Born: May 29, 1970

World of the Powerless

Having killed Thanos and taken control of Earth-199999, Iron Man became Lord Stark and ushered in a dark age of fear and terror, where the Avengers and all other Super-Powered beings are deemed illegal and hunted down by him, the Stark Administration, and his Iron Legion[2]. In 2023, when Stark was just beginning to extend his tyranny to the entire universe, a young man named Shin Seigi rises up to defy the evil dictator, and frees the Avengers before taking on the fallen hero himself. Despite Iron Majin's vastly superior strength, Shin weathered his onslaught of attacks until his stolen Iron Patriot suit was destroyed, and was saved by Aka Red who made him into New Captain America. New Captain America then takes a team of heroes with him to raise an army of Super Sentai, Kamen Riders, and Metal Heroes to help the Avengers end Iron Majin's reign of terror[3]. Stark fought the Neo Revengers who stayed behind to resist the Administration, eliminating Maria Hill, Nebula, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Winter Soldier, Maria Hill, and Nick Fury with the assistance of Lord Drakkon, and later Agent Abrella and Bio Hunter Silva.

End of the Starks

By the beginning of the Battle of Starktopia 01 in April 2024, Tony Stark had lost the Infinity Stones and Gauntlet, but created a set of Dark Infinity Stones in anticipation of this, which allowed him to easily destroy GoZyuJin. DaiZyuJin, however, totally denounces Stark for his crimes and warns him that he will finally be punished by those he had oppressed for too long. Once the Avengers Sentai Alliance reaches the throne room, Stark and Drakkon fought their hardest to crush their enemies, with Stark disposing of Bruce Banner's last vial of serum and destroying Pepper and Rhodey's armors, but the heroes are eventually able to turn the tables[4].

Shin tells the tyrants that it's time to surrender and face the consequences, but Tony responds by putting Kiba Ranger in a full-nelson hold, and Drakkon does the same to Spider Man. Their attempt to use the captured heroes as leverage is foiled by their own hostages, so Tony vaporizes Drakkon in the ultimate show of his disrespect for Super Sentai, which sends Shin flying into an unstoppable fury. The New Captain America proceeded to brutally attack Tony Stark with maximum ferocity, and even with his lower body and right arm destroyed, Stark continued to resist in vain as Shin furiously called him out for his hypocrisy and landed blow after successive blow to the tyrant's face until his grotesque mechanical skull was exposed. Shin plunged his fist into Stark's chest, crushing his blackened metal heart, and then heavy heartedly showed the mutilated carcass to Pepper to drive home his point about her husband finally letting his hubris and ugliness get the best of him. Although the death of Tony at this point meant the full restoration of the real Iron Majin and its temporary destruction of the multiverse, the parasitic Devil-God loses its control over all existence and is finally destroyed by Mugen DaiZyuJin[4].

Post-mortem

Tony Stark's actions, despite the horrific damage they caused, opened the eyes of billions throughout the universe, and his death marked the end of the Stark family's influence on humanity. With Pepper also dead, Stark Industies being indicted and deactivated, and Morgan disowning her tarnished family name, the Stark bloodline is all but completely extinguished, but the universe is finally saved and ready to move on to a new age without Iron Man.

Some time later, Aka Red told another universe's version of Tony Stark and Dr. Strange about the events of the Super Infinity War, imploring them to be better people than their Earth-199999 counterparts.

Profile[]

Appearance[]

As Iron Majin, Tony Stark is consistently seen in his Mark 50 suit, but with purple triangular markings over and under the eye holes of the mask, which he got from his first fight with Shin. His eyes lack the pupils he had as a human, to indicate his “godhood”. It is also revealed, by the aforementioned battle, that Tony is now completely mechanical, save for his head until the Battle of Starktopia 01.[5]

When Tony starts using the Dark Infinity Stones, the Arc Reactor on his chest turns purple and the eyelids on the helmet glow red, with the rest of his body/"suit" adopting the burnt black default color patterns of his Play Arts Kai figure.

Personality[]

You come from a family of thieves and butchers, and like all guilty men, you try to rewrite your history, to forget all the lives the Stark family has destroyed.” - Ivan Vanko admonishing the Stark Legacy.

As Tony Stark, he's a rather egocentric, patronizing, pragmatic, womanizing, heavy-handed and flamboyant genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist. As Iron Man, he was a noble hero out to make amends for past mistakes and prevent his work from being grievously misused by terrorists and other evil-doers. His complex character has caused many to see him as either a flawed hero, others to view him as a villain, and others still as both. He has an abnormally low, if not nonexistent tolerance for his critics and intellectual inferiors, and whenever someone criticizes him for some morally dubious course of action, more often than not out of his fear that the world cannot survive without his guidance and philosophy of dirtying one’s hands to keep the world clean, Tony will stubbornly go great lengths to double down and prove it was for the greater good, no matter the cost to him or those around him. The fact that he allowed his PTSD from after the Battle of New York, combined with the fear that spurred him to create Ultron, to be warped into the attitude he displayed from Civil War until Endgame has even led many to view him as mentally ill.

Sadly, his increasingly controlling behavior led him to resent his own humanity and believe destroying any threat to his credibility was worth any heartbreaking cost, like giving himself over to Iron Majin’s will, effectively alienating any and all who wished to call him a friend.

“Don't compare me with Stark. He's a sickness!” ~ Ultron berating Ulysses Klaue for comparing him to Tony Stark.

As Lord Stark, and Iron Majin’s earthly vessel, however, he becomes a completely selfish and very ruthless, cynical, arrogant, condescending, elitist, self-righteous, self-entitled, blame-shifting, explosive-tempered, spiteful, intimidating, ego-maniacal living god of destruction who goes against everything Iron Man was meant to fight for. He will not rest until he eradicates all the Marvel and Toei Superheroes and becomes ruler of all creation. He enjoys his ill-acquired feeling of control, shamelessly mocking his enemies, and raining destruction on anything he sees an affront to himself and his personal glory. His hubris is so great, he would at times allow enemies to become powerful enough to think they can challenge him, and then humiliate the challenger in question in a lengthy battle that could/would seriously damage a city(for the sake of his extravagant theatrics) before finally killing said opponent.

Further playing on his past self’s already massive intellect and textbook narcissism, Lord Stark considers himself an omnipotent, tough-loving but benevolent god-king guiding mankind on the path to “emotional maturity”; he is apprehensive of people’s criticisms that expediting their evolution according to his liking is unethical, and unreasonably militant with his those who do not see eye to eye with him. Although he claims to want humanity to become the ruling dominant species of the universe for their eternal prosperity, it is still ultimately for his own selfish gain and out of his hatred of anyone who disapproves his actions. His preference to no longer be called “Tony” further shows his rejection his humanity, deeming that name a testament to his former “weakness”.

His disciplinary code is so petty and unforgiving, he brutally lashes out at or attacks anyone who calls him Iron Majin instead of Iron Man or Lord Stark, or otherwise chides him; he once killed one of his guards for making a pop-culture reference[6], and one of his technicians for the way he recoiled in response to Majin ruthlessly scolding him for a small mistake. Stark is so removed now from common morality, and obsessed with popularizing his warped beliefs, he unreasonably expects his subjects to obey and agree with him no matter how impractical his rules can get. He also has no problems with scaring people into apathy as long as they do nothing to oppose him, often drawing up wild scenarios and the potential consequences of taking matters into one’s own hands to hammer home his point.

In the ultimate display of the self-deluded egotism he had been accused of for most of his life, the Tyrant of Steel strictly believes his tyranny and disrespect for other people's rights and freedoms, excessively disciplinarian attitude, and treating his subjects little better than prisoners, slaves or second-class citizens in his own demented "fantasy-land" is perfectly justified as keeping them and the Earth safe and alive. While Stark called Red Hulk and Iron Maiden’s deaths a small price for victory, it was fairly clear that he never truly appreciated the contributions of any Tokuverse villains, not even the long-term assistance of Abrella, Silva, and especially Drakkon whom Stark personally blamed for the fall of his empire as he ungratefully executed him.

Tony's growing hatred for those who called him out for his obnoxious bull-headedness and self-righteousness became so great, that he lost all his better qualities by the Battle of Starktopia 01; even though he allowed the ASA to evacuate the citizens of Starktopia 01, Lord Stark would have gladly subjected them once more to a living death under his rule as his herd of "butt-monkeys" to lord over and satiate his egoism, and the only reason he did not send any of his forces to attack any other place on Earth during the final battle is so that humanity can watch him destroy the Alliance in its entirety on live broadcast. When he was on the verge of losing to the Alliance, he threw Lord Drakkon under the bus out and spent his final moments in life blindly hating and cursing Shin and everything he stands for as the New Captain America pummeled and obliterated the traitor[4].

Powers and Abilities[]

In addition to all the powers and abilities of every Iron Man suit Tony had constructed up to the Mark 50, as well as regeneration and far superior strength and durability, Lord Stark also uses the Infinity Stones. and his arc reactor glows the same color as the corresponding stone:

  • Reality/red: quickly/instantly reconstruct or deconstruct anything, defy the laws of physics
  • Space/blue: teleport himself or anything in his sight anywhere he chooses
  • Mind/yellow: control anyone's mind, even a sentient robot's, or put disturbing visions in the target's head
  • Time/green: reverse, slow down, or stop time, or increase his own speed
  • Soul/orange: drain anyone's life force, or revive anybody
  • Power/purple: increase his physical strength, or decrease that of his enemies
  • All together: Eliminate half of all life on Earth and 75% of all life throughout the MCU(except Earth-born humans), instantly (re)create the Iron Legion and reshape New York into Starktopia 01 (implied)
Lord Stark

Lord Stark, the Tyrant of Steel

When the Administration learned how to harness Quantum energy, Stark could use it in conjunction with the Reality, Space, and Time stones to go back in time and open the way to other dimensions(whether he wishes to go himself or send his workers/Legionites to retrieve something or someone for him), though Drakkon already gave him a means to send his Legionites into the Tokuverse.

When Lord Stark stripped the Infinity Stones of their negative energies to create the Dark Infinity Stones, he gained greater offensive and defensive power, at the cost of the individual powers of the real stones, the ability to harness Quantum energy and instantly rebuild the Iron Legion if their manual production is halted, and losing all his remaining sanity. It is presumed, because of this lack of the stones’ individual powers, that the Gauntlet would make no difference in the usage of the Dark Stones. This made him strong enough to easily destroy GoZyuJin on ground level, and Stark could have destroyed the entire Megazord Army in mere minutes if he so wanted.

As Shin was beating the traitor to death, Stark’s auto repair systems become utterly useless by the time he loses an arm and his legs. Though the Dark Stones failed to protect Stark from his demise, they accumulated copious amounts of additional negative energy from his endurance of Shin's attacks, which, when compounded by the negative energies already making up the true Iron Majin's being, created a power recoil that took away its immortality, instead of resetting the universe as Iron Majin intended; this recoil also destroyed the Dark Stones entirely, restoring the real Infinity Stones to normal.

Relationships[]

Friends[]

Pepper Potts

Despite the wholesale atrocities Tony Stark is committing, Pepper blindly clings to the hope that her (former) husband will realize how far he has fallen, even as Shin has to wrestle with the possibility that Tony may be already past saving. Before Shin's first attack on Iron Babel, Tony expected Pepper to instill an acceptance of his cruel actions into their daughter Morgan, and when both are swayed to Shin's cause, Iron Majin disowns them from the Stark family line and marks them as fugitives[3].

When Ironheart Rescue temporarily deserts the Shin Avengers, Stark expected her and Morgan understand that he must punish them out of his demented “love” for them if they are to be accepted back to his side, but after Rescue comes back to her teammates, it is unknown if he still held such hypocritical expectations.

Still, Pepper's pleas continued to fall on deaf ears, and Tony continued to disregard the grief that the drama between them is causing Morgan. Pepper failed to conquer her anxiety in time, so she attempted to commit suicide after Stark’s death at the hand of Shin, and though she was stopped, the true Iron Majin struck her down as an ultimate sign that the man she loved is gone for good[4]. Tony's refusal to change his mind even during their brief time in the dark subspace, however, causes Pepper to finally truly reject Tony and all the evil his bloodline symbolizes, and this helps the souls of all those Iron Majin vanquished to resist and dispel the power of the Dark Infinity Stones, restoring themselves and reality to normal.

Wayne Keener

For all his firm belief in responsibility and sacrifice, Wayne failed to see the hypocrisy of his hero worship directed at Stark, whose own sense of the ideal was slowly being twisted in the course of his first ten years as Iron Man; this continued romanticism of Tony’s perversion of patriotism created a rift between Wayne and his children, (especially his eldest son Shin), and soon also his wife. Even as his youngest son Kibou died, his daughter Ai was arrested, and Shin left home after breaking Wayne's prized Iron Man figure[7] followed shortly by Ayaka, Wayne tried to convince himself that Stark was in the right and remained passive in the suffering of more old friends of his who shared Shin's disgust at his own father and alienated him for idolizing the narcissistic Stark.

Eventually, Wayne could no longer bear the sacrifices that come with being on Tony Stark's side and chose to grow past his misguided devotion to Iron Man, earning his son's forgiveness by sacrificing himself for what the Avengers Sentai Alliance stands for. Stark felt betrayed, but a dying Wayne rightfully insisted that he and his “king” both betrayed Shin and his family.

Lord Drakkon

As similar fallen hero, Drakkon established an alliance with Iron Majin to help him stop Shin from raising his superhero army, admitting his hatred of the Super Sentai/Power Rangers to be no different from Tony's newfound hatred of the Avengers and superheroes in general. Stark agreed with Drakkon's use of resurrected Super Sentai enemies as expendable pawns, but only to make their attacks look like direct consequences of the Shin Avengers venturing into the Tokuverse in order to use the resulting mutual damage for the benefit of Stark's self-centered narrative.

But knowing how Iron Man previously acted against the wishes of his friends, Shin Seigi refuses to stop warning Drakkon of the almost certainty of Iron Majin turning on him, in which Shin is ultimately justified. With Lord Stark being ultimately ungrateful to Drakkon’s contributions, deeming them worthless and even accused him of causing the Avengers Sentai Alliance to smite the administration, the Tyrant of Steel ruthlessly fired at Drakkon in the heart and head simultaneously in the ultimate show of the dictator’s undying hatred against Super Sentai and their entire legacy.

Agent Abrella

The Dekarangers' old enemy becomes Iron Majin's weapons supplier and business partner, citing that Tony Stark is not the only one who has been called the "Merchant of Death". He is willing to pay the evil alien any price for his contraband goods, deeming money as being no object in his quest for ultimate rulership, and even respected Abrella for his similarities to Tony before his capture by the Ten Rings; But given his hatred of aliens, this is not to say Lord Stark had any problems with Abrella meeting his end once more.

Bio Hunter Silva

The robotic assassin blindly pledges his destructive abilities to Majin's insane quest for supremacy out of their mutual disdain for Super Sentai, accepting the Tyrant of Steel's orders to cause havoc at the New York City Subway without second thought or remorse. Even as Tony praised his newest subordinate for Vision's death, Silva simply stated he was doing what he was made to do, yet midway in the Battle of Starktopia 01, Iron Majin did not care that Silva had been annihilated, and this lack of care also extends to the similarly deceased Abrella, and Red Hulk, although in Iron Maiden's case, he might rebuild her out of favoritism of her over Silva.

General Thunderbolt

Now that the morally corrupt general serves Tony Stark as vice president of the Stark Administration, their relationship has strengthened significantly, and Thunderbolt's refusal to let his familial ties interfere with his "duties" anymore has led Tony to applaud him for his decision to use his daughter Betty Ross as a bargaining chip to make Bruce Banner return the super soldier serum vials he stole from the Administration, even if the plan itself failed. Whatever reservations Thaddeus may have had about becoming the thing he hates most in order to destroy the Shin Avengers, Tony insisted, bluntly, that doing the same thing was the only way to destroy Thanos(and that making these kinds of sacrifices is the whole point of being Iron Man, regardless of whosoever reviles him for it), effectively sending the hate-filled general to his demise.

Iron Maiden

Once his A.I. servant in the same manner of J.A.R.V.I.S., F.R.I.D.A.Y. is now a cold, calculating founding member of the Stark Administration who continues to obey Stark's will, albeit in demented ways like harshly disciplining HyperVision to forsake all sentiment and be just as ruthless as her. Even if he can and wants to rebuild Iron Maiden after her death, Stark only cares for her as nothing more than a sexual object for his satisfaction and a subordinate to impose his will.

The True Iron Majin

It has been implied that during his gruesome final showdown with Thanos, Tony finally recognized the evil force within him and gladly sold his soul for the power to destroy the Mad Titan, thinking this sacrifice of his morals was worth the victory and Earth's continued survival. Due to his already dangerous narcissism, and steadily furthered corruption by Iron Majin's recompleted essence, Tony refused to realize he is being used by the ancient Devil God, just as he himself used Peter Parker for his own benefit (if subconsciously at first). Indeed, Tony genuinely believed his continued existence and rule over mortals was the only way to keep Iron Majin from inflicting its horrific wrath on the Multiverse, the only agency the evil god allowed Stark to retain due to Stark’s cynicism and firm belief regarding his own actions.

Thankfully Iron Majin ultimately failed in its true goals, and its only lasting victory was molding Tony Stark into a permanent symbol of shame and dishonor to humanity and to superheroes everywhere.

Bully Maguire

Lord Stark had an on/off relationship with Bully, often self-righteously denigrating the corrupt wall crawler for reckless acts on par with, if not worse than those of the disgraced former Avenger.

Enemies[]

Thanos

Even with the Mad Titan meeting his gruesome end, Stark continues to vilify Thanos, not ever realizing his actions as Iron Majin are even worse than the one he personally and hypocritically held responsible for the darkness in Tony's own heart. Iron Majin frequently demonizes the Mad Titan as a fraud who presented his own faux-religious front and took whatever he wanted, and will not hesitate to kill anyone who feels that Thanos’ actions were justifiable as a small price for salvation. Stark even went as far as to also vilify Gamora(taunting Star Lord about her in the final battle) and Nebula(ordering her death), regardless that they both severed their ties with Thanos.

However, while Shin and Tony both agree that Thanos was in the wrong and deserved to be punished, Shin says he would have at least tried to understand Thanos' motivations first, whereas Tony outright wanted kill Thanos for “being in his head” for so long. Ultimately, Stark and Thanos were both, at best, deeply flawed, emotionally tortured souls who felt that enduring the hate they get is an inevitable consequence of their misguided actions, yet ended up becoming sacrificial lambs to Iron Majin's master plan.

Shin Seigi

Death of a False God

The false god-king reaps what he sows.

Lord Stark vehemently despised Shin from the bottom of his cold, twisted heart for being the idealized, selfless hero Tony Stark could not be on a consistent basis, and for idolizing Captain America and Super Sentai over Iron Man. Every heinous deed the Tyrant of Steel committed against the Shin Avengers and all the trauma he caused them, especially their leader, was born of Tony's selfish and cynical desire to abolish the traditional moral sensibilities Shin lives by and prove that they no longer work in today's world. He rejected every single chance Shin and the Alliance had given Tony to repent, and, late in the Battle of Starktopia 01, even went as far as claim that he would rather die the ugliest death imaginable than admit he was wrong and live the rest of his life in a universe where his belief system can no longer reign supreme.

Killing the tyrant was an incredibly cathartic moment for Shin, who mourned the fact that Tony ultimately broke his promise to Yinsen by wasting his life tormenting any and all who disagree with him and his ways; Shin showed no pleasure in the act as well as a mix of emotions from immense sorrow for all the bloodshed and heartbreak it took to expose the folly of Tony's pride to bittersweet relief that everyone is free from hero-turned-villain's evil tyranny. Still, Shin chose to let each and every individual have the right to make their own judgement of Tony Stark and his family, on the condition that they take what was learned and never repeat the Starks’ horrible mistakes.

Steve Rogers

As the ethically idealistic foil to Tony, Rogers tried his hardest to warn him about the true fallibility of things like the Sokovia Accords, no matter how badly Tony rejected such wisdom. Sadly, with his transformation into Lord Stark, his personal grievances with his former comrade exploded into pure hatred, and Tony murdered Captain America in cold blood[3]. His spite for Rogers is so great now, he declared all Captain America fans criminals who deserve to be outcast, imprisoned for life or even killed.

When Steve was brought back for the Battle of Starktopia 01, Tony refused to let his old friend dissuade him from his evil ways: he mocked Rogers and his moral code by insisting that Howard Stark would approve of Tony's dictatorship, and that Maria would learn to approve as well. When Stark tried to kill Peter Parker and showed zero remorse for persecuting the Shin Avengers in his last moments, a heartbroken Steve finally had to accept that his former friend is finally beyond reasoning; after Iron Majin’s final defeat, Rogers noted he was at least slightly grateful to Shin for sparing him from having to put Tony out of his misery himself.

Thor

Tony regarded his learning the Asgardians as the beginning of the unraveling of the "invincible legend" Tony sought to build around himself. In a world of Gods, aliens, and magic, where he can no longer be seen as the only "god amongst men", Tony became swamped in fear that if he can no longer be allowed to do things his way, then he will ultimately fail to protect the world. After becoming Iron Majin, Tony would shamelessly flaunt his god complex at the expense of Thor's profound disappointment, so the God of Thunder decries his former ally-turned into a fraudulent god-king as a grim exaggeration of Thor's own former self before banishment and vows to take the Tyrant of Steel down.

Bruce Banner

Despite his assistance in creating Ultron, Banner finally lost almost all respect for Tony after he murders Steve Rogers and T'Challa and consolidates his own dystopian perversion of Ultron's original intended purpose. Ashamed of his involvement with Stark and the consequences of it, Bruce started to feel that perhaps Tony was the real monster all along, and couldn't bear to accept this failure and move on unless Iron Majin and General Thunderbolt are both brought down for their crimes.

T'Challa

Iron Majin labelled the King of Wakanda as a traitor for protecting Steve Rogers and executed him in cold blood, but not without T'Challa calling Tony out for almost killing Bucky in an act of choosing the same path T'Challa ultimately rejected[3]. As a consequence, the heartbroken Queen Mother regarded Stark as the enemy of Wakanda(privately out of fear of retaliatory violence), feeling her son will never find peace until Stark is punished for taking him away. T’Challa would be avenged when Shin Seigi destroyed the egomaniacal ex-Avenger.

Peter Parker

Now viewing Tony Stark as a traitor to everything he taught him, a horrified Parker admits he's fed up with Tony's attitude and joins Shin's team on the spot, brokenheartedly saying he is the one who wanted Tony to be better[3]. This also made Peter realize that the real reason Tony took away the Starktech suit after the Staten Ferry Incident was to try to discourage Peter from making any real effort to learn the more shameful truths about his mentor from Adrian Toomes in particular; things that Toomes briefly alluded to but didn’t make sense to Peter until it was too late.

Peter's willingness to listen to Shin over Tony, due to Shin's far more likeable and open demeanor has fostered an intense jealousy in Lord Stark, and that jealousy played an enormous role in Stark finally choosing to cross the line and attempt to murder Peter just to spite Shin, a mistake that cost the tyrant his own life. But Parker still felt grief at having to help destroy someone he once looked up to, respectfully retiring both the Starktech and Iron Spider suits and opting for his own new Spidey suit to symbolize his cutting ties with the fallen Avenger.

Shuri

Her affiliation with Shin Seigi has given Iron Majin incentive to claim to Shuri that he enjoyed every second he spent destroying her brother T’Challa and disparaging his beliefs. It is also speculated and even very possible that Stark harbored immense jealousy towards Shuri for being way smarter than him, even before his fall into madness. She is perhaps the only Shin Avenger who didn't visibly shed tears for the betrayer's demise, if not outright reveled in it.

Groot

Iron Majin exploits the ambiguity of Groot's extremely limited vocabulary to silence him like an obnoxiously foul-mouthed child. Groot implicitly expressed conflicting emotions, like Shin, after the Tyrant of Steel is killed, but ultimately found peace knowing that Stark is no longer a threat to his or Shin's friends and families.

Doctor Strange

Despite having had a common enemy in Thanos and a similar over-reliance on amorality, Stark betrays Strange after the death of the Mad Titan and brands the Masters of the Mystic Arts as enemies of the new world order out of his desire to purge all magic from the face of the Earth. With so many of his colleagues being murdered by the Administration, Strange became extremely driven to destroy Stark at all costs, just as Stark prioritized killing Thanos to restore his own glory over healing the rifts he created. This hatred of Stark even extended to Vision, whom Strange let die pointlessly despite the android's genuine remorse and Thor’s explicit command to save him, leading the sorcerer to be ostracized by both sides for a time, until Strange eventually gave up his misguided methods to defeating the Tyrant of Steel for the sake of the Alliance.

Natasha Romanoff

In the Super Infinity War, Stark was not above emotionally torturing her with painful reminders of her support for the hypocrisy that tore the Avengers apart. Granted, Nat proclaimed she is glad that she finally sees him as the misogynistic jerk he presented himself to be when they first met, and that she regrets unwittingly enabling his drunken misbehavior over ten years ago.

Clint Barton

Hawkeye was already disgusted with Tony’s actions in Civil War, decrying him as a delusional futurist who expects everyone to take all the good about the Starks and none of the bad. This was essentially made worse during the Superhero Infinity War when the Administration arrested Barton and separated him from his family, and more so when Lord Stark spitefully claimed he never cared about Barton’s feelings or felt grateful for his help in any battle.

James Rhodes

Once the Tyrant of Steel’s best friend, Rhodey now fully understands the depths of other people’s hatred of Tony, Stark Industries, and the government alike, vowing never to let his professionalism blind him again as he fights to atone for the sins he helped his superiors and former friend commit.

During their final battle, Rhodey was visibly unsettled at the sight of Lord Stark crushing his and Pepper’s helmets as a symbol of his disrespect for their own personal strengths, and distraught when his old friend sadistically stomps at a downed Rhodes’ kneecaps and accuses him of being a traitor to his country undeserving of the power of an Iron Man suit. These actions left Rhodey emotionally broken and considering self-imposed house arrest, if not official imprisonment.

Nick Fury

Tony Stark had his misgivings about Nick Fury and SHIELD since the beginning of his tenure as Iron Man, yet neither truly had the moral high ground to condemn the other for the cold pragmatism they mutually indulged in. Even the lie about Phil Coulson's death to motivate the Avengers no longer mattered on Tony's end when he became Iron Majin, and he was quite pleased with Drakkon's murder of the SHIELD director.

Super Sentai

Tony Stark had always frowned up this long line of multi-colored heroes and their fans (perhaps more so than the heroes themselves) for their "overreliance" on the power of friendship, something a staunch realist like Tony himself believes is a cheap ticket to victory and a grievous offense to his and his father’s way of thinking. But it was Tony’s turn to Lord Stark that made him truly hate Super Sentai, who returned the contempt in kind for his war on their legacy and their values. For his incessant and self-righteous persecution of them, Aka Renger views Stark as another King of Terror, just like his old enemy Black Cross Fuhrer, and an insult to all Red Rangers and Warriors that needs to be stopped no matter what.

He also shamelessly dismisses the Super Sentai's mecha as overgrown children's toys (and, more hypocritically, as expendable tools of the Super Sentai), particularly taking sadistic pleasure in destroying GoZyuJin, and talking so cruelly to DaiZyuJin as if he were the false god playing with others' emotions. Understandably incensed by Stark’s destructiveness and blasphemous displays, DaiZyuJin pointedly forewarns Stark (and by extension, Iron Majin) that misusing the Infinity Stones so heartlessly would be the villains’ undoing.

During the final battle Stark further expressed his hate for Super Sentai by smashing Tyranno Ranger’s visor in perfect sync with Drakkon smashing Dragon Ranger’s, and finally took that hate to its apex by murdering Drakkon. This act of supreme disrespect towards everything Super Sentai/Power Rangers means to Shin is what finally warranted him to take Tony Stark’s life.

Kamen Riders

Despite his hate for the Super Sentai extending to the Kamen Riders as well, Iron Majin was willing to have Drakkon manipulate one of them into fighting the Shin Avengers. Stark was hoping to appeal to the grey morality of the likes of Tsukasa Kadoya and have him kill the Shin Avengers, but Decade realizing his error and spreading awareness of the Administration causes them to give up completely on making any more Riders fight the Avengers Sentai Alliance for them. He admits to hating the Showa Era Kamen Riders the most, especially Takeshi Hongo.

List of Crimes (according to Shin)[]

Before becoming Iron Majin

  • Being the embodiment of wholesale irresponsibility and post-9/11 jingoism.
  • War Profiteering and enabling war crimes.
  • Doing business with and protecting black arms dealers like Ulysses Klaue.
  • Abusing his technology for fame and fortune.
  • Wanting to force humanity to mature according to his (and to an extent his father’s) liking.
  • Harboring a terrible lust to be unconditionally feared and respected by all.
  • Drunkenly endangered party guests.
  • Recklessly provoked individuals into becoming enemies of Iron Man, who’d often cause death and destruction to spite him.
  • Created Ultron behind the Avengers' back, indirectly causing mass deaths and destruction.
  • Signed the Sokovia Accords behind the Avengers' backs without first debating it or the potential consequences with them.
  • Using the controversies surrounding the Sokovia Accords Incident and Wanda Maximoff to justify his grudge against her, and having Vision (more or less) intern her like a prisoner on Tony's behalf.
  • Putting small-time workers out of business, causing most of them to turn to crime to support their families.
  • Supporting government corruption, conspiracies and hypocritical abuses of power.
  • Bribing people with money or expensive material things to sign the accords or otherwise support government regulation of superheroes.
  • His overall undervaluation of Peter Parker, such as being a condescending snobby father figure to him, lying to him about Captain America’s situation in Civil War, self-righteously policing him, and basically grooming him to become his poster boy to sell Stark’s personal beliefs to the younger generation. Also, Tony is indirectly responsible for the Vulture's own crimes against Peter.
  • Lobbying to make spilling a ‘26 Maccallan a war crime punishable by immediate death. He successfully did it after becoming Lord Stark
  • Trying to kill Bucky Barnes against Steve Rodgers' wishes, despite knowing that Bucky was being mind-controlled into killing Howard and Maria Stark.
  • Indirect reckless endangerment of the universe's population by challenging Thanos without first informing Steve Rogers. (This led to the Snap in the prime timeline which killed 50% of the MCU's population, making Tony guilty of (indirectly) enabling intergalactic genocide)
  • Slaughtering Thanos without mercy and desecrated the corpse in the MvSS timeline. Even if Shin agreed Thanos deserved to die, let alone in such brutal fashion, the latter still should have been put on trial first to confess his crimes.

After becoming Lord Stark

  • High treason against humanity and the very concept of superheroism.
  • Frequent abuse of power, especially the Infinity Stones, like destroying more than half of all life in the universe.
  • Tyranny and oppression, including the commodification of individual lives and imposing slave labor on (petty) offenders and children.
  • Repeated counts of blackmail, intimidation, (sexual) assault, battery, war/hate crimes, hate speech, coercion and bribery.
  • Enforcing specifically designed institutional curriculums to indoctrinate children for his personal benefit.
  • Reinstating prima nocta exclusively for himself.[8]
  • Legalizing and glorifying child abuse, including coercing Ramonda to disown Shuri under gunpoint, and grounding Shuri forever.
  • Putting Peter Parker under false house arrest and being mean to him on a much more consistent basis.
  • Psychological/emotional abuse of Peter Parker and Pepper Potts and committing adultery against the latter.
  • Neglecting Morgan and expecting Pepper to force his cynical beliefs on her.
  • Encouraging needless assault, battery and harassment of his critics, and making it required by law.
  • (Deliberate) endangerment or gross negligence of Starktopia citizens during his fights with dissidents and shifting the blame entirely on his enemies.
  • Enabling inhumane treatment of inmates and juvenile offenders.
  • Historic censorship of sources that demonized or otherwise criticized him, his father, and any facet of the Stark legacy.
  • Overt historical revisionism to demonize Steve Rogers and glorify himself and Howard Stark above all other humans.
  • Mocking and trivializing various ethical groups, faiths, creeds and religions.
  • Uprooting the Wakandan royal family by killing T’Challa without trial, illegally impeaching Ramonda, and abducting Shuri.
  • Destabilizing Wakanda’s economy and misappropriating it’s breakthroughs and resources to maintain his technological superiority.
  • Allowing use of excessive/lethal force on peaceful protesters.
  • Liberal abuse of the “DARVO” maneuver(Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender).
  • Letting a Legionite kill Kibou and Grace. Although both victims were later revived, the mere ordering for their deaths was still especially heinous.
  • Planting illicit items on his protesters to have them sent to jail.
  • Persecuting and smearing other superheroes, especially Steve Rogers and Shin. This included melting down any Power Rangers(for example)-related merchandise and hateful speech against Super Sentai / Power Rangers fans and supporters.
  • Banning the sale and distribution of any movies, games, books and any other media that do not glorify or promote his personal beliefs.
  • Giving preferential treatment to people who agree with his beliefs and tyrannous actions, and treating those who don't like second-class citizens or law-breakers. For example, he would criminalize those who criticized the Accords, or defund any organizations whose interests and beliefs do not align with his own, especially non-profit ones.
  • Harshly punishing petty/non violent criminals while letting the more dangerous ones go free long enough to justify his oppressive extremism.
  • (Mass/attempted) murder and destruction, willingly, wantonly, directly, and/or indirectly(depending on the occasion).
  • Mass false imprisonment and invasion of privacy under the excuse of promoting global security.

  • Putting the children of his enemies and critics in juvenile detention or through forced conversion therapy.
  • Harboring and employing fugitives originating from the Tokuverse, as well as Drakkon from the World of the Coinless.
  • Plotting to purge all magical, extraterrestrial, and supernatural beings and elements from the Earth for tainting his vision of pure realism, often at the expense of the environment and notable landmarks.
  • Mass violation of civil/constitutional/individual rights.
  • Plotting intergalactic/interdimensional invasions.
  • Conspiracy to enslave the multiverse.
  • Hoarding and abusing Quantum Energy for his own gain.

  • Ordering a racially motivated attempted genocide on the Japanese during the Battle of Starktopia 01.
  • Letting a Legionite kill Wayne Keener.
  • Destroying GoZyuJin with the intent to kill Gai Ikari in the process, although Gai survives this attempt on his life.

Trivia[]

  • Iron Man is the second hero-turned villain to be given the title of "The Great Betrayer", along with Tyrannus DracoRex.
  • His title of "Lord Stark" not only serves to level him closer to his Tokuverse analogue Lord Drakkon, it is also an allusion to Eddard Stark from Game of Thrones.
  • His Iron Majin persona is essentially an "MCU version" of Superior Iron Man, and is conceptually similar to Sigma, who is himself similar to Ultron. Those two, appropriately made up another similar villain named Ultron Sigma in Marvel VS Capcom Infinite.
    • With the revelation that Tony was just the host of the real Iron Majin, the Superior Iron Man moniker can finally be officially applied to Tony himself, at least in secondary sources.
  • GokaiWhite made Tony Stark the main villain of Marvel VS Super Sentai because he hated Tony so much for his actions in the latter half of the MCU's Infinity Saga(for reasons such as creating Ultron, antagonizing Captain America in Civil War, viciously scolding Peter Parker for things Tony is(and has been) guilty of, and finally allowing his hatred of Thanos to spur him to recklessly challenge the Mad Titan, which led to the Snap that killed half of the universe's population), he considered both Iron Man and Thanos the real villains of the Infinity Saga in a yin-and-yang fashion. In MvSS, Tony never turned good again, and he has gone on to become one of the most irredeemably evil villains GokaiWhite has ever conceived.
    • A fundamental facet of this development is to present GokaiWhite's symbolic "ultimate dream showdown" between the Power Rangers who taught him to cherish the values of friendship and teamwork, vs Iron Man who essentially spat in the face of those values, seeing them (and eventually even the Rangers themselves) as taboo and offensive to his personal glory.
  • Iron Man and Thanos(their MCU counterparts, at least) have been described as symbols of "protection through oppression" and 'salvation through annihilation", much like how Zero and Sigma from Mega Man X symbolized the idea that "nothing is absolute"[10].
    • Shin and Iron Majin have the same japanese voices of Zero and Sigma respectively.
      • In the Japanese script, even the Ninningers acknowledge that Lord Stark/Iron Majin's voice is same as Gengetsu Kibaoni.
  • His killings of other villains and highly powerful beings in the MCU like Dormammu, Khonshu, Kang the Conqueror(‘s variants), the High Evolutionary, Tiamut, and Arishem effectively prevents the events of any post-Phase 3 movies or projects from happening in the Earth-199999(S) continuity: For example, Quinten Beck / Mysterio's death prevents the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home and No Way Home, and since the Avengers never went back in time in the MvSS continuity, it would appear that Loki's Disney + series does not happen either.
    • Furthermore, Stark eliminated all those villains only for his own selfish reasons like showing off his power and buying peoples' loyalty.
  • Iron Man’s turn into Lord Stark was retroactively first foreshadowed by Yinsen's voicover in the ending of the video game version of the first Iron Man film[11]. He also proved Ivan Vanko and Ultron correct about their respective views on Tony Stark.
  • His cyclical practice of paying Agent Abrella to start up crime so Iron Majin can stomp it out is borrowed from Mitch Conner(and by extension, The Coon's) evil plan in South Park: The Fractured But Whole.[12]
    • Like Iron Majin, The Coon is also a selfish, hypocritical villain who wants all the glory.
    • Tony's appearance and(in especially MvSS) his desire to impose his own perversion of "heroism" on the world are also quite closely emulated by Akira Konoe in Persona 5 Strikers, although Konoe was legitimately more tragic and accepted defeat. Lord Stark, on the other hand, ultimately rejected redemption.
  • Iron Man's turn to villainy in MvSS should also be seen as an expression of current popular sentiment that the MCU began to decline significantly in quality after Avengers: Endgame; a sentiment which in and of itself can also be a metaphorical example of the idea of "either dying a hero or living long enough to become a villain"[13]. He is basically an allegory for the MCU Iron Man if he were infected by the woke agenda.
