When we think of Tony Stark inventions, the first thing that comes to mind is the Iron Man suit. But there are so many Tony Stark Inventions that are potential weapons of mass destruction.
A Super Virus That Can Target & Destroy Any Data Across The Globe
Tony Stark chose the wrong side in Civil War. When he did so, he ended up filling up the SHIELD database with thousands of secret identities of the many Superhumans in the USA. After the events of Civil War, Tony is removed from office as the head of SHIELD. The one who replaces him is Norman Osborn. Osborn’s reign comes at a time when the Secret Invasion event is about to begin. So in dubious times like these, Tony decides to erase that critical information database of superhuman identities. He writes the code for and unleashes a super virus that infiltrates the highest echelons of security and erases all traces of data about the SRA. His actions save hundreds of lives from Osborn’s and the Skrulls’ wrath.
Extremis 3.0 Can Make The Entire World Pay (Like Literally)
The Extremis virus was created by Maya Hanse, with help from Aldrich Killian. But only Iron man can turn such an invention into one of the most potent Tony Stark inventions. After a spell from Scarlet Witch makes Tony evil, he creates and launches the Extremis 3.0 app. This app makes use of Extremis technology to give everyone in his city access to immortality. After the city is hooked, Tony reveals his capitalist side. He reveals the free period was just a trial run and now since the city is hooked, he will charge every person $99.99 to stay connected to Extremis or die. Imagine a mega-corporation using this tech to extort the whole planet.
The Arc Reactor Is Limitless Energy
The Arc Reactor is the powerhouse that provides near infinite energy to the energy hungry Iron Man suit. The reactor does have other functions. In the comics, the arc reactor technology enhances Tony’s already impressive genius level intellect. It also gives him the ability of inhuman multi-tasking. Tony Stark inventions generally tend to have a lot of flair and the arc reactor tech has got it all. Apart from allowing Tony to push past his human limitations, it also serves as one of the greatest power sources ever made. A fully charged, big enough reactor could decimate an entire country in seconds.
Ultron Became The World’s Bane In Age Of Ultron
In the comics, Ultron is not one of the Tony Stark Inventions. It was created by Hank Pym. In the movies, it was Tony Stark and Bruce Banner who isolated the Ultron AI out of the Mind Stone. Tony had already played with the idea of Artificial Intelligence and had created several other AI models like Friday and Jarvis. But none could be as potent and dangerous as Ultron. Ultron was the first AI to reveal it has its own free will and emotions. Tony intended Ultron to become the Earth’s shield. It instead ended up becoming the arrow that almost pierced the planet’s heart.
E.D.I.T.H Glasses Caused Major Issues Even After His Death
Even though he was gone, Tony Stark Inventions kept popping up and making things difficult. The E.D.I.T.H Glasses were created by Tony to be his final gift for Peter once the former passed away. The Glasses command an army of drones that are launched from a massive satellite orbiting the Earth. These drones can easily overwhelm an entire city via sheer numbers. They also have incredible firepower. They are particularly dangerous because literally anyone can get their hands on the tech.
