      Tony is super-rich. He just is.

    If Stark is a billionaire, then his enemies need to be trillionaires. That's not even that big a change: The Mandarin probably spent upwards of a trillion dollars on his invasion of Russia, and it was implied that he did it on a whim. But it needs to be emphasized.

Because whoever has the most money is the most evil? Only the writers think this. The readers couldn't care less. If the readers haven't found a reason to like Tony it's because the writers haven't written Tony with the proper level of heroism.

What we need is for the writers to stop bringing their political agenda to the comic.

WRITER: I lean socialist so I hate all capitalists and industrialists and Tony Stark is both so I will portray him as the biggest schmuck ever. Watch me do it.

READERS: Wow. Look at what Tony Stark just did. He's a big schmuck.

AMAZINGLY NON-MORONIC MARVEL EDITOR: Yo, Writer, you're fired. Get the heck out of this building and don't come back. What the heck were you thinking? Sheesh!

Yeah...I see where Mandy is going and that might get a few of your anti-capitalist writers to not write him as so much a douche bag, but the problem is letting writers who have their own agendas be they social or personal issues and who don't LIKE the character be in charge.

The Knauffs might be the last writers that I can think about that seemed to actually like him as a concept at least a little bit.
