  • § Tony Stark is the C.E.O of Stark Industries. Stark industries sell weapons and vehicles to the military, vehicles to the public and laptops, cell phones and tablets. Tony Stark is the richest person in the world. There is a break in at Stark Industries and the blueprints for various weapons are stolen. Tony had been working on a weaponized suit for the army. He finishes the prototype and to test it out he finds out who stole the plans. Tony traces back to an organization called the 10 rings. He goes to their base, takes the blueprints back and then destroys the base. A year later there is a bombing at the New York Stark Industries headquarters. Later in the week a video is released. It features a Chinese man. He claims to be the Mandarin. He says that Stark had something that he wants and that he’s going to get it. As Stark is watching this is mind is racing. What am I going to do? Should I go? Where should I go? What does he want? Tony realizes that the Mandarin wants something his father gave to him before he died. He goes down to his basement and opens a metal suitcase. Inside is a ring. It’s white. His father told him it’s from ancient china and that a lot of people want it, but that he shouldn’t give it to anyone, and no matter what do not wear it. The doorbell rings. Tony answers the door and it’s his friend Rhodey. Rhodey tell Tony that he has to get away from his home, because the 10 rings were coming. Tony tells Rhodey to take the suitcase with the ring in it and take it someplace secure and far away. Rhodey does what Tony says and Tony gets to work immediately. Tony goes to his basement and starts modifying the prototype suit he used to take down the 10 rings the first time. He finishes the suit. He takes it out for a few test runs the night he finishes. He returns to his house and removes the suit. He sits down to watch TV when there is a breaking news alert. It says that 4 jets were headed for L.A. They all have the same logo on them as the logo that appeared at the end and beginning of the video with the Mandarin. Tony suits up and goes to meet the jets. He realizes that those jets were all his own inventions modified. He takes down the jets and return to his home. Tony returns to his house. There is footage of the fight going viral on the internet. Tony sits down for an interview and the reporter asks him about his reaction to “Iron Man” stopping the jets that were most likely after him. Tony says that the “Iron Man” is his new head of security and his first tasks were to stop those planes. Tony also says that those suits were his design and that anything he does falls back on Tony. The Mandarin releases another video. This time it shows the Mandarin with a ring on his left hand little finger. It’s the same ring that Tony had. Mandarin then points his finger with the ring on it at a young African American man. It’s Rhodey. Mandarin says that Iron Man must turn himself in to the 10 rings or Rhodey will die. Tony immediately suits up and goes to where the 10 rings were the first time he stopped them. There is nothing there. He hears a high pitched ear piercing sound getting louder and louder. There is a missile aimed right at him. Iron Man shoots into the sky not looking back. He realizes that the missile should’ve landed already and he looks behind him and sees that the missile is following him. No matter where he goes or what he does the missile is following him. Tony shoots a laser at it and there is a huge explosion. It knocks Iron Man to the ground and he passes out. Tony wakes up in the clothes he was wearing under the Iron Man suit. He is strapped down in a chair in a dark room with one singe light hanging above him. Tony hears a beep and then he hears a familiar voice. The voice explains who the person is in front of him. The person steps into the light and is revealed to be Mandarin. He then looks to where the beep came from and says that Tony Stark was Iron Man all along. He then shows the audience his ring and then says he’ll demonstrate what it could do. Two soldiers bring in Rhodey. Mandarin points his ring at Rhodey and a white blast come out of it. Rhodey is frozen in a chunk of ice. Mandarin says “That is all” and the beep is heard again. Mandarin walks out of the room followed by the camera man. Tony gets angry. He starts struggling to get lose, but can’t. He looks around and sees a broken piece of the concrete floor on the ground. It’s sharp. He tips his chair over, grabs it and uses it to cut free the rope holding him down. He then uses the rock to crack the ice Rhodey was in and then chip it away. Rhodey is groggy and weak, but still alive. Rhodey and Tony sneak out of the room and try to find the suit. They have no idea where to look, but they find a hanger. There in the hanger are various planes like the ones that attempted to attack Tony. There are also tanks and other weapons all of Tony’s design. They sneak past soldiers and they make their way into one of the jets. Rhodey being an air force veteran starts the plane up and flies away as soldiers are shooting at the plane. They land back in America and there is a celebration that they are both back. Tony then builds a new suit for himself and one for Rhodey. Toney installed a GPS tracker in his computer for the suits so he knows where they are. Using that he finds the 10 rings exact location. Tony uses his A.I Jarvis to find out more about the ring Mandarin wanted. Tony finds out that there are 10 rings all with different powers, from an old Chinese myth which is apparently real. The myth is cryptic as to where the rings are, but Tony figures some of them out. Now it’s a race to the rings between Iron Man and Mandarin. Tony gathers 5 rings; Mandarin gathers 4 for more (for a total of 5). Mandarin sends 9 jets and a helicopter to Tony Starks home. Rhodey and Tony try to fight them off, but it is too much. Soldiers file out of the helicopter into Tony’s home. They take the rings and leave. Tony attempts to fly after them, but his suit is running out of energy and he can’t. Tony and Rhodey go to the 10 rings base which is empty. Tony feels like a failure. Tony returns to his home and puts up the mantle of Iron Man since Mandarin is not causing trouble. All he wanted was the rings. Tony donates the War Machine sit to the U.S army.

  • § Dorammu
  • § Wong

Arc

  • § Doctor Stephen Strange is a brilliant but egotistical neurosurgeon who only cares about wealth from his career. However, a car accident damages his hands, shattering the bones. The damage and subsequent healing effectively ends his ability to conduct surgery as he had before, since his hands now tremble uncontrollably. Too proud to take on a teaching job, Strange desperately begins the search for a cure to restore his hands, consulting various doctors, homeopathic treatments and travelling around the world to remote regions for exotic cures, all to no avail. Having completely exhausted all of his funds and reduced to homelessness, Strange is forced to perform back alley medical procedures for cash. Depressed and still searching for a cure, Strange locates a hermit called the Ancient One in the Himalayas. The Ancient One refuses to help Strange because of his selfishness, but senses his good side which he attempts to bring to the surface. The Ancient One trains Strange in the mystic arts along with his other student Amadeus Mordo. Stephen’s cockiness at first gets in the way of his training, but he eventually gets rid of that and replaces it with courage. The Ancient one sends him out on missions with fellow sorcerers to stop magical beings from damaging the normal world. After some amazing feats spontaneously performed by Stephen, The Ancient One believes Stephen to be the next sorcerer supreme. The sorcerer supreme is a title given to the most powerful sorcerers. The sorcerer supreme has a mental link with all of the past sorcerers and can summon their power to help him/her. There are some whose mission it is to find the sorcerer supreme. The ancient one is one of those people. The ancient one gives Stephen a series of test to see if he’s the sorcerer supreme. Stephen passes everyone. The ancient one reveals to all of his disciples that Stephen is the new sorcerer supreme. Stephen now leads missions instead of Mordo. Mordo builds up a hate for Stephen. Mordo challenges Strange. Stephen humiliates Mordo. The next day Mordo is gone. Stephen continues to lead missions but begins to see visions. He sees visions of destruction and monsters and things so horrific he can’t even describe them. He tells the ancient one and the ancient one brings him to the sanctum sanctorum. It is like the bridge connecting all different dimensions. He takes him to the gate that separates the dark dimension from the others. He says that he’d been feeling a strong force coming from the dark dimension. He knows for sure that Dormammu the ruler of the dark dimension cannot break through. Strange and the Ancient One go back to Tibet. The next week there is an attack in New York by a creature called the Wing ark. Strange, Wong, The Ancient One and the rest of the top sorcerers go to NYC to fight them. There are 5 sorcerers who die. At the end of the battle a portal opens up from the ground. Amadeus Mordo rises out of it. He now calls himself Baron Mordo as a count of his father’s death. Mordo challenges Strange again. They have a huge battle, but Mordo wins. Mordo then battles Wong and wins then he kills the Ancient One. Strange regains a little of his strength and asks Mordo how he had gotten so strong. Mordo says he has the help of the most powerful being to exist. Mordo forms a huge ball of fire and sends it straight at the sanctum sanctorum. A huge portal forms from where the sanctum sanctorum was and outcomes an army of creatures that have a thick, roughly humanoid shape standing taller than most men and a hide that appears to be made of rock. They have no faces to speak of except a single glowing eye. They start shooting yellow beams out of that I. Wong identifies them as the Mindless Ones. The remaining sorcerers fight them off. Then comes out a hellish creature. He is a giant. His face resembles a black skull and it is surrounded by Fire. This is Dormammu. Dormammu begins to destroy NYC. The sorcerers try to fight him off but fail. Doctor Strange then goes to the ancient ones dead body and takes the eye of agamotto which the ancient one had not yet gotten the chance to give to Strange. Strange taunts Dormammu. Dormammu sends a huge blast of energy at Strange. Strange uses the eye to absorb the energy. Dormammu continues until he almost runs out of energy. Strange then takes all of that energy and sends it back to Dormammu destroying him. The sorcerers go back to Tibet and they celebrate. During the celebration Wong pulls Strange aside and tells him that they have to start looking for new recruits. He then says he was looking at a particular girl named Clea.
