Too much of an easy out, let him be shown to be the flawed human who made seriously poor choice errors based on what he thought was a good idea and deal with that.

It'll probably never happen in a story, but in a lot of ways, Stark helped the Skrulls out by pushing the SHRA and then also in enforcing it. In fact, it's probably why they didn't replace him with a Skrull. He did a good deal of their job for them, and in some ways softened the U.S. for an invasion in the first place.

I think it'd be just as powerful and poignant a story to have Tony come to grips with his actions and realize he crossed major lines to promote what he labelled as decisions for the better good. In leadership terms, right now he's no better than Dr Doom. Some of his backers might also benefit from such an epiphany.

and it might be time for him to stop bragging about what a "futurist" he is.
