Anthony Edward Stark or, Tony for short, received a severe chest wound while being kidnapped.
While his captures' plans were to force him to create a weapon of mass destruction, Tony built a mechanical suit of armor to help himself escape.
Later, Stark develops his suit, adding weapons and other technological devices he designed through his company, Stark Industries. He uses the suit and successive versions to protect the world as Iron Man.
Although at first concealing his true identity, Stark eventually declared that he was, in fact, Iron Man in a public announcement. ("I am Iron Man." sound drop)
