|Bios - Iron Man/Tony Stark
Voiced by: Marc Worden
Tony Starkís revolutionary ideas made Stark Industries one of the most profitable and thriving businesses on the planet. When he began planning to raise an ancient Chinese city from the ground he irked the companyís board of directors for offering this expensive service free of charge. The idea also caused protests from a group of supposed Chinese terrorists called The Jade Dragons as they believed resurrecting the ancient city would fulfil an ancient prophecy that foretold the return of The Mandarin, the emperor of China's darkest and most violent dynasty.
Upon travelling to China, Tony was attacked on his way to the ruins and was critically injured in an explosion that greatly damaged his heart. Saved by his captures and placed in a machine created by Lee Cheen which acted as a pacemaker. After he and Rhodie managed to streamline it, Lee Cheen told Tony of the prophecy and the impending return of The Mandarin and Wong Chu killed him out of spite, in an attempt to inspire Tony to work quicker to destroy the foundations which raised the fallen city. After initially complying with the Jade Dragonís request, Tony and Rhodie instead began creating a suit of armour from which they could attempt to escape there captures clutches. With help from Li Mei, Tony donned his armour and he and Rhodie escaped and flew back to their plane. Upon landing on American soil they were promptly arrested for selling arms to ĎChinese terroristsí The Jade Dragons before they managed to escape from the SHIELD agents. With a little help from Pepper, Tony and Rhodie managed to sneak back into Tonyís private lab in which he revealed that the armour wasnít something he devised in China, he had a full Hall Of Armour, a vast arsenal of armours designed for every need Ė space travel, deep sea travel etc.
He then jetted off to stop The Elementals from reclaiming The Mandarinís rings and resurrecting The Mandarin. He managed to defeat all but one of The Elementalís before returning to Stark Industries without the rings.
He then met up with Li Mei again and travelled with her back to China, finally managing to defeat the last Elemental Warrior. To his horror, he then learned that Li Mei was the final part of the prophecy and that her body would be used as a vessel for The Mandarin to return. He then thought The Mandarinís dragon whilst Li Mei resurrected the villain. He attempted to get through to Li Mei and tell her that she didnít have to fulfil the prophecy but it was too late. Upon The Mandarinís defeat, Li Mei too passed away.
He returned to Stark Enterprises and revealed that he was now the majority shareholder. After handing the reigns of the company over to his Father, they agreed to work together and fired the annoying board of directors.
