My favourite character.

Iron Man is a fictional character, a brutal superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. An American boastful billionaire, industrialist and ingenious ambitious engineer, Tony Stark suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping in which his captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction.   Instead of it he creates a powered suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. He later uses the suit to protect the world as Iron Man. And then vain and self-centered genius turned into fair-minded outgoing hero. Through his corporation ― Stark Industries ― Tony has created many military weapons, some of which, along with other technological devices of his making, have been integrated into his suit, helping him fight crime. Throughout most of the character's publication history, Iron Man has been a member of the superhero team named “the Avengers” and has been featured in several embodiments of his own various comic book series. Iron Man has been adapted for several animated TV shows and films. The character is portrayed by Robert Downey, Jr. in the live action film “Iron Man”. Downey, who received much acclaim for his performance, reprised the role in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including two Iron Man sequels and “The Avengers”. Though many people call him selfish and arrogant man of fortune because of his cynicism, I like this character. For me he is outstanding and strong-willed warrior.
