Tony Stark and his heroic counterpart, Iron Man, have been one of the most important parts of the MCU since it’s creation. Here we look at 15 of his greatest moments.
Tony Stark is easily the most popular character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sure, the cool suits of armor help, but Iron Man isn’t what makes him so beloved. Tony Stark started as just an arrogant billionaire who made weapons for the United States military.
After an unfortunate accident involving one of his missiles, Stark swore off making armaments. This was the beginning of what made Tony Stark a great character. He developed layers to his personality. While he was still confident in his abilities, he wasn’t as narcissistic anymore. He learned that the world doesn’t revolve around him and set out to protect it and the people he cared about.
Robert Downey Jr.’s time as Tony Stark may be coming to an end. At the very least, he more than likely won’t be the Iron Man we’ve known. He’s been the lead character in the MCU for over ten years and it’s time for some new blood to take reins. The MCU is in great hands. Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange are going to lead the way and take the franchise to new and different heights. However, before we say goodbye to Tony Stark, let’s look back at his 15 best moments.
The following list contains moments from Avengers: Endgame. If you haven’t seen Endgame and you don’t want spoilers, I suggest bookmarking this article for later.
