Wait, is these comic versions or MCU versions?
@noone1996: I'm talking about what Stark is able to do physically without his suit, here. Not what he can actually achieve if given time and resources.
Considering how the whole GOTG team were demoted from B5 to Blake's 7 under Bendis, its no major surprise that IM has had more impressive in-panel feats over the last 4 years.
@noone1996: I honestly can't remember anything particularly remarkable from IM before 2008 or so when the movie came out which greatly boosted his importance, after that the writers -dare I say, wanked him pretty hard for awhile. While not unimportant during the 80's and 90's he most certainly wasn't the powerhouse he is now.
Then again IM & Avengers never were my favorites during those years so I may have missed quite a bit from IM's best showings and as such have somewhat biased view.
@wewlad80: it doesn't have to be mentioned, you just use common sense. What IM armour consistently deals with means that arrow shouldn't be able to pierce his suit. And you didn't answer the question.
Still no proof at all that the arrow was any different
Iron Man still stomps. I know everybody likes the underdog story, but there isn't anything that Rocket could come up with that Tony couldn't dodge, tank, absorb, or counter.
Are you saying that Iron man's suits can tank a blast that could ko/paralyze a semi weakened Thanos when only turned up to 1/4 power? Thanos didn't even argue with Rocket when he threatened him with it. That was during Thanos Imperative and that was just a suit with a cannon attached that Rocket had lying around on the Guardian's ship.
@spambot: IIRC, that was just a statement. He could have been bluffing when he said that to Thanos. Not only that, but Iron Man is much faster than Rocket and could not only scan how powerful a weapon is, but then dodge it if need be after assessing its threat level.
@noone1996: ya but the way its written I really don't think he was bluffing and Thanos seemed to prob know what the tech was he had pointed at him or else wouldn't have backed down. In close quarters I'm not sure he could dodge it either. Then there's also the anti matter grenade they had lieing around also which was able to disintegrate Thanos. What I'm saying is simply that Rocket does have access to tech that could vaporize Iron Man on very short notice much less 24 hrs and its arguable that if Rocket knows who he is up against he couldn't figure out a way to hit Tony with it. Far from a given that Tony wins here imo.
@spambot: The way that it's written we also never actually see Rocket ever use this weapon. At all. So until further notice, it's featless. Was the anti-matter grenade Rocket's tech? I could have sworn it was Drax's. It's true that Rocket can get his hands on some good technology, but the fact that Iron Man can disarm (via magnetism), incapacitate (via EMP), dodge (via speed/flight), and possibly tank (via force-fields) anything Rocket decides to use, I think that makes this a pretty uneven match-up. Is it impossible for Rocket to hurt or even defeat Tony? No one is saying that it is, but I just don't see that happening a majority (or even a minority) of times.
@noone1996: Well if you want to call the phasic cannon featless be my guest but imo its definitely something Rocket has access to that is capable of putting Thanos level beings down. Also, given that Rocket is the tech junkie of the Guardians it seems more than likely that Drax borrowed the grenade from Rocket to use on Thanos. Borrowed as in just took it and since it was in the ship it seems more than likely that Rocket knows about them and could get more of them if he wanted to.
