Tony was the head of the massive arms industry with his company, Stark Industries, until he was kidnapped by terrorists that were using weapons developed by his company. He created a suit of armor to escape, and stopped all arms manufacturing by his company. The whole debacle inspired Stark to make a suit of power armor (currently a Cosmic-level suit with Super Karma) so that he could begin to fight terrorists on his own, rather than allowing the military to focus on it.

Over the years, this billionaire has developed several suits of this armor, all sealed for space activity and allowing him to become a one-man armory, with his repulsor gauntlets, darts, missiles, and his unibeam. He also has a number of flares built into his legs that must be replaced manually (they aren't really a power).

Stark himself is an arrogant man that can rarely take anything seriously. He is a technological and scientific genius, having built the suit and his ARC core on his own. After becoming Iron Man, he has begun to train with SHIELD agents in basic hand-to-hand combat, and while he can be scrappy outside of his suit, he really needs it to stand up to the big threats alongside Captain America or the Hulk.

Recently, Stark's mansion was annihilated in a terrorist attack, but I left its stats as a superhero headquarters below anyways:

Stark Mansion (30)
Size: Large; Location: Urban; Condition: State-of-the-Art
Rooms (10/1): Garage ×2, Generator, Kitchen & Dining, Computer Lab, Personal Quarters, Specialist Lab (Engineering), Training Room (+2), Workshop

There we are, the billionaire philanthropist of the Marvel universe. Leave questions, comments, and superhero crossovers below.
