- "You go for the guts, I go for the glory."
- ―Iron Man[src]
Anthony "Tony" Stark is a billionaire industrialist and inventor. Tony is also the armored superhero known as Iron Man. His Ultimate incarnation differs from his mainstream counterpart, in that he was inspired to build his Iron Man suit when he was diagnosed with an illness that will kill him between six months and five years, and sought to become a superhero to avenge his family's name.
Tony is a billionaire playboy constantly hounded by Nick Fury, who believes Tony provides the vigilante Iron Man with his technology, when in reality he is Iron Man. Iron Man first turns down an offer to join the Avengers, but later signs up unofficially for moral purposes. The Avengers failed first mission leaves Tony trapped inside his suit, forcing the team to remove it and discover he is Tony. He uses the suit to defeat the Chitauri and the Hulk in the climax.
When Tony's red-and-gold suit is wrecked by Wakandan soldiers, he spends the rest of the adventure wearing the War Machine armor, his "new" favorite. He is injured in the final battle, near-death, and is revived by Thor's hammer, to which Stark replies "You really are a god".
