A few years later, Iron Man was instrumental in stopping Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash (Mickey Rourke), earning a medal for bravery and being declared a national treasure. A few years after that, and Iron Man joined the Avengers Initiative, protecting the planet from invaders from another world taking over the city of New York.
Clearly, Iron Man is a hero, but perhaps not to everyone. Sure, he stopped Whiplash, but wasn't he also somewhat responsible for creating him too? It's not easy being a superhero, and when you also live your life as Tony Stark, there's plenty of crimes committed along the way, which is why a rap sheet exists for Marvel's metal superhero.

74-13.24BR Aiding and Abetting Terrorist Activity:
In the Middle East, several terrorist organizations were discovered with weapons supplied by Stark Industries. While Iron Man destroyed the weapons cache in possession of the Ten Rings terrorist group, several more groups own weapons from Stark's company.
In Afghanistan, Tony Stark's initial Iron Man design dissembled upon a crash landing in the desert, still constituting a littering charge. Fortunately, a local organization collected the remains. Unfortunately for Stark, that group was the Ten Rings group and the remains were used to create Iron Monger.
9-06.0245 Destruction of Public and Private Property:
In Long Beach, California, just outside Stark Enterprises, Iron Man's freeway fight with Iron Monger, resulted in several destroyed cars as well as a bus. One single mother, who was driving her kids at the time of the fight, sued Stark Enterprises for damages after Iron Man left finger scratches on the hood of her car. The fact that Iron Man had caught the car after it was thrown by Stane was absent from the lawsuit.
In Queens, New York, just outside of Stark Expo, hundreds of cars were destroyed while being parked under an overpass. Iron Man claims that he was being chased by Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes, aka War Machine, who, in turn, was being controlled by Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash, though several some authorities, and hundreds of civilians, hold Iron Man responsible. Ironically, War Machine's car was also destroyed in the blast.
At the Stark Expo, Iron Man and War Machine's fight against Ivan Vanko destroyed the interior of Oracle's Japanese garden pavilion. Stark Enterprises narrowly avoided a lawsuit after the incident, but, ultimately, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison was pleased with the publicity and product placement.
13-09.1881 Public Disturbance:
On the night of Tony Stark's birthday, neighbors of Stark's Malibu home complained of excessive noise, including loud music, coupled with prolonged stretches of record scratching and culminating in a sonic boom which shook several homes in the area. The only damage was incurred inside Stark's home, but it was not the first time his neighbors have made a noise complaint.
Randy's Donuts of Inglewood, California, have complained of Iron Man loitering on their giant donut sign on several occasions. Satellite photography was able to capture a photo of Stark on the sign, though, it should noted, he had purchased donuts, making him a legitimate customer.
15-98.298F Public Endangerment:
During Justin Hammer's presentation at the Stark Expo, Iron Man's surprise appearance led to the Hammer drones to fire on Iron Man as he fled, destroying the auditorium's glass ceiling. The broken glass injured hundreds of attendees while hundreds more were injured by the drones' missiles and machine gun blasts.
See Chitauri invasion, New York City for more information — Page 26-52. Hundreds of new charges from the incident are arriving daily.
3A-45.678B Violation of the Natural Areas Preservation Act:
During a fight with Thor, the two Avengers decimated a federally-protected forest preserve, destroying several acres of forest as well as a side of a mountain. Satellite footage of the fight is below.
65-32.49J Violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act:
While on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, Stark knowingly hacked into top secret files using a small mobile device placed onto a S.H.I.E.L.D. computer. Outside of decrypting a hacked version of Galaga software, Stark also discovered information on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s plans to make weapons from the energy of the Tesseract. Those were top secret.
