Propelled by desire to improve air travel safety, John combines his inherited wealth and robotics expertise to create Orion Corp, a company that aims to revolutionize airline safety through AI and robotics.

2. The Genesis of Iron Man

A critical incident happens. While inspecting one of his AI facilities, an accident leaves shards of superconductive metal lodged near his heart. Near death and desperate, John designs a magnetic chest piece. It simultaneously keeps the shards from piercing his heart and powers his injured body.

The birth of the Man of Iron is not just marked with physical transformation, but an ideological one as well. John realizes the potential of his invention for the greater good and decides to use his technology to combat crime.

3. Rogues and Relationships

Every hero needs a nemesis, and ours comes in the form of a disgruntled ex-employee of Orion Corp, David. He was fired by John due to unethical practices. David seeks revenge for his public humiliation. He develops similar, but flawed, technology and starts criminal activities, becoming the Iron Phantom.

Next to John's side is Lisa, a diplomatic envoy specializing in AI and robotics. She becomes an invaluable ally and love interest for John but is torn by her duty to maintain AI protocol and her admiration for John's difficult but necessary off-the-book actions.

4. The Man Behind the Mask

Despite the playboy industrialist persona the world sees, this version of John is a much more deeply flawed character. He battles with anxiety after his parents' death and guilt over using his technologies violently.
