Previous Post

He was nearly killed and replaced by the renegade LMD way back in Vol 1 #17 which finally led to the shrapnel being removed from him.

He was replaced by Rhodey when he succumbed to alcoholism, however I don't count that as corruption or kill.

He briefly dies thanks to the techno virus that corrupted his nervous system, is put on ice for a few weeks and Rhodey inherits the company and War Machine armor. Tony is defrosted and Rhodey quits for awhile

He WAS killed/replaced thanks to the Crossing/Teen Tony/Iron Boy fiasco.
He was brought back through sheer Deus Ex Machina in the form of Franklin Richards with Heroes Reborn/Return.

His morality became quite questionable in Civil War

Marvel Axis inverts Tony's morality and he becomes corrupt and becomes the Superior Iron Man, he was stopped when he was killed/reborn thanks to Secret War/Convergence/Crisis

He is mortally wounded in Civil War 2 and gets regenerated in apparently a new body but concludes he isn't the true Tony and that Tony is dead. Now he is Mark One, possibly dead thanks to current events in the 2020 storyline that is occurring. However there was a character called Ghost in the Machine that appeared onscreen in grey silhouette that alerted Mark One, yet we don't know who this is.

I suspect that it is the real Tony and that what was put down in Civil War 2 was an LMD and that what was regenerated was an LMD. The real Tony has been laying low as he doesn't trust Arno or the whole adoption thing.

Tony's power as Iron Man is so versatile and his character would be so rational and effective if they played him straight that he would be almost unusable unless they messed with it.

I mean, as Iron Man he's practically a Superman-type flying brick, and as Tony Stark he's a super-intelligent, wealthy industrialist playboy.

That's great, but it wouldn't make for very dramatic story.
