I often wonder about the acrobatic ability of powerhouse style characters. Iron Man may be strong and fast and can fly but can he simply jump in the air and do a full backflip/tuck? His range of motion seems limited and I’m not sure if there’s perhaps a scan of him doing a backflip or a similar move, so can he do a backflip?
@mattyboi: I forgot about that scene. It looks like an arabian (Landing facing the opposite side that you started out on) or a cork. That’s pretty sufficient evidence though I meant on his own without repulsors helping, but I imagine just jumping could achieve the same amount of lift
@firestarlord73194: @g2_: Tony is a walking tank and nuclear bomb. He doesn't need to be acrobatic or agile like street levelers who would die from the impacts Iron Man can casually walk through so that's why he doesn't often display that kind of speed or agility. However, there are weapons and scenarios that he comes across that require him to dodge and that agility/speed is displayed:
Some of these might not be EXACT instances where he does a backflip, but again he never really needs to. I think these scans prove that he's agile enough to do one if he needed to.
