Tony's parents got divorced when he was very little. He stayed with his father, but his twin sister, Emily, went with their mother, and Tony's memory of her soon faded away, because he was so young. His father did not give much thought on the divorce, or on Tony, and he only focused on his projects for Stark Industries. Whenever he would pay attention to Tony, he was teaching him how everything worked, constantly feeding knowledge into the young child's mind.
Sole Heir of Stark Industries
Tony was only twelve years old when his father died of a rare disease called the Extremis. Tony didn't know much about, and he really didn't want to. Tony didn't know what he was going to do, but his father's friend, Obadiah Stane took Tony under his wing and raised him, teaching him everything he needed to know about Stark Industries and the world of business. Tony was only sixteen years old when he made his triumphant return, exclaiming that he is in charge of Stark Industries, and he plans on making it better than ever, and when it is perfect, he plans to keep improving it. This one statement gained him endless publicity and fame.
Adjusting to Fame
Tony had little trouble adjusting to his new, luxurious life. He took several hiatuses off of Stark Industries, leaving Obadiah to do everything, while Tony would work on creating robots to become his butlers, but he eventually scrapped them and created an AI named Jarvis, who did everything for Tony, he even made his house bigger than the White House, which Tony enjoyed. However, Obadiah did not approve of Tony's new life style, but his new publicist, Pepper Potts, assured Obadiah Tony is perfectly fine the way he is. Obadiah was reluctant to accept it, but after he discovered Stark Industries would be making weapons for S.H.I.E.L.D., he loosened up, enjoying the new business plan.
