Character Traits

[Likes]: Martinis, antique cars, programming, donuts, good looking people, skipping business meetings, mechanics, cartography, donuts, charity balls.

[Dislikes]: Does not like being handed things, being used, weapons of mass destruction, trickster gods, health shakes.

[Strengths]: A quick tongue matching his quick wit, Tony can smooth talk his way into getting what he wants. This, and doubled with his genius intellect and exceptional technical skills has made him a formidable ally for the Avengers.

[Weaknesses]: While he has laid his bitterness towards his father to rest, anything regarding Howard Stark is considered a sore subject, causing Tony to become angered and defensive. He also compensates for his low self-confidence by acting narcissistic and caustic. He is somewhat of an alcoholic and relies on Pepper to keep up his well-being, usually too engrossed in inventing to take care of himself.

[Desires]: A man who has everything, Tony seeks to be something of worth to the community at large by doing something good in the world. What he wanted was to keep people safe from war, but has now escalated into simply protecting earth from threats like Loki and the Chitauri.

[Fears]: He fears failure the most, brought on by the impossible standards his father bestowed on him. Failure means he failed his small group of friends, failure means he failed protecting people. Failure means the sacrifices of better people would mean nothing.

[Special Talents & Skills]: His genius intellect is nearly unrivaled, creating technologies years ahead for any scientist to catch up to. His knowledge of mechanical design have contributed immensely to his Iron Man suit, making him a formidable opponent on par to any superhero or villain.

[Mannerisms or Habits]: Tony is a wiseass with a quick tongue that would give anyone a lashing if he's properly annoyed or defensive. His clinical attitude designed as serious humor often drives the ire of much more serious individuals like Fury. When unhinged, he tends to be destructive and nonchalant, becoming more of a drama queen than he usually is.

[Feelings on Their Own Personal Appearance?]: Tony knows he's good looking. He could wear a potato sack and still looks hot walking down Soho in it.

[Outgoing or shy?]: Outgoing to the max. His rare moments of shyness, however, is usually when he becomes unsure of social cues like having a stable relationship or simply apologizing to people.

[Optimist or pessimist?]: Once a pessimist pre-Iron Man, but he has now donned a more optimistic approach to life since joining the Avengers.

[Emotional or logical?]: Both. Logical when it counts, emotional when he needs to inspire or knock someone emotionally down.

[Easily Embarrassed, or Out There for The World]: Out there. Cannot stress this enough.

[Attitudes Toward Others?]: Teasing and friendly towards people who he thinks deserves his company. Others he is sarcastic and arrogant, sometimes having a hard time remembering names of others which causes rivalries.

[Prefer Work or Play?]: Work and play for Tony Stark goes hand-in-hand.


[Good? Bad? Neutral?]: Good?

[Do They Have a Sense of Right and Wrong?]: Pretty sure he does.

[Do They Feel Guilty for Anything?]: Yinsen's death, his own weapons used against his country, Coulson's death.


[Dream Job]: Engineer

[Will They or Won't They Get it? Why?]: Already got it, hands down.

[Want to Get Married?]: Maybe.

[Do You Want Children?]: He's too scared at the idea that he'll end up like Howard to even consider it.

[Their Dreams For the Future?]: Ending war and building a safer, less violent environment for mankind.

[Sum up your character with a single sentence.... could be something original or a quote]: "I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit is to turn over myself which is tantamount to indentured servitude or prostitution depending on what state you're in."


[Family]: Tony Stark's family are well connected and relatively famous in American history. His father was a major contributor to the Manhattan Project and created Stark Industries in the funding of military weaponry and technological advances in modern warfare. It is only in recent years did Tony eventually reinvented Stark Industries into a friendlier role for the industry: inviting technological breakthroughs for the good of mankind and closing down the military cache altogether.

[Personal]: While distant from his parents, more so his father than his mother, Tony was bright and innovative at a very young age, being sent to the best private schools and tutor-age to develop his technical genius. At age four, he developed his own circuit board and at age six, put together an engine from scratch.

In a bid to prove himself worthy to the impossible bar his father had set for him, Tony graduated from MIT at the age of 17 and obtained two master degrees in physics and engineering at the age of 19. This, unfortunately, did not seem to sway his father's attention and they had never reconciled well after the deaths of both his parents from a car accident in 1991. Obadiah Stane, a family friend and a surrogate father to Tony, took over the company until Tony took it back at the age of 21, shaking the business world by becoming the youngest CEO of a multibillion dollar corporation in America. He had later promoted Pepper Potts from secretary to becoming Tony's personal assistant, becoming vitriolic friends in the process.

Tony had turned Stark Industries into a full-fledged complex designed for the enhancement of weaponry and munitions for the American government, taking a cynical role in the belief that the only way to beat a bully is to have the bigger stick. It wasn't until after the unveiling of a revolutionized missile called the Jericho in Afghanistan did his opinion changed.

Set up by Stane in an attempt to kill Tony and reclaim power over Stark Industries, Tony was kidnapped by Middle Eastern terrorists called the Ten Rings, who were promised weapons and the Jericho missiles from Stane to keep the war going for monetary gain. After Tony was gravely injured during the kidnapping, he was outfitted with a rudimentary pulsar from a fellow prisoner named Yinsen in order to keep the shrapnel embedded from reaching his heart and killing him. He was then demanded to recreate the Jericho missiles for their captors. Using his technical prowess to fashion an arc reactor for his chest, he and Yinsen set about escaping, creating the first Iron Man armor disguised as the missile.

Escaping with the heroic sacrifice of Yinsen, Tony sought to close down SI's weapon complex, much to Stane's displeasure. At the same time, he vowed to stop the Ten Rings from using his own weapons, redesigning the armor to become lighter, faster, and more powerful. This becomes his path to redemption, fueled by Yinsen's words that Tony had "everything, and yet nothing". After finding Stane the mastermind behind the kidnapping and the selling of his weapons to terrorists, they had a showdown in full armor, revealing to the public of the mysterious figure now dubbed Iron Man.

During a public appearance, Tony revealed himself as Iron Man, causing an international sensation that attracted Howard Stark's former business partner on his death bed. His son, Ivan Vanko, who believed that Howard Stark had stolen his father's ideas and had gotten rich because of it, vowed revenge against Tony and set off to create his own armor. At the same breath, Tony now had to deal with the revealing of his identity and the government's press for him to relinquish his suit, as well has his slow death from palladium poisoning due to it being the only element to fuel his arc reactor.

This causes him to become unruly and defiant, pushing away his friends and allies and putting him on a destructive path. Added to this, Director Nick Fury had been evaluating him for the Avenger initiative, but found him too unstable to join. However, SHIELD and his allies press him to find a way to discover a new element to save him. In doing so, Tony discovers the plans of a new element from his own father, making his arc reactor more powerful and less toxic. During Stark Expo, he discovers that not only did his friend Rhodes had taken one of his suits, but sold it to a rival company and mass produced an army of rudimentary iron soldiers which was now controlled by Vanko. Following a large battle to destroy the iron soldiers, Tony and Rhodes team up against Vanko, killing him in the process.

Fury by then had finished his evaluation for Iron Man's induction into the Avengers. Deciding that Tony's psych profile was undesirable for a role in the Avengers, he assigned Tony to become a consultant for the team instead. However, following Loki's plan to rule the earth with an army of Chitauri, Fury had no other choice but to promote Tony to an actual member, reigning second-in-command to Steve Rogers until the Avengers broke up following the aftermath of the battle.

Currently, he is modeling his company alongside Pepper Potts in the advancement of clean energy and technological advances for human kind and is redesigning Stark Tower to become the future headquarters for the Avengers.
