Scientist by day, superhero by night

-A A +A
By Quninn McCulloch

Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is a man of unusual qualities. Not only is he a genius winning numerous prestigious awards in technology, as well as a very rich man because of his designs at a weapons manufacturing firm, but he is also cocky, handsome and has a way with women that would make even Casanova jealous.

One day, while out demonstrating a new weapon to American military interests in Afghanistan, Stark’s escorting convoy is attacked by Afghan militants. Both the vehicles and soldiers are obliterated, but Stark is captured because of his intimate involvement in weapons design.

While in captivity, Stark plans a means to escape by disobeying the Afghans’ orders to duplicate the new weapon, and instead forges a mechanical suit of armor ,allowing him to break free.

However, Stark is unable to truly break free, as his experiences in Afghanistan have not only left him physically scarred, but have left a deep imprint on his heart and soul.

Upon his return to the United States, Stark begins to realize the effect that his technological creations are having on the rest of the world. With this realization, he begins to refine his iron suit and plans to put an end to the harm he has caused humanity.
