So my boyfriend and his best friend were discussing about it, both talking about the cinematic versions: Iron Man with the suit he used on The Avengers and movie version of Optimus Prime.

My Boyfriend said Optimus would end being a pile of metal, his friend said Iron Man would end toasted. I said Batman would win (as an obvious joke, Bat-fangirls ftw) We laughed a lot but didn't finished the discussion.

So Who would win? and could you explain why or how?

Is this a random encounter at ground level? And what equipment does Optimus have? And is Optimus pissed at Tony? Because bayformers Optimus is freaking terrifying when enraged.

Movie versions taken:

Prime would have problem with hitting Iron Man. He fast but small compared to him.

Iron Man wouldn't have the same problem but I don't beleive all of his weapons would work on prime.

If Prime got a solid hit in with his axe Iron Man would be cut in half. I woudl say Prime would get pretty jacked but Prime would take this.

Maybe all of them wouldn't but that laser he used seemed to be pretty powerful, I could see that scoring a critical hit on OP.

I'm feeling like Starks one shot Laser thing in Iron Man 2 could probably take out at least a limb from Optimus. Stark is so small that he can take out his eyes as well fairly easily. I'm gonna give it to Stark through incapacitation 6/10 times.

This is an interesting battle.

They are both tech based and could probably scan each other.

Optimus isn't as slow as people are thinking and Tony isn't that maneuverable within the close quarters it would take to actually damage Optimus.

There's a chance, through Tony's scan, he could find a way to shut him down or find critical spots to direct his attacks.

There's also a chance Optimus could grab and just break him in half lol

Good battle!

Ironman wins. All he have to do is aim for the center of Optimus Prime cest and it over.

Optimus Prime had his arm torn off pretty ease if you ask.

And they cannot take to much damage.

Does Optimus Prime get his jets?

As much as I hate to admit it the Armored Alcoholic has the advantage over Robo-Jesus here.

The real question is, can Ironman defeat the Fallen?

Iron Man wins. I think this has been done before too.

The main argument was that the military was able to harm the transformers after acquiring intel on them.

Stark is more advanced than anything the military packs.

He is also faster, and times it seems that he's shown to be more durable than SOME transformers.

I go with Stark 8/10

In Mark 7 armor, maybe. Those mini-missiles and the red wrist lasers and his repulsors would overwhelm Fallen IMO, since Optimus had almost no difficulty with him, & was able to punch right through him.

The Fallen could practically teleport. What about Megatron with his energy blasts that cut through Sentinal like nothing?

Stark will win maybe, but if optimus used some of his proper transformer weaponry he will one shot him.

In melee? Iron-man dies horribly. Optimus is crazily skilled in close quarters, I'd say that on a purely skill basis, Optimus is the most dangerous movie superhero out there, and his energon charged weapons should cut through Stark's armor easily. At range, Optimus is at a disadvantage, and while he does have bigger guns, Iron man is much more nimble, though Optimus could maneuver through the city of chicago with ease with his flight pack.

^^^I agree. Stark would want to keep his distance from Optimus. I'm assuming this is regular Prime without his trailer of weapons and Jetfire gear. I do think if Optimus lands a good shot on Stark he could potentially one-shot him. From a distance Iron Man should be able to dodge Primes projectiles and pick him apart with his weapon systems. I'm just wondering if it will be enough before Optimus can close the distance tho....again depending on which version of Prime we're talking about here.
