Howard Stark was a brilliant scientist and ruthless businessman, who made Stark Industries a world leader in technology. An alcoholic, Howard treated his son, Tony Stark (Iron Man), harshly. Howard was disappointed by Tony's lack of direction, but was able to cultivate his intelligence. Howard and his wife Maria died in a car crash, apparently the result of faulty brakes arranged by business competitors from Republic Oil & Gas (later Roxxon Energy Corporation). Their death inspired Tony to take both business and engineering seriously. Howard was also contracted by the U.S. (During WWII) to head up the Super Soldier program, and also participated in the Manhattan Project (development of the atomic bomb).
