Tony building a stun gun out of home electronics would be impressive... for someone who wasn't already Tony Stark. As it is it's a bit like Superman dramatically lifting a motorcycle over his head. It's sort of the bare minimum of what you'd expect him to be capable of.
It's not a bad idea to have Tony cobble together some DIY weapons together. It's just a bit of a letdown that they're not more spectacular than what we saw. Knowing he built the first Iron Man suit in a cave out of scrap metal, you kind of want him to at least build some little *batteries not included attack drones out of kids' toys or something. Or whatever, something a bit more over the top.

My headcanon is that the Hulkbuster in the MCU was in part inspired by the Iron Monger suit design. The Hulkbuster is very different from Tony's usual preferred aesthetic of favoring sleeker and more portable and efficient designs.
I mean, here is the actual scene in question:
Tony doesn't just make a stun gun; he creates homemade tranquilizer darts, a homemade taser glove, and homemade grenades.
That's because it's supposed to fight the Hulk.

Yeah. Like I said. Kind of wish it was a bit more over the top.

Yeah itís all pretty mundane.
Whereís the showmanship?

Hey, leave him alone, he only had a few hours to put that together. It's not like they left him alone for weeks in a cave with a box of scraps.

Not good enough.
Heís Tony Fucking Stark, quite possibly the smartest man on the planet who revolutionized energy technology.
Heís a Goddamn magician of science. Possibly a God or a deity or well something of that level.

Tony's genius when it comes to making weapons out of scraps should rival that of Mekboyz.
Maybe that's why Tony's armors have a lot of red.

It's just more fun that way. He's Iron Man, you're being given a license to get away with a lot, here. Go a little crazy, even.
I'd like to see the Hulk just WAAAAGH together a spaceship at one point. Just yell at it until it formed itself out of a Sakaaran junkpile.

On the other hand he was stress and tony really do bad stuff when he is stress.
posion heart? a string of bad choices.
PTDS? plenty of armours
Wanda mind vision? he build ultron.
By this train of logic, by the time his child is born, he will build a fucking death star just to release stress.
I think you just spoiled the plot of Endgame.
I think he once built a gigantic mobile base armor in the Ultimate comics.
Nah, Tony will "just" create another super powerful robot as a bodyguard for his kid. Said robot will then become the MCU version of The Fury.
Tony Stark did not build a Death Star. No, he built a goddamn Dyson Sphere.
Unsung: no, the ening will be this
Cap: we defeat thanos!, now tony, give us the gauntlet to reverse this......
Tony, give us the gauntlet....stop looking like that...tony....nonono-
...roll credits....finall words....we are in iron man 4 now...
As long as Iron Man 4 is based on the "Armor Wars" storyline and introduces Riri Williams, I'm okay with that.
Nah, Tony would instead make a new Iron Man suit that incorporates the Infinity Gauntlet in it. The Infinity Armor.

And engraving "im a loser" in both bucky and capitan amrican back permanly.
Why didnít Tony just call the cops on the house rather than trying to storm it himself.
The one the mandarin was in.
probably because the bad guy would kill the cops?
I still think it'd me hilarious if Harley grows up to be Kang.
I assume he did, but only after he mopped the place up. Superhero stories (and action movies, for that matter) tend to feature a certain lack of trust in the capabilities of police to get the job done.

Hmmm. I always forget that scene.
Right there with Cap landing on the grenade, the punch-up he and Bucky had with Tony, the elevator fight in Winter Soldier, Iron Man's first take-off, Thanos beating the snot out of Hulk, and Strange using the Time Stone it's one of the best scenes in the MCU.
I don't even remember the skydiving scene in IM 3. And honestly, I don't know whether IM 3 is agood Shane Black movie, as I never watched any Shane Black movies other than IM 3, and I honestly don't plan to.
For me, IM 3 failed in pretty much every regard, not just as an Iron Man movie.
