Yeah, a little movie called 'The Party's Over', starring you and your junkie girlfriend, and here's the ticket.
~ Happy Hogan to Eric Savin.
You're not Iron Man. You're never gonna be Iron Man. Nobody could live up to Tony. Not even Tony. Tony was my best friend, and he was a mess. He second-guessed everything he did. He was all over the place. The one thing that he did that he didn't second-guess was picking you. I don't think Tony would've done what he did, if he didn't know that you were gonna be here after he was gone.
~ Happy Hogan to Peter Parker.

Since Tony didn't go the ceremony, James Rhodes interrupted the two from gambling, and handed him the award. Afterward, Hogan drove Tony and reporter Christine Everhart, whom he had charmed, back to his mansion. The next morning, Happy followed Tony to the airport so that he could give a demonstration of the Jericho missile in Afghanistan. Eventually, Stark was captured by the Ten Rings, but escaped by creating a suit of armor with Ho Yinsen.

During his investigation, he was confronted by Savin at the Chinese theatre, and was put in critical condition from Jack Taggert's explosion with extremis. While Happy recovered from his injuries, Tony continued his investigation and stopped Killian and A.I.M.

Following the Battle of Earth, Happy attended Tony's funeral alongside Tony's family and friends after he defeated Thanos and his army. Afterward, Happy set with Tony's daughter, Morgan, and asked her if she was hungry.
