PREPARED BY PRESIDENT & CEO ANTHONY "TONY" STARKEdit
Stark Industries Tech-Assess: Sentinel (M-Series)
“People often ask me why I pilot the Iron Man suit myself, as opposed to just operate him remotely as a robot, or hire somebody to do it for me.
“I usually reply it’s easier to get girls this way.
“But that’s just a line. The real reason is Bolivar Trask.
“A brilliant roboticist, Trask wasn’t smart enough to accept the fact his own son was born a mutant. So he built anthropomorphic drones with death rays and genetic scanners to detect homo superior, then sent them out to hunt down mutants.
“The Sentinels promptly calculated the best way to get rid of mutants was to get rid of all humans -- since where else do mutants come from? They blasted poor Bolivar to kingdom come and have been trying to wipe out homo superior and homo sapiens ever since.
“That’s why I fly the Iron Man. Not an employee, or make him a robot. A tool can always be taken from its user and wielded for the wrong ends.
“So I make sure this tool is always firmly within hand.”
