That describes HANK PYM to a tee.
It doesn't describe TONY STARK at all.
Tony Stark tries his best to make the world a better place....and always succeeds.
Hank Pym tries his best to make the world a better place....and always fails.
IM: Tony's company is a weapon manufacturer that supposedly makes weapons for the greater good of America. Tony believes he's doing good. Turns out they're selling under the table to terrorist groups.

IM2: Tony thinks he is doing good by keeping the IM armor all to himself and claims there's no way anyone will be able to develop it in the next 10 years. Turns out his schematics end up in the hands of his enemies.

IM3: Tony thinks he is helping this girl by finishing her equation. Leads to the creation of AIM and all the power backing them up.

His story is all about him trying to do something good, ****ing up, and then fixing the **** up, If you call him fixing his **** ups succeeding then yes, he succeeds...but not before ****ing up in the first place. It would be the same situation with Ultron, except this would be his biggest **** up ever and the biggest clean job as well...which will likely have lasting repercussions.

Giving his character something heavy like the creation of Ultron might entice more people to want to see Ant-Man after watching AOU. Stark has already been through a lot, and Marvel has to expand.
Like I said, we'll see.

They also like doing clever things like giving you details and hints about something without saying anything or making them blatant. They did it all throughout IM3.
