‘I am Iron Man’ and ‘I love you 3000’ are perhaps two dialogues that any Iron Man fan could never forget. If you have been keeping a track of the Avengers series, you already know how powerful he is. But why is he so popular? Let us see.
Tony Stark is an ingenious scientist and the owner of Stark Industries. He is once kidnapped by some terrorists who ask him to build a weapon of mass destruction. He suffers a severe chest injury while being kidnapped. Instead of building the weapon his captors ask for, he creates a mechanized suit of armour to save his life and escape from captivity.
Later, Stark develops his suit, adding weapons and other technological devices he designs. He uses this suit to save the world time and again. He conceals his true identity in the beginning, but later reveals to the world that he is iron Man.
Tony Stark is an average human being with high intellect and mastery over martial arts. It is his suit that powers him and he can be killed with any weapon outside his suit. Tony Stark is also a founding member of the Avengers.
Iron Man was co-created by writer and editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. The character made its first appearance in 1963. Iron Man is played by Robert Downey Jr. in the film adaptations.
