That's a good point. It's part of the take on Stark in the movies I hadn't considered. How does it compare to his character as a whole from the comics? I've always understood him to be a bit more right wing than other superheroes.
Like a lot of early Marvel heroes he fought a fair amount of Communist villains, perhaps more than most. But as the sixties wore on that was played down. Stark also got out of the munitions business in comics decades before doing so in films. In the eighties his main character traits became alcoholism and losing his business.
