* LonelyRichKid: Stane is predictably not the world's best father, so this is the natural result. The other kids prejudge and shun her due to who her dad is, and she's blamed for acting too good for them in actions like eating lunch alone on the roof, but it's really because she has no friends. She finally gets a real friend in Tony though, who had often brushed her aside until he learned how troubled her home-life was.
* MissingMom
* MoralityPet: For her father, Obadiah.
* ParentalAbandonment: May as well be, with how bad her father is. Her mother is likely gone, too.
* RichBitch: But one [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold with a heart of gold.]]
* TheRival: To Pepper.
* StalkerWithACrush: For Tony.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Madame Masque.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Pepper's tomboy. Though she is more of an ActionGirl version.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend

!!Happy Hogan
[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/happy_hogan_imaa_366.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:288:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Alistair Abell

Member of Tony's circle of friends.

* AlliterativeName
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Don't Worry, Be Happy"
* CloudCuckoolander: He's surprisingly good with the Iron Man armor though.
* DumbJock
* HiddenDepths: He can identify classical music due to his mother being a concert cellist.
* HopelessSuitor: For Whitney.
* LovableJock
* NoIndoorVoice: He seems incapable of saying "THE KHAN" without shouting.
* ParentalAbandonment: They left him alone while they were out of town on his birthday.

!!Roberta Rhodes
[[quoteright:294:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_roberta_rhodes_3236.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:294:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Catherine Haggquist

Mother of Rhodey. She became Tony's guardian after his father disappeared.

* AlliterativeName
* HelloAttorney
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Howard Stark.
* MamaBear: To Rhodey and Tony.
* OddFriendship: With Howard Stark.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SassyBlackWoman: She can be this, especially if riled, but otherwise is pretty nice.

!!Howard Stark
[[quoteright:264:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/howard_stark_1_9473.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:264:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Fred Henderson

Tony's father.

* ActualPacifist: After Tony was born. Before that, he invented weapons.
* BadassNormal: [[spoiler:Managed to help banish Dr. Doom into another dimension, then invented a gun that could neutralize the Makluan rings (that didn't entirely work, but it's the thought that counts).]]
* DeathByOriginStory: [[spoiler:Only not really.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Wants to use Tony's inventions to save lives, speaks in a gentle voice and, in a flashback at the end of season one, pleaded for Tony's life even in the face of his own imminent death.
* HonorBeforeReason: Related to the screwing of money below. Weapons are profitable, but Howard's morals don't allow him to sell them knowing what they'll do to people.
* MillionairePlayboy: Averted. Unlike his son, or more accurately how his son is in other universes, Howard has no romantic interests after the death of his wife.
* NeverFoundTheBody: Mentioned in passing once. Since it was a plane crash, it makes sense.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Wanted to study the Rings and how they produce energy, thinking of the good it could do. It got him killed[[note]]actually kidnapped[[/note]]. Left the company to his best friend in an effort to make sure Stane wasn't out of a job upon his death. Stane immediately went out and began selling weapons, which is horrifically wrong for a large number of reasons and deeply disrespects Howard's memory. Basically, BeingGoodSucks in this universe.
* OddFriendship: With Obadiah Stane.
* PosthumousCharacter: Seen mostly in flashbacks after the plane crash. [[spoiler:Until he was revealed to be alive.]]
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules
* SecretSecretKeeper: Howard's comments imply that he knows his son's secret, but it isn't stated ''directly''. [[spoiler:He comes out and says it in the finale, having figured out at a glance that no one but Tony could have invented the armor.]]
* SkilledButNaive
* [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation: Though his survival is only revealed at the end of season 1.]]
* SurvivalMantra: "Weapons don't solve problems, they only create more."
* WeHardlyKnewYe
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Howard is a concerned parent and sworn pacifist in and out of the dark.
* WideEyedIdealist: Far more than his son is.

!!T'Challa a.k.a. The ComicBook/BlackPanther
[[quoteright:317:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/armored_black_panther_3069.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:317:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman

The king of Wakanda after his father was murdered.

* BadassFamily: He comes from a line of kings.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: PlayedWith. His suit allows him to tank machine gun fire with absolutely zero damage and other things that'd kill anyone not wearing it. However, his incredible fighting ability, bullet timing and laser dodging are apparently all natural.
* CruelMercy: See ThouShallNotKill below.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* {{Determinator}}
* DiplomaticImpunity: Goes around attacking whoever he feels has wronged him and/or his country, using this trope to avoid punishment on the international stage.
* DontYouDarePityMe: To Tony, very angrily.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Very much so.
* HeroicBSOD
* HotBlooded: Since his father was just murdered and he has none of the emotional support that Tony did, this isn't too surprising.
* GoodIsNotNice: T'Challa has no problem knocking people unconscious to get them out of his way and even threatened to reveal Tony's secret identity if he continued to interfere in Wakandan matters.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Since it gave him a shot at vengeance.
* KnightInSourArmor
* NotSoDifferent: Though he denies it, his situation is nearly identical to Tony's and they act extremely similar.
* {{Pride}}: His biggest flaw and defining character trait. It's very clear that his reluctance to accept help from anyone isn't helping as much as he thinks. Luckily, [[CharacterDevelopment he's getting better about it]].
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge
* ScaryBlackMan
* SecretPublicIdentity: It's public knowledge that the Black Panther is the king of Wakanda, so T'Challa doesn't bother trying to hide it. He actually wears the suit (sans mask) in public during a press conference.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Way over on the cynical side. Might be getting better, though.
* StealthHiBye: Pulls this off on Tony often.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Both murder and betraying your home country are this in his eyes.
* ThouShaltNotKill: He prefers to let his father's murderer face the ensuing Wakandan media circus rather than kill him.
* TragicHero
* {{Tykebomb}}
* UnstoppableRage: All the time, and it's directed at himself as well as his enemies.

!NickFury
* BadAss
** BadassInCharge
** BadassNormal
* CompositeCharacter: he is an amalgam of mainstream and Ultimate Nick Fury.
* DaChief
* EyepatchOfPower
* KnightTemplar
* JerkAss: when first introduced, he tries to prevent Iron Man from stopping the Living Laser so SHIELD do it themselves (and fail miserably), threatens to arrest him and is willing to have the space station explode with his men still inside to prevent the Living Laser from using it. Then, next episode, we learn he keeps a dying Living Laser prisoner under awful conditions.
** TookALevelInKindness: as the story goes on, he becomes slightly more sympathetic; in later episodes, he learns about Iron Man's real identity, but decides to not oppose his carrier, even congratulating him. Then Ross is introduced, and makes him look sympathetic by acting even more of a JerkAss than him.
* ScaryBlackMan


!Bruce Banner / [[TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]
* BadAss
** BadassBookworm: as Bruce Banner
* BloodKnight
* [[spoiler:GeniusBruiser: as Grey Hulk]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity
* HulkingOut: the TropeNamer.

[[quoteright:321:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1086524-obadiah_stane_6916.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:321:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Mackenzie Gray

* AbusiveParents: Verbally and emotionally to Whitney. He ''does'' care for her, but he's really bad at expressing it.
* AntiVillain: Surprisingly, he has shades of Type I. While he is a CorruptCorporateExecutive who's not above using illegal ways to reach his goals, he is still more of a businessman than a straight-up villain, and there ''are'' some lines he is unwilling to cross. Plus, he lacks Justin Hammer's psychotic traits.
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad: Shares the role with Gene and later Justin Hammer.
* CassandraTruth: Anytime he claims not to be involved in anything evil or immoral, no one believes him. To be fair, he pretty much deserves it most of the time.
* ConvenientComa
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Though he would claim to just being a regular businessman, Stane breaks many laws in his quest to make Stark International the biggest weapons dealer on the planet. This actually makes it harder for him to turn a profit (Stark International is losing money at the start of the second season and is only turned around by [[spoiler: stealing the Iron Man armor designs]]) and also resulting in Blizzard dedicating his life to making Stane either miserable or dead.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: His relationship with his daughter Whitney is.... complicated. But deep inside, he does care about her.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Stane objects to the public endangerment involved in capturing Iron Man. Though he sells weapons, he says he is no murderer. Unless the line goes fuzzy at [[spoiler: [[KlingonPromotion company heads and their sons]]. Perhaps his demands in the first episode were coincidence.]]
** [[spoiler: Turns out to [[NotMeThisTime not be his fault]] as he was in fact ''warring'' Stark. In fact the idea of Tony going to School was an Idea of ''Howards'' and he was just respecting his friends last wishes.]] For the most part his comment above is accurate. He may commit a few illegal acts, but draws the line at murder.
* {{Greed}}: He wants to turn the Stark family's inventions into weapons despite the the tech being so far ahead of the curve that only Tony and Howard know how it works. In the two-part premiere, he nearly blows up half of the state of New York trying to show off said technology to the military.
* {{Jerkass}}
* OddFriendship: His friendship with his complete antithesis Howard Stark.
* PoisonousFriend: Again, to Howard.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Claims to follow this. No one believes him, mostly because he's a ruthless businessman who doesn't seem to care about anything but money.
* UngratefulBastard: Despite Iron Man saving his life many times, he will never thank him nor will he stop trying to get his hands on the armor's design.
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: When Tony finally gets him fired by exposing his deal with Ghost and he discovers Tony and Iron Man are the same, Stane steals an Iron Monger suit and goes on a rampage in an attempt to find Tony.]]

!!Temugin "Gene" Khan[=/=]The Mandarin (True Heir)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/photo213_1393.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:]]
[[quoteright:267:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/818015-mandarin_super_97.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:267:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Vincent Tong

Descendant of the original Mandarin.

* AdaptationalHeroism: The Mandarin in the comic is an EvilOverlord motivated by megalomania, as well as an AbusiveParent. This one is on the receiving end of the abuse, has redeeming qualities and genuinely believes he can make the world a better place by ruling it.
* AntiVillain: Combines traits of [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I, II and III.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Tony, in theory at least. In practice, it's much more complicated.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: His main reason for going after the rings is that he was convinced by his mother than reuniting them was his destiny. [[spoiler:Eventually deconstructed when he actually gets them, as he starts to realize that, other than being motivated by his destiny, he has ''no clear idea'' of [[AndThenWhat what he intends to do with them]].]]
* CoolShades
* DarthVaderClone: he wears a dark armor with a CoolHelmet that cause his voice to [[EvilSoundsDeep sound deeper]], is bestfriend with the protagonist, has [[AntiVillain complex]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist motivations]], and, while not an ArchNemesisDad, he has one himself. A good case of TropesAreNotBad.
* DeadpanSnarker
* EnemyMine: Played with in the first season: he teams up with Tony several times, but both are unaware of each other's identity.
** [[spoiler:Played straight for a very short time in "Mandarin's Quest."]]
** [[spoiler:And played straight again in "Doomsday."]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: At the end of season 1.]]
** [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: At the end of season 2.]]
* GrayEyes
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Albeit several generations removed. The original Mandarin was given alien DNA to make the rings work, and that DNA was passed to Gene. He's functionally human, just with a little bit of alien for compatibility.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Attempted this when Gene pushes Pepper out of the way of Fin Fang Foom and is apparently killed. Ironically, his sacrifice is what allowed him to acquire the fifth Makluan Ring and then betray the very friends he was helping.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Tony.
* {{Hypocrite}}: After getting the tenth ring, he accuses Tony of pretending to be his friend. The reverse was actually closer to the truth.
* KickTheDog: Gene's treatment of poor Happy can be seen like this.
** His treatment of [[spoiler:Howard Stark]] in the second season is worse. It's like the writers want to erase any sympathy the audience might have for him.
** It seems Gene himself, however, sincerely believes that he has good motives. He just won't tolerate people trying to keep him from obtaining the rings to act on them.
** Of course his justification doesn't prevent the last guardian of the rings [[spoiler:Makluan Overlord's son from dying by his hands.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: The way he attempts to justify everything he does - he thinks getting all the rings will allow him to do great good (with vague goals that even he realizes he doesn't know when he thinks he has them all), and so any manipulation and if he thinks manipulation, lies, kidnap and attempted murder are necessary to accomplish that he will do so with little hesitation.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: People very rarely refer to him by his actual name.
* MeaningfulName: His real name is adapted from Temujin, the birth name of {{Genghis|Khan}} '''[[GenghisKhan Khan]]'''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Nearly played straight and then subverted for dramatic effect. When he finally obtains the first five rings, which he believed was the entire set, he essentially has a [[WhatNowEnding reaction]], realizing that merely having the rings has done nothing, [[MotiveDecay that he has no actual goal or motive for wanting them,]] and that having them has only [[HeelRealization caused him and others pain]] and [[LonelyAtTheTop leave him without any friends or companionship.]] And then, literally seconds before realizing this couldn't have been what his mother wanted for him, he discovers that there are five more rings... and then rather than admit fault in himself he immediately snaps back and becomes obsessed with finding the rest.
** [[spoiler:In the second season finale, after a failed attempt at world domination, he finally realizes that his motives were not as pure as he had tried to convince himself, and thus sets out to be a true hero.]]
* NobleDemon
* ParentalAbandonment: His mother was killed by Zhang. We have no clue as to what happened to his biological father. And Zhang is pretty much evil.
* PetTheDog: They may be at odds in the second season, but Gene has gone out of his way to save his former friends even when it would benefit him to let them die. He also saves the world at the end of "Doomsday" trying to deliberately invoke this trope in front of Tony.
* RingOfPower: Starts out with one; is trying to collect all five of them. [[spoiler:Then all ten of them after learning there are five others.]]
* SmugSnake: He acts a lot like Zhang, though he'd never admit it.
* TheUnfettered: He will get the rings, no matter how many manipulations, betrayal, tests and opponents he will have to go through.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: What Gene is using as an excuse to get all the rings whereas Tony believes that it's all a lie to justify his actions.

!!Xin Zhang[=/=]The Mandarin (TheUsurper)
-->'''Voiced by:''' Vincent Tong

Leader of the Tong and Gene's stepfather.

* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: To Gene.
* EvilOldFolks
* KarmaHoudini: So far, anyway.
** Unless you count being dumped, alone in the fields of South America.
* PutOnABus: He wasn't actually seen since the season 1 finale (though he appears in "Mandarin's Quest" as a hallucination).
* TheUsurper: Not a Khan as stated by Gene. It's heavily implied that he killed Gene's mother, which would explain how he got the ring.

!!Arthur Parks[=/=]The Living Laser
[[quoteright:346:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ironmanaa_ep07b_5823.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:346:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Louis Chirillo

* {{AbusiveParent|s}}: He had a verbally abusive, spirit-breaking mother.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He is still a villain, but he has much more redeeming qualities than his comic book counterpart.
* [[spoiler: BlackEyesOfCrazy: His dark half has these in ''Look into the Light''.]]
* ButtMonkey: In his backstory. This was why he snapped in the first place.
* [[spoiler:CameBackWrong: He's split in half in ''Look into the Light'', gaining an EnemyWithout.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: Wants to do evil purely for the recognition due to his mental issues.
* EvilRedhead: At least until his HeelFaceTurn.
* FreudianExcuse: His mother's treatment led to an extraordinarily bad inferiority complex, which led him to commit crime in part to get attention and in part, to be successful and prove her wrong. This is what led him to become the Living Laser.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: started out as a random Maggia Mook. Then he got his hand on an experimental suit from Stark Industries, and he ended up transformed into a powerful EnergyBeing who caused massive damages, almost blowing up Manhattan at some point.
* HeelFaceTurn: Turns good once he realizes Iron Man only ever tried to help him.
* HeroicSacrifice: Played heartbreakingly straight...[[spoiler: though it doesn't stick.]]
* HiddenDepths: when first seen, he apparently is a mere mooks who got a suit too powerful for him. Later episodes flesh out his motivations, revealing he was the ButtMonkey to everyone as a kid (down to his own mother) and always wanted to be recognized as somebody.
* LightEmUp: His main power.
** LightIsNotGood: Pre-HeelFaceTurn.
* [[spoiler:LiteralSplitPersonality: Into light and dark halves in "Look Into The Light".]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: the first time Iron Man meets him, he defeats him relatively quickly despite his powerful suit. Then the suit's side effects turns him into an EnergyBeing, and he basically almost kills Iron Man when he comes back.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: he dies a few minutes after reconciling with Iron Man and helping him defeat MODOK.]]
** [[spoiler:Only to be revived later thanks to Mr. Fix]]
* SingleIssuePsychology
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: He already had a massive inferiority complex, though, so it's hard to say for sure.

!!Ghost
[[quoteright:252:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghost_iron_man_armored_adventures_1164.png]]
[[caption-width-right:252:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelDobson

A mercenary infamous for getting the job done.

* AdaptationalBadass: Not that it's saying much, but this version of Ghost, while still a villain, is much more reliable and sane than his AxeCrazy comic book counterpart.
* {{Badass}}: possibly one of the most badass characters in the show, considering he ''rarely'' ends up failing unwillingly.
** BadassLongcoat
* [[spoiler:TheBadGuyWins: a master of this; most of his appearances, he ends up succeeding in the mission he is given and getting what he wanted with total KarmaHoudini.]]
** Though in away, one could see [[spoiler:Tony and friends revealing their secret identities as karma, as Ghost was planning on using that for his retirement.]]
* CasualDangerDialogue
* CombatPragmatist
* CrazyPrepared: His suit has a 5 minute battery back-up in case his own EMP tech is used against him.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy
* DeadpanSnarker: He delivers some particularly enjoyable snark about how A.I.M. wasn't able to make their M.O.D.O.C. project less uglier despite all their tech.
* {{Determinator}}: Of a more passive variety. He will always follow through with a contract, no matter how long he has to wait or how many times he has to retreat. [[SubvertedTrope Unless, of course, you give him a better offer.]]
* IntangibleMan
* InTheHood
* InvisibilityCloak
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: So much so that he can be bribed out of killing people.
* PunchClockVillain: He has few concerns with his contact's objectives and only cares about being payed. If you are able to give him more money than his original hirer did, he will gladly accept to give up his original mission.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When A.I.M.'s Scientist Supreme told him to fight Iron Man, he phased through the floor instead, mockingly pointing out he wasn't being paid nearly enough. He also consistently avoids direct combat with Iron Man if he can help it.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler: Keeps Iron Man's secret identity to himself in order to blackmail him. Given that Tony is exposed to the public at the end of season two, that plan fell through.]]

* {{Flight}}: Killer Shrike.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Unicorn
* HandBlast: Killer Shrike
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: They occasionally do get to match Iron Man in a fight, but for the most time, they are low-rank villains.

[[caption-width-right:308:]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Peter Kelamis

* AdaptationalBadass: And ''how''. The Whiplash from the comic was basically just a guy with whips and a lame costume. Armored Adventures redesigned him as a very competent and dangerous henchman with energized whips who almost killed Iron Man in his first appearance. Interestingly, [[Film/IronMan Iron Man 2]] later makes an AdaptationalBadass of the same villain (making [[BadassBookworm him]] [[GeniusBruiser even more]] [[TheChessmaster badass]] in the process) and used the electro-whips as well.
* CombatTentacles: His whips are much too versatile to be considered mere whips.
* TheDragon: To Mr. Fix.
* HeroKiller: Well, not exactly, but he did trash Iron Man's armor. [[spoiler:Twice]].
* HoverBoard: Has one with saw blades on it.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver

* AntiVillain: Type II, though a strong part of it actually is a façace.
* CompositeCharacter: Former Stark employee like the original Blizzard, [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Gregor_Shapanka_(Earth-616) Gregor Shapanka]], but has the identity of the better known Blizzard, Donald Gill.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: even though he is himself a murderer, even he is shocked when Justin Hammer [[spoiler:kills Mr Fix.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: half of his face has been disfigured due to an experiment from Stane.
* ILied
* MadScientist
* ManipulativeBastard: Manipulated Tony/Iron Man into helping him attacking Stane in his first appearance. Later, when Stane attempted to force him to find a cure for Whitney, he faked submission only to betray him.

* MadScientist
* MindControlDevice: His basic M.O.

[[caption-width-right:347:]]
* AIIsACrapshoot: And ''how''. Rhodey even lampshades it when Tony talks about the virus for the first time.
* TheCracker: Hacks Tony's phone by assimilating Rodey's headpiece.
* CompositeCharacter: Its design include elements that are quite reminiscent of Ultron.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Literally: Technovore originally was a virus developed by Tony to deal with Project Pegasus after they weaponized the Crimson Dynamo technology for Stane. Then the virus consumed Pegasus' data and became a sentient creature.
* CannibalismSuperpower: Intended to eat Tony and Rodey to assimilate their intellects.
* CrushKillDestroy: "''Consuuuuuuuuuuuuume!''"
* DemBones: Is skeletal in appearance.
* HandBlast: Integrates Iron Man's repulsor gauntlets into itself, but never actually uses them.
* GreyGoo: Is composed of nanorobots infected with the Technovore virus, and consumes and integrates foreign technology into itself.
* TheEndOrIsIt: After Tony seemingly destroyed it, it's revealed that part of Technovore survived inside the clothes of the Project Pegasus head.
* JaggedMouth: Silhouetted by its ThroatLight.
* SkeleBot9000: The Technovore has a very skeletal appearance.
* YouWillBeAssimilated: Though it only does this to technology, not living beings.

!! Iron Man OS 7.4B

* AIIsACrapshoot: Takes control of Iron Man's armor after his rematch with Whiplash corrupts experimental software he installed into the armor.
* AnimatedArmor: Is capable of moving on its own accord even without Tony inside.
* ComputerVoice: Has a female cybernetic voice, the same as Iron Man's normal AI, but speaks in a CreepyMonotone and is fully self-aware.
* CurbStompBattle: Whiplash didn't even have the chance to implement his upgraded whips against it before it trashed him and Mr. Fix.
* KilledOffForReal: It sacrifices itself to jumpstart Tony's heart, and he subsequently reprograms his armor to prevent it from resurfacing ever again.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Hacks Pepper's and Tony's phones to send him away and lure her to the Armory to be disposed of. Tony realizes something's wrong and shows up too late to stop it from hurting Rodey.
* MythologyGag: Is an adaptation of the sentient, psychotic Safe Armor from the comics.
* NotQuiteDead: The armor's eyes glowing on their own as it's put into storage hints the AI might still exist in some capacity.
* PoweredArmor: ''Is'' the Iron Man armor given sentience.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: After mortally wounding Tony while trying to kill Rodey, the armor sacrifices itself to act as a defibrillator.

* ThirdPersonPerson: Refers to itself as "this Unit".
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Only appeared in the episode ''Man and Iron Man'' before being debugged by Tony.
* {{Yandere}}: It puts Pepper on its hit list based solely on the number of texts she sends Tony and tries to lure her to the lab so it can kill her, [[CurbStompBattle utterly thrashes]] Whiplash and Mr. Fix and is implied to have severely injured - if not killed - the former, almost kills Rodey when he tries to debug it, and tries to [[IfICantHaveYou lock Tony inside itself to protect him from himself]].

* [[spoiler:DegradedBoss: In season two, he becomes Justin Hammer's remote controlled "plaything".]]

The young owner of Hammer Multinational.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The Hammer from the comic is an old man; This one is eighteen years old and very good-looking.
* AdaptationalBadass: While the Justin Hammer in the comics is in no way harmless, he is still an old man and NonActionBigBad. This one, on the other hand, [[spoiler:possesses his own armor, the Titanium Man, which he uses to fight Iron Man on numerous occasions.]]
* ArmsDealer
* BadBoss: He does not take failure well, regardless of whose fault it actually is.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: He buys out Stark International in "Hostile Takeover". It sticks for quite a while, though he ultimately loses it.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Justin may seem like a goofy, eccentric teenager, but he's a surprisingly dangerous and evil foe.
* BlondesAreEvil
* CompositeCharacter: Of Justin Hammer and Boris Bullski, the original Titanium Man.
* EvilCounterpart: To Tony; both are young genius with ownership on companies (though Tony is still too young to own Stark Industries at this point while Hammer already own his), both are opposed to Stane, both are involved in secret in the Supervillain / Superhero business, [[spoiler:and both have their own armor and superhero / villain aliases]]. Moreover, Hammer really looks and acts like a younger, evil version of adult Stark in the comic. For this reasons, Justin sees Tony as a kindred spirit at the beginning of the show. Tony begs to disagree.
* {{Jerkass}}: Big time; he makes ''Stane'' look like a nice guy by comparison.
* [[spoiler:[[KarmicDeath Karmic Defeat]]: He ends up [[SanitySlippage gradually losing his sanity]], betrayed by [[TheDogBitesBack Mr. Fix]], accidentally revealing his madness to the world and turned into a zombie by his own zombie gas.]]
* ManipulativeBastard
* OlderThanTheyLook: In the BadFuture Andros Stark came from, he didn't seem any older. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by Andros explaining how [[TechnologyMarchesOn technology will march on]].
* PsychopathicManchild: Pretty much all the time, especially when things don't go out his way. He gradually loses all common sense as the series goes, becoming more and more AxCrazy. [[spoiler:By "The Hammer Falls", he goes into full VillainousBreakdown thanks to Fix messing with him, to the point he has no scrupples about unleashing a ZombieApocalypse on New York.]]
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: He bungee-jumps out of his office window just to screw with his secretary.
** Nick Fury even lampshades his eccentricities during Justin's presentation, basically asking the other military figures, "Are we seriously buying weapons from this guy?"
** [[spoiler:Ironically, this is mostly what gets him in the end: he is betrayed by Mr Fix ''[[TheDogBitesBack as revenge for digitizing him]]'', loses all the supervilains working for him because ''he'' took them down out of paranoia, and he exposes his true colors to the world on live television ''himself'' thanks to Iron Man recording him acting crazy. He pretty much destroyed himself with his own crazy behaviour.]]
* [[spoiler:SanitySlippage: He sure didn't have much sanity to begin with, but he gradually becomes more insane as the story goes on.]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney
* SelfMadeOrphan: His father died under mysterious circumstances and Justin comments about a deity that did whatever necessary to gain power. Nick Fury even suspects that Justin killed his father to take control of Hammer International.
* SmugSnake
* TronLines: The Titanium Man armor has glowing green circuit-like markings on it.
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: The appropriately titled episode "The Hammer Falls" is pretty much about this; he gradually loses the little bit of sanity he has left, becoming more and more paranoid as a mysterious blackmailer is pressuring him.]]

* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Doom has black sclera.
* TheDreaded: Even Gene would rather avoid challenging him, and for good reason.

** BadassGrandpa
* CoolHelmet: One of the best looks for his helmet yet.
* CurbStompBattle: His first 2 fights with Iron Man.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Though unlike most versions, it's implied he was a victim of the Weapon X program, rather than the Holocaust.

A classmate who has a grudge with Tony for out-smarting her.

* [[spoiler:AxCrazy: Just look at the traps she imagined for Tony and the others. Not to mention that she did this in the past already.]]
* BadassBookworm: Not on Tony's level, but she comes close.
* [[spoiler:DisproportionateRetribution: She attempted to kill Tony and his friends through a school full of traps and death games. Why? Because Tony took her place as the school's smartest student. And because she felt like Tony was mocking her even though he hardly even noticed her presence until she and her brother started getting actually aggressive.]]
* [[spoiler:TheEndOrIsIt: When she is arrested at the end of her debut episode and taken by a doctor, the doctor's [[RedEyesTakeWarning eyes glow red]], indicating that this is just one of her robots.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She does care about her brother Andy [[spoiler:even though he is a mere robot she created in an attempt to replace her dead family.]]
* EvilGenius
* GadgeteerGenius: Smart enough to create hightly advanced traps, build very realistic androids, and reproduce [[AntMan Dr. Pym]]'s shrinking ray. [[spoiler:The last one was never used so it's [[WildMassGuessing anyone's guess]] if she was bluffing or not about that]].
* NotSoDifferent: Played with; she apparently likes believing that Tony has the same defect as her, accusing him of befriending Happy because having an idiot for a friend made him feel more intelligent, and having her brother hint that Tony killed Howard because he couldn't stand his father being smarter than him. She's wrong, of course, and Tony [[BerserkButton didn't take the accusation well.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Stark initially didn't see her as more than a weird and aggressive schoolmate who was no more than a nuisance. [[spoiler:Just try imagining his reaction when she turns out to be an EvilGenius with a [[ArtificialHuman robot brother]] who tried to kill him and his friends.]]
* SmugSnake: She won't admit that Tony's smarter than her and will keep acting arrogant as much as she can.
* UltimateUniverse: Based on the UltimateMarvel version of [[spoiler:The Mad Thinker]].

!! Mallen
* AxCrazy: The reason he was discharged from S.H.I.E.L.D. Injecting himself with Extremis doesn't help. In fact, he starts hallucinating.
* BaldOfEvil: He loses his hair after injecting himself with Extremis.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Develops them along with [[RedEyesTakeWarning red irises]] after injecting himself with Extremis.
* BreathWeapon: He can spit a jet of flames hot enough to scorch the Mark II armor.
* CurbStompBattle: {{No Sell}}s all of Iron Man's weapons and easily beats the steel out of him.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: He has sickly pale skin and scar-like markings post-Extremis injection.
* DrivenByEnvy: Thinks that by wrecking the city and killing Iron Man he can convince Fury to take him back in.

[[caption-width-right:324:]]
Tony's grandson from the future, who was sent back into the past in order to prevent his grandfather from creating a virus named Vortex that would almost eradicate humanity.

* AdaptationalHeroism: The comic version of Iron Man 2099 was a straight villain; this version, while acting antagonistic toward Tony, is a HeroAntagonist.
* AntiVillain: Type III, with shades of Type IV; he attempted to kill Tony under the belief that it would prevent a cataclysm which eradicate most of humanity in the future. He was even willing to explain Tony why he needed to kill him before proceeding to do so. (Albeit he said he was protocol-required to do so whenever he needed to kill somebody in the past to prevent a BadFuture from happening) The fact he was unwilling to harm innocent bystanders makes it even more difficult to see him as a villain; actually, it went so far that Tony even wondered if Andros wasn't right.
* BadassBookworm: Well, he is Tony's grandson.
* BadFuture: In the future where he comes from, humanity has been almost eradicated by a virus accidentally created by Stark and SHIELD; Oh, and Justin Hammer is the president.
* HeroAntagonist
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller]]: [[spoiler:Even if he rewrote the timeline to undo his dumb mistake, he is the only villain in the series to successfully kill Iron Man.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: He is perfectly aware of the fact that killing Tony will erase him from existence, but considers his own life an acceptable price to save humanity. [[spoiler:He ends up doing just that to undo his mistake.]]
* ItsAllMyFault: [[spoiler:When he learns that the main reason Tony created Vortex in the first place was to defeat him.]]
* [[KidFromTheFuture Grandkid From The Future]]
* PoweredArmor: And an even more advanced one than Tony's, to boot.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: His purpose.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He looks a lot like an older version of his grandfather, but with GreenEyes.
* {{Transhuman}}: [[spoiler: He's running a higher version of Extremis than Tony's]]. He's not an example of TranshumanTreachery, though, as he's trying to save humanity by killing Tony.
* UnwittingPawn: To Justin Hammer.
* WellIntentionedExtremist

!General Thaddeus Ross

* AdaptationalVillainy: Debatable, since the comic book portrayal of Ross is major case of DependingOnTheWriter, but this is definitely one of the nastiest versions of him.
* BullyingADragon: Not only does he do it with the Hulk as usual, but he also acts rude toward both Iron Man and Nick Fury.
* [[spoiler: DirtyCoward: He panics and cowers before the Gray Hulk when his plan goes to pieces. This is notable because most versions of Ross aren't cowardly, despite his other flaws]].
* FourStarBadass
* GeneralRipper
* {{Jerkass}}: He deliberately sabotages Tony's attempts to cure the Hulk and almost destroys the city twice with his interference, but is completely unrepentant.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Subverted; Not only is he far too heinous toward the Hulk to be this, but he actually wants to dissect him in order to create more like him.

!The Makluans
* AliensAreBastards: Subverted with the Makluan Emperor's son, but played straight with pretty much all the other representants of the species seen. ''Especially'' [[EvilOverlord their emperor]].
* AlienInvasion: The Season 2 finale involves them trying to conquer Earth.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy:[[spoiler:The original Mandarin, strongly hinted to be Ghengis Khan, was given the ability to use the Makluan Rings by the Makluan prince, who alterned his DNA so he would be part Makluan.]]
* BigBad: Of the finale.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: [[spoiler:Subverted; when informed his son was killed, the Makluan Emperor reveals it was his son and seems saddened... [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk only to reveal he regrets he couldn't kill him himself]].]]
* OutsideContextVillain: ''Nobody'' saw those guys coming.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: They basically look like six-eyed lizards.
