Iron Man 2020

Iron Man is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a superhero appearing as the counterpart of the superhero Iron Man in the future year of 2020 set in the multiverse world of Earth-8410. Iron Man 2020 first appeared in the second issue of the Machine Man limited series and was created by Tom DeFalco and Herb Trimpe. Arno is Tony Stark's future first cousin once removed, the unscrupulous Morgan Stark's son. Arno inherited the company Stark Industries. Rather than use the armor for heroic deeds, he prefers to act as a hired mercenary or commit acts of corporate espionage to cripple his competitors for industrialist gain. In his original appearance, the Iron Man of 2020 was employed by Sunset Bain to destroy Machine Man, accidentally discovered and subsequently reactivated by the Midnight Wreckers, rebellious youths who scavenged discarded technology. Despite ostensibly superior power, Iron Man was defeated by the furious Machine Man who went on to claim "I'm a better man than you."In another story, Arno's factory is infiltrated by Robert Saunders, a scarred man who starts a countdown on a powerful bomb of Stark's design, threatening Stark's wife and son and the surrounding city.

The only way to deactivate the device is with a retinal scan of Saunders, but Saunders is killed and his body destroyed while trying to escape. To get the scan data, Stark travels back in time to the "present" to find Saunders as a child, he is soon attacked by one of Tony's enemies Blizzard. Arno, knowing his time in the 20th century is limited, kills Blizzard and continues his search for the young Saunders; this draws the attention of Spider-Man who mistakes Arno for Tony and further mistakes Arno's attempts to get a retinal scan from Saunders as an attack on the boy. While protecting Saunders, Spider-Man evades various attempts by Arno to get hold of the boy, while Arno becomes desperate as his time in the 20th century nears its end. One of Arno's attacks injures Saunders. Surprised by the assault and overwhelmed by Spider-Man's far greater speed, Arno's armor is damaged; when he is pulled back to his own time, he finds himself standing in the center of a huge crater, having returned too late to prevent the bomb's detonation and the destruction of his family and city.

A appearance has Iron Man 2020 fight the time-traveling cyborg Death's Head. Iron Man 2020 had his own one-shot in June 1994, in which he faces off against an industrial rival who seeks to use him to destroy all his competitors all at once, sacrificing his own daughter in the process. At the end of the story and the girl Melodi get together, suggesting an evolution towards a more heroic role again. Meanwhile, the background character Howard is revealed to be the aged Tony himself who intends to guide his young cousin. Arno has been seen imprisoned in the time cells of the Time Variance Authority, the holding facilities for the most "dangerous time-travel offenders". In 2023, Arno makes helicarrier technology available for public use, to start with in the form of a helicruiser called the "Spirit of free enterprise". At the same time, he has supplied S. H. I. E. L. D. With a far more advanced replacement Hypercarrier, his launching the airborne cruise ship has raised the ire of the aged sky pirate, Commodore Q.

Arno has married Melodi at this point and "Howard" remains his retainer. He employs a squad of fetal Extremis enhanciles who act as his personal armored combat squad. A version of Arno's armor left in the present is stolen by the Sinister Six as part of Doctor Octopus's plans against the Avengers, using technology from the armor to devise a means of defeating the Iron Man of the present. Arno is rescued from a collapsing timeline by Kang the Conqueror who recruits him as part of a team of multiversal characters tasked with combating the Apocalypse Twins. Iron Man 2020 wears a suit of sophisticated armor, similar in appearance to the classic Iron Man armor, with the exception of the faceplate and shoulders. Beam weapons are fitted in the gauntlets of the suit, as well as the chest beam and shoulder epaulets; the user no longer requires a cybernetic link in the helmet to control the armor. Iron Man 2020's systems are built for warfare, not super heroics like the original Iron Man. Iron Man 2020's repulsors always fire at maximum power for the most lethal effects.

Curiously, Iron Man 2020 has the original Iron Man's 1970s-era rollerskates built into the boots of the suit. A version of Iron Man 2020 appeared as one of the multidimensional "potential" Avengers in Avengers Forever. In the pages of Marvel Zombies 5, Arno Stark is a businessman in Earth-483, he attempts to hire the heroic Hurricane to perform daring stunts for his shows. Instead, Arno is transformed by a zombie, he proceeds to rampage through town, causing the deaths of most of the citizens including the Hurricane.
