Out of all the characters in the Marvel universe, of all the superheroes,
the one superhero whose character has been most elaborated is Tony Stark.
From his flaws to his advantage, everything has been presented without any sugar-coating.
Where he is right, where he is stuck with his ego, when he is fully self-obsessed, when he fears death, nothing has been concealed.
And why is so?
Because in the end, he is just a human being, like all of us.
He isn’t just about all good. He is not some god from another planet neither he is the product of a lab experiment. And neither he has any extra unhuman trained physical abilities.
All he has is his mind and his will to survive, like us.
So, in this article, we will talk about the 5 most fundamental things about Tony Stark’s character.
And try to understand his personality with a completely new perspective and learn from it.
And I promise you after this article you will not see Tony Stark the same way again.
#1 – he is unconventional.
The one thing that makes Tony Stark different from other superheroes is his attitude.
which is very different compared to other superheroes.
While superheroes usually, want their identities to remain hidden, Tony Stark announces his superhero identity in front of the whole press.
While superheroes work living underground, Tony Stark lives in the city, among people, in his own huge tower.
Many people may see it as the corporate image of Tony Stark, as a business leader, which is right to a certain extent.
But usually, you will see, all the corporate leaders, business leaders, they present themselves humbly and with humility.
But Tony Stark, we all know.
Tony Stark has a social nonconformity in him, which makes him so appealing and attractive.
What people expect from him, what he should do according to society. these things don’t matter for him much.
In the case of Tony Stark, it is his way or no way.
And it’s not that this attitude always works in his favor. Sometimes it doesn’t.
But my point is that we also need to be unconventional to a certain extent. Especially with our work.
If you want to get your work noticed in this rat-race, Then you will have to do it differently.
Be unconventional. Like Tony Stark.
#2 – he speaks his mind.
This is an English phrase..speak one’s mind.
It means voicing out your opinion without any hesitation.
Tony Stark doesn’t mince any words while speaking to someone.
Whatever opinion he has of you, he will say right on your face.
He doesn’t care if you are offended.
If there is something good in you, he will appreciate it.
If there is something bad, he will say right on the spot.
And we should also practice this habit in our relationships, friendships. It makes things less confusing.
And our honest opinions are especially needed, when someone asks for our remark on their work, asks to comment on it.
Most of the times, even if the other person’s work is not good enough, we give them a false assurance.
Bro, you have done very good work. Bro, you have nailed it.
So that he doesn’t get offended. He does not feel bad.
And this is a very bad thing.
False assurance is a very big reason why we don’t make rapid improvements in our work.
The earlier you find mistakes in your work the faster you will improve.
Like Tony Stark, we should also always put our honest opinions about others among our friends.
And for ourselves also we should seek honest opinions from others
and we should also have the courage to listen to them.
Because there is no real progress without true and honest criticism.
So always speak your mind, like Tony Stark.
#3 – He has a sense of urgency.
All superheroes in the Marvel universe are mortal beings.
Means they can also die. They are not immortal.
Even Thor, who is a god, he can also die.
But in the whole Marvel series, if someone’s mortality and fear of death has been shown up-close,
then it is Tony Stark.
Tony Stark became Iron Man only to save himself from death.
Be it the arc reactor in his chest which prevented iron shrapnel from reaching his heart.
or be it the first iron man suite using which he could get out of the terrorist camp. or be it finding the replacement of palladium whose poison was slowly killing him.
Iron man, along with fighting the evil in the world, also fights his own death.
And the mortality we are talking about increases even more in his life after the first Avengers movie.
After New York alien attack, Tony realizes that with new problems coming up, one day he will not be enough. Maybe he will fail.
And this fear creates a sense of urgency in his life.
Because of which he goes on obsessively upgrading him. He sets thousands of types of powerful weapons in his armor.
He makes many extra iron man suites. Before the day comes, he wants to be fully prepared.
And just like Tony Stark, if we too want to stay relevant in this high-tech world,
then we also need to constantly upgrade our knowledge and skill set.
#4 – Playfulness.
There is no other charismatic character like Tony Stark in the whole Marvel universe.
The first reason for this is Robery Downey Jr. himself.
The way he has played the character, he is irreplaceable. We cannot even imagine someone else as an Ironman.
And the second reason is Tony Stark’s nature.
He is full of fun and a man of high spirits.
In Tony Stark’s every style, the way he talks, the way he fights, the way he argues,
even the way he show-offs, in his every act there is a liveliness, there is a jolly mood.
Though, it’s a different thing that sometimes this playfulness changes into arrogance, some times into self- obsession, sometimes into madness.
But whatever, at least he is not boring.
Even in the battle field, Tony Stark has a very different style, which doubles the thrill of watching action scenes.
And if we also want to be so innovative like Tony Stark in our life, if we want to have such a charming personality,
then we also need to bring some playfulness in our life.
We need to be a little jolly in nature.
#5 – He is a mechanic.
Whenever we see an Iron man movie, we find that basically only the two identities of Tony Stark are highlighted.
The one where he is in his Tuxedo as one of the richest persons and second where he is fighting in the Iron man suite.
But I think there is also a third identity of Iron man which does not get much screen time nor much credit.
And that is where he is working alone in his garage as a mechanic.
Due to not being so necessary in the story, all his garage scenes are usually shown in time-lapse.
By fast-forwarding it with background music.
But if there is any scene in the movie which shows the real strength of Tony Stark then it is his garage scene.
First thing, Tony Stark is not like those people who hold positions and get work done by other people.
He himself enjoys working. From ground level to higher level.
He himself is an engineer, designer, and everything.
And the type of technologies he works on, he has to stay day and night in his garage.
In Avengers infinity war, if you see the upgradation in his suite, then you will realize how much effort would have gone into making it.
How many hours he would have worked alone sitting in his garage.
And you yourself have to understand these things if you want to understand Tony Stark. You will have to read between the scenes.
There is a quote in english.
Champions are not made in the ring. They are merely reognized there.
All these real-life champions, be it Mohammad Ali or Messi or Virat Kohli, we all know them as champions only because of their achievements.
But they have been working on their skills from a very young age. They have given hours and hours in their craft. To get perfect at it.
And this is the actual reason for them being a champion.
And like Tony Stark’s real labor and hard work is not seen in the movie,
in the same way, the world doesn’t know about the labor and hard work of these people.
the reality is that if you want to hone your skill and achieve mastery over it, then you have to give it time. a lot of time.
You cannot achieve mastery in anything in a week.
Tony Stark is Ironman not just because he has Iron man suite but because he is also willing to work like an Iron man.
Like a mechanic. For hours and hours. Alone in his garage.
These five things is important to follow us by in our own life. I hope you like this…. Give us your valuable comments below.. It really motivate us to generate more content for you like this…
