one. after the extremis virus was stabilised and turned into a viable serum for its original regenerative purposes, tony was injected with a very weak strain of it in the operation you see at the end of IRON MAN 3. he then continued to experiment on extremis before perfecting it and successfully transfusing it into his body. the effects and process are identical to the extremis arc of IRON MAN, VOL. 4 in the 616 comic verse.
two. the effects of extremis are as follows: greatly accelerated healing; immensely-boosted immune system; generation of improved organs i.e. upgraded cardiovascular and respiratory systems. tony altered extremis' super-powers and exchanged them for the ability to interface directly with machines and his own armor. he is able to call upon the suit at will which is stored, when not in use, within his bone marrow.
three. tony is currently not in a relationship. he and pepper parted on good terms a few months into the new year following the events of extremis and he has been single for some time now. she remains his CEO and one of his closest friends and confidantes.
four. with SHIELD dismantled post - CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, stark industries is the sole provider of resources for ex-SHIELD members seeking to tie up loose ends. when maria hill was offered a senior position in the human resources department, she, tony and pepper brokered a deal for stark industries to finance and arm several missions to carry out surveillance, reconaissance of suspected HYDRA agents in the american government and other intelligence agencies.
five. my main verse tends to default to the one set in this aftermath. ( see: tinker tailor soldier spy. ) tony is currently in DC in that verse, assisting with the city's clean-up and recovery via funding. he has been avoiding the media for the most part and has yet to offer up any official comment on the events of what's been viewed as an act of terrorism involving his two teammates.
