#ComicBytes: Five worst things which Iron Man has doneLast updated on Mar 02, 2019, 02:30 am
Iron Man is one of the most iconic Marvel characters. He is a founding member of the Avengers.
Tony Stark upholds justice in the world with the help of his cutting edge armor.
However, over the years in comics, Iron Man has strayed from the light, often with seemingly good intentions and done some horrible deeds.
Read five worst things Iron Man has done.
Iron Man faked his own death
Iron Man has long struggled with alcoholism in the comics.
This often led to crippling consequences in being a hero and running Stark Enterprises.
In the comics, Stark faked his death and handed over command of his business empire to his best friend James Rhodes.
Rhodes, who was broken up over Stark's death, was deeply betrayed when he found out Stark had faked it.
Iron Man exiled Hulk, didn't think about latter's feelings
One of the coldest acts Iron Man ever pulled off was the exiling of Hulk.
Having deemed the green rage monster too dangerous to be allowed to live on earth, a new group of superpowered characters that included Iron Man plotted to have the Hulk to an abandoned planet.
They tricked him into a spaceship without sparing a thought for his feelings.
Iron Man became the conqueror of the world
In the Exiles series of comics, we see Iron Man as a force of evil rather than a force of good.
He manipulated the world's economy to ensure that the humans entered into a war with the mutants.
His hope after triggering this war was the thinning of the mutant population.
In their absence, Stark became the ruler of the world.
Iron Man turned against his own friends in Civil War
Civil War saw Iron Man and Captain America pick opposing sides regarding government control over superheroes.
While the merits of their argument can be debated, Stark did some really villainous things during this time.
Not only did he join government soldiers to hunt his fellow team-mates but also got Spider-Man to unveil his mask in public and created a Thor clone to kill Goliath.
Iron Man gave Daredevil brain damage to conceal his plan
Stark once released a smartphone app allowing people to use the Extremis 3.0 virus to change their bodies.
However, it turned out the app was on a trial period and Stark demanded a hundred dollars per day to keep using his app.
He also gave Daredevil brain damage so his plan could not be revealed beforehand.
This is Iron Man at his most evil!
