There were a few moments in Iron Man where Obidiah mentions something like

"bringing the balance of power back in our hands"

and he ordered an assassination attempt on Tony. Was Stane part of HYDRA?

    are you sure that this is not 2 questions? (not sure about zolas algorithm there being related enough to be put into one and the same question as the other part) – Thomas Jan 15 '17 at 7:23

    Second part of question was an unrelated (and probably unanswerable) question. I've edited it out. – Valorum Jan 15 '17 at 10:43
  • As far as I can tell he wasn't. Also, why would Hydra want to kill Tony, when at this point he wasn't working for SHIELD... – Valorum Jan 15 '17 at 10:44
  • This was a theory floating around in 2014, but there's no evidence favoring it within the movies. – user33616 Jan 15 '17 at 18:43
  • Stephen Strange was nothing but a talented surgeon, but HYDRA wanted him killed because he might cause trouble later. You don't think HYDRA might want a person like Tony eliminated? – phantom42 Jan 16 '17 at 23:27

There aren't any known links between Obadiah Stone and HYDRA, but Stone is known to have business relations with the Ten Rings, which is the villainous group in Iron Man.
