Iron Man is a superhero in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was first seen in Tales of Suspense #39 (1963). The character was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck, and Jack Kirby. The rich industrialist and engineer Tony Stark developed a powered suit of armor to escape a kidnapping plot and went on to use progressively refined armor to protect his corporate empire Stark Industries and fight crime as Iron Man. Iron Man has been portrayed in several films by Robert Downey, Jr., including Iron Man (2008) and The Avengers (2012).
