Tony Stark, Iron Man, is a hero and WEB Resistance member in the Earth 2345678 universe.
Millionaire inventor Tony Stark was kidnapped by a group of terrorists and severely wounded. Building a suit of Iron to keep himself alive, he fought the terrorists and decided to return as the superhero Iron Man. Eventually he founded the superhero team the Avengers, acting as active member and financial backer for the team.
Rise of the Spider
During his 3rd year as a Avenger, another hero (Spider-Man) was said to have murdered a 7-year-old girl. So he and the other Avengers hunted him for months, until it was proven that Spider-Man was indeed not the killer. Afterwards, the mysterious hero went into hiding for several months. Unbeknownst to the Avengers, he was planning his revenge against humanity. All Thor knew was that a great evil was arising, but he could not figure out what. Almost a year later, one of SHIELD's biggest adversaries, AIM, was completely wiped off the map, and the Hand was rumored to be led by a new villain. It wasn't until the new organization known as WEB attacked the SHIELD Helicarrier, that anyone realized that Spider-Man was responsible for AIM's defeat and the Hand's take over. After the fall of the Helicarrier, Spider-Man expanded his power by conquering HYDRA and Latveria. What was left of SHIELD and Earth's heroes formed the WEB Resistance. Tony escaped to the Savage Land with his suits as the world fought a ten year battle against Spidey's army.
10 Years Later
He is first seen speaking with Frank Castle about Operation Power Struggle, but aside from that, merely remains silent because of the horror he's seen, and the friends that had been killed. Deciding he had enough after Cap's death, he sent his armors. Using his armors, he lead a strike against Spider-Man with the Infinity Gauntlet. All but one was destroyed. After Spidey's defeat he moves to China.
Super-Genius class Intelligence: Quite apart from the powers granted him by the suit, Tony Stark is far more than a mechanical engineering prodigy.
Expert Engineer: He is an excellent engineer and mechanic capable of fixing almost, if not all, any machinery.
Expert Businessman: Stark is extremely well-respected in the business world, able to command people's attentions when he speaks on economic matters by virtue of the fact that he is savvy enough to have, over the years, built up several multimillion dollar companies from virtually nothing.
Indomitable Will: As evidenced by his two serious bouts with alcoholism and subsequent recovery, Stark is possessed of tremendous strength of will, never giving up and often emerging from defeat even stronger. It is arguable that the true "Iron Man" is not the armor, but Stark himself.
