The playboy billionaire and the epitome of scientific intelligence, Tony Stark is one of the powerful and influential superheroes of the comic book and cinematic world. His cinematic appearance in 2008 had a great impact on the comic book fans and his real appearance fascinated the whole world. Whatever he does, he always wants to protect the world.
“Everything I’ve done, everything I’ll do today, everything I’ll ever do, I do to protect this world. Someone once told me that with great power comes great responsibility. That’s usually thought of as a lesson for children. A simple injunction to do the right thing. But there’s nothing simple about it. When I put on this armor, I took on more power than any human was ever intended to have… and maybe more responsibility than my heart can truly bear. But today… I will do my job. I will protect you. No matter what it takes…” says Stark.
