|“||I am Iron Man.||”|
–The Iron Man
Travelling to the future, the man who would become the Iron Man sees that the apocalypse has occurred. Attempting to return to the present, he passes through the Great Magnetic Field, becoming transmuted into a living steel corpse.
However, he does successfully return, only to find himself paralysed and trapped inside his own body, unable to communicate with the outside world.
Seeing what became of the scientist, the population mocks him, unaware or uncaring of his plight. The Iron Man decides that saving humanity is no longer his goal, and instead decides to end it.
Originally a humanitarian, with hopes of saving his misguided species, the long-term effects of his transformation and isolation drove the Iron Man mad, turning him into a genocidal maniac.
