The world of Tony Stark of Earth-5012 was ravaged in a war with Titannus. Many heroes died as a result, with Stark becoming a more violent individual as a result of the losses. At some point, he became opposed to Reed Richards - his words imply that Richards did something that resulted in several deaths. Adopting an armor that resembled Doctor Doom, he killed the Human Torch after the Torch damaged his face.[citation needed]

He was eventually sent to the 'main' Marvel Universe by Richards, for reasons unknown (Stark commented that it was a neat way for Richards to get rid of him without killing him, but the meaning of this is unclear). The Fantastic Four and Dr. Strange confronted who they thought to be the returning Dr. Doom. However, he seemed surprised that they were all alive and revealed himself to be Tony Stark, escaping by use of a device that temporarily negated the FF's powers.[citation needed]

Posing as the real Iron Man, he obtained a number of devices and planned to use the mutant Paul Patterson to power a portal.[citation needed]

The unlikely duo of Spider-Man and X-23 assisted Captain America and Black Widow in stopping him.[citation needed]

Stark was placed in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody alongside the LMD of Diamondback. His body somehow adapted to the sedatives used. He attacked the agents watching him, then activated the LMD, coercing it to help. He then took her apart to build himself a new suit of armor.[citation needed]

With the new armor, he went on a rampage, taking on the New Avengers. Freedom Ring and Crusader (Skrull) also responded. Freedom Ring and Captain America were able to defeat him at the cost of Freedom Ring's life.[citation needed]


Seems to have some type of cybernetic enhancement. Armor provides:

  • Flight
  • Repulsors
  • Uni-beam
  • Electrical shock
  • Power dampeners (counteracted the FF's powers)
  • Sonics
  • Morphable alloy
