4 Real-Life Tony Starks

AAA

Eccentric billionaire Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, has captured comic book fans' attention since 1963. The character of Stark is an industrialist who took over Stark Enterprises, a firm that specializes in high-tech military defense gear, after the tragic death of his parents. Stark has a reputation as a playboy, but he uses his incredible intelligence (he already had two master's degrees by the age of 19) to fight evil as Iron Man. Stark is a work of fiction, but here are some real men that embody the traits of the Golden Avenger.
