1) We know quite a lot about Kang´s actual life - like that he was born in the 30th century, and details about his childhood and youth.

2) We know similar details about Tony Stark. That he is Howard Stark´s son was never in question.

3) As has been shown in Avengers Forever, Kang never manipulated Stark -it was always Immortus. And not since the beginning of his career, but only from Galactic Storm on.

4) Sure, they look alike - a little bit. So do Captain American and Hawkeye. But haircolor and -style isn´t everything.

5) Psychologically, they are very different. Stark hates warfare, and made it clear during his brief tenure as Secretary of Defense that if he could in any way make it possible, "Nobody need die in war ever again". His entire motivation during Civil War was AVOIDING all-out war at all costs. That could not be more different from Kang´s philosophy - he loves battle above all other things.

6) There has never been an intimate link between Stark and Kang, like there was between Kang and Doom.

I do not think Tony Stark and Kang, the Conqueror, are in any way, shape or form related, never mind the suggestiin that they are the same guy.

Yeah, that's the key thing. Stark tries to control everything. While he does do violent things, it is always with the motive of preventing even greater violence. Even at his worst, his violence is surgical. Meanwhile Kang will deliberate limit himself to make things even more competative so he can enjoy the chaos and combat.

Stark invented anti-She-Hulk nanotech so he could beat her as quietly and safely as possible. Kang refused to go back to the future and come back instantly with an army built up over years in the future, because it would have been an I-WIN button and ended the bloody battles he enjoys.

In many ways they are the opposite. Stark will go overboard on friends in the name of control and peace. Kang will self-limit himself in the name of chaos.
