Iron Man and Spider-Man are the two better known Marvel characters especially when it comes to the movies. Well, Spider-Man a little more than Iron Man but you get the gist. That these two characters have always been by each other’s side -whether it be the Avengers or otherwise- is also a commonly known fact. But fans as we are, it is our duty to chalk up scenarios and confrontations that normally might not be possible. Who would call us fans if we didn’t do that? So as loyal followers of the Marvel franchise we thought what would happen if these two superheroes were pitted against each. We are bringing the possibilities from both sides and presenting it to you. Now you be the judge. Iron Man Vs. Spider-Man: Who Will Win?
‘I am Iron Man.’ When these words echoed through the cinema halls nine years ago, little had the fans-in-the-making known that the journey would come so far. The 17-movie strong Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown so much that it has become difficult to keep count of the movies that are part of the franchise. One thing is known perfectly to the fans, however. This journey started with the iconic first part of the Iron Man series which set up one of the most recognized and loved Marvel Movie character of all time. Robert Downey Jr. better known as Tony Stark changed completely the way a superhero movie is made and a character like Iron Man is played. I will be remiss if I don’t point out the fact that Iron Man till 2008 was one of the lesser known Marvel characters when it came to the public consciousness. Thanks to RDJ that’s not the case anymore.
Talking about the origin of the character in the movies, it’s pretty much similar to what the comics follow. Tony Stark, a man with abnormal -almost superhuman- intellectual capabilities, had been passed down an unbearable mantle. Due to that, he gave a fraction of his time to the family business when his father Howard Stark died, giving the reins of the company to Obadiah Stane. The better part of his time went into partying or devising new and exciting ways to blow things up. When he became the CEO of Stark Industries, Tony continued doing what he did best: he tinkered. He built bigger and better weapons than his father could have ever imagined. See, like his father Tony has always been an engineer, a problem solver. Of course, whatever subject he puts his mind to, he surpasses any human boundaries there are. In short, he’s a genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist.
