new weapons technology for the U.S. military, billionaire
arms designer and manufacterer, Anthony "Tony" Stark suffers
life-threatening injuries in an enemy ambush. Captured by an
enemy warlord, Stark is forced to create a high-tech weapon
for his captor. Instead, Tony Stark designs a powerful suit
of advanced armor which he wears to effect his escape and,
in doing so, becomes the Iron Man. (Tales of Suspense
#39, March, 1963)
As with many
superheroes, Tony Stark went to great lengths to hide his
identity as Iron Man. As far as the public knew, Iron Man
was an employee of Stark Enterprises whose job it was to act
as Stark's bodyguard in an armored suite designed by Tony
Stark. Over the years, Stark kept up this fiction; even
claiming that he occassionally replaced one Iron Man
employee with others. Eventually, Stark revealed his
identity to the world.
