Stark Tower in the Ultimate Universe

In the Ultimate Universe, the Stark Tower is the residency of Tony Stark, and Thor and Jane Foster.


New Ultimate Universe (Earth-6160)[]

On Earth-6160, Stark Tower served as the headquarters of the North American Union corporation Stane/Stark Industries. The corporation was led by its co-founders, Howard Stark and Obadiah Stane, and was headquartered in Manhattan, New York.[1]

For a brief period, the tower served as a refuge for Iron Lad and his allies.[2] The Maker's Council orchestrated the destruction of the tower and surrounding blocks through the hijacking of a Stane/Stark weaponized orbital station, placing the blame for the incident on the shoulders of the young Stark. In the aftermath of the attack, a considerable number of buildings were destroyed in the vicinity of the epicenter. Among the casualties were May Parker and Norman Osborn, the CEO of Oscorp Industries, along with his wife Emily.[2][3][4][5]


Marvel Animated Universe (Earth-12041)[]

Avengers Tower from Marvel's Avengers Assemble Season 3 25 001

Avengers Tower's design appears very similar to the Stark Tower of Earth-199999 and it's later redesigns. The building had an underground basement that contains old Avengers' items, such as trophies, suits and equipment. The Tower served as the team's main base from very early after Avengers Mansion was destroyed, up to the point where Ultron destroyed it and they had to find a new one.[6]

At some point in the future, the tower gets rebuilt and is eventually turned to the Avengers museum, displaying items and scenes from their history, both real and virtual.[7]

The rebuilt of the tower was proven true as it was recreated by the Beyonder on Battleworld in the Egyptia domain. The tower remained even when Battleworld was undone and returned to being the Avengers main base again.[8]

Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999)[]

Stark Tower from Avengers Age of Ultron 0001

Avengers Tower in Earth-199999

In this reality, Stark Tower is a high rise building towering over Manhattan located at 200 Park Avenue, where the MetLife Building stands in Earth-1218. Tony Stark maintains a New York residence there with Pepper Potts, and the top ten floors are reportedly taken up with many technological research and development. The entire building is self sustainable, being powered by an arc reactor, and its electronic systems are maintained by J.A.R.V.I.S..

The tower became the focal point of a battle when Loki and Erik Selvig set up a portal generator on the roof and opened a dimensional rift to an army of Chitauri warriors waiting on the other side. Heavy fighting caused extensive damage to the upper floors during the attack leaving the only letter to remain from the Stark logo being the "A", as a deliberate nod to the signature "A" from the Avengers title.

Three years later, Stark reused the surviving "A" in its façade, being nicknamed "Avengers Tower". After rescuing Loki's Scepter from Hydra, Tony researched on the Scepter and decided to use its power to finish a stalled artificial intelligence program called Ultron. However, Ultron ended up becoming evil upon inception, shutting down J.A.R.V.I.S. and taking over the Iron Legion bots to attack the Avengers. Stark would later use Stark Tower's facilities to reprogram an artificial lifeform that was being built by Ultron, Vision.

Although the Avengers later relocated to the New Avengers Facility, the tower itself remains in New York with the familiar logo. The tower was later sold to an unknown buyer.[10]
