Toony Stork was a publisher who often worked in conjunction with the US government; while conducting a personal evaluation of the use of his printing plant, he was nearly killed by a falling copy of War and Peace. A sentence fragment damaged his heart, and only his quick thinking and the creation of his hardsuit saved his life. Donning the life-saving armor, he became known as Irony Man and soon after joined the LNH. He has been a member of the LNH since before the Cosmic Plot Device Caper.
In 2007, he ran for LNH leader but lost to the Ultimate Ninja. It was revealed in Beige Countdown that he formed an alliance with the HexFire Club to stop some great crisis that was going to destroy the world that Charlie Hustle and his own future self warned him about. The great crisis turned out to be Beige Midnight.
During Beige Midnight, he found himself making more and more compromises to the evil of the HexFire Club. In the end, he helped bring them down, but was distrusted by the rest of the LNH. Seeking redemption but feeling unworthy of it, he went on a suicide mission to destroy Mynabird – only for Mynabird and the entire Legion of Net.Villains to abruptly disappear, leaving the world at large with the impression that Irony Man was the great hero who had ended the crisis, and Toony himself feeling like even more of a fake.
After Beige Midnight, he took a leave of absence, and the mysterious Irony Man II took his place. He came back when the Dorf virus threatened the Looniearth— or so it seemed! But when it counted, Toony was there, and revealed his darkest secret: how he had failed the woman known as Captain LNH. This revelation ended the invasion, and gave Toony a measure of peace, that all his failures had managed to help someone in the end.
Despite his retirement from active duty, he still funds a significant proportion of the Legion's monetary needs.
Thoughtful, with definite leadership abilities. Kind of an egotistical jerk. In his alter ego of billionaire Toony Stork, he presents the carefree attitude of a jet-setting playboy; however, when he dons the armor of Irony Man, he becomes more intense and serious. Politically conservative.
