Speaking of, if we define heroism as putting one's life on the line, then Hulk is not a hero at all. Thor was only a hero for five seconds in his own film. A broader definition is needed or we need to take the word 'hero' out of superhero.
He didn't create the "Iron Legion" to be proxies, though. He fully intended each suit of armor to be used to its intended purpose in any given situation --- i.e., if he needed to go into space for a mission, or go underwater, or be "invisible," etc. It was a desperation move to fire up the whole batch of them and have JARVIS r/c them into attacking the AIM base en masse.
