So, here's my second MCU respect thread and its for Iron Man. I know people asked for Cap next, but I had a lot of gifs for Iron Man already made. I promise i'll do Cap next. Again, same deal, comment if you have a good feat I should add or provide a detailed counter for ones you disagree with. AoU feats are hard to find video's for, so i'll edit them in later on.

Shall we begin?

Reaction Time

Iron Man actually has a couple of really impressive reaction time feats.

From Iron Man
From Iron Man

Here Iron Man dodges a missile from a tank after it had been fired. Assuming that is a HE shell, it's going at roughly 1.2 KM per second.

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

Again we have Tony dodging a missile after it has been fired.

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

Here he dodges a weight thrown by War Machine. While not as impressive as the other two, it still serves to show Iron Man's impressive reaction time in H2H.

Strength & Striking Feats

Iron Man has a large number of highly impressive striking feats against a variety of opponents.

From Iron Man
From Iron Man

Here Iron Man punches a human flying into the sky, who hit a concrete wall hard enough to leave a crater.

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

Here Iron Man effortlessly kicks a Rolls Royce Phantom, which weighs two and a half tons, dozens of meters away

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

Here Iron Man punches his way through Hammer drones hard enough to create sparks and heat the metal, as indicated by the glowing edges of the drones broken carapaces.

From Avengers
From Avengers

Here we see Iron Man engaging Thor in H2H combat. He manages to completely shatter a section of a treeafter he kicks Thor through it, as well as knocking him down with a strike and throwing him some distance into an uprooted tree. This is impressive as Thor is one of the most powerful characters in the MCU, capable of engaging The Hulk in H2H combat. While Thor does have a clear edge in the fight, Iron Man manages to hold his own.

Here we see what I consider one of Iron Mans signature moves, the Bull Rush. He has consistently used it to overpower and gain the advantage over more physically powerful characters.

From Iron Man
From Iron Man

Here Iron Man catches and lifts a car even after depleting his energy reserves to less than 20%.

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

Here Iron Man knocks War Machine back with one strike after hitting him with a weighted bar.

Repulsers and Arsenal

Iron Man has an extensive arsenal that allows him to attack his opponents with a large variety of attacks.

Iron Man's repulser attacks are powerful enough to send regular humans into concrete and crack it, knockdown superior opponents like Iron Monger, Loki and Thor, and can fired in rapid succesion with varying degrees of power. They have been shown to burn holes in flesh

Iron Man also has access to multiple forms of powerful missiles and elite targeting systems.

From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2

One of Iron Mans most powerful attacks, his laser can cut through most substances.

Speed

Exceptionally fast when flying, Iron Man is one of the fastest character sin any CBM.

From Avengers
From Avengers

Here is one of his most ridiculously fast feats,he is leaving multiple after images he is moving that fast.

From Iron Man
From Iron Man

Breaking the sound barrier.

Durability

Iron Man's suit is capable of sustaining heavy damage, taking hits from a missile, Iron Monger, Whiplash and Thor with little to no effect.

From Iron Man
From Iron Man
From Iron Man
From Iron Man
From Iron Man 2
From Iron Man 2
From Avengers

Note that Whiplash's attacks were cutting cars to pieces in one hit, while Thor's hammer is one of the hardest hitting objects in all CBM's.

Again, sorry to all those people who asked for Cap, he will be next, it's just that I had a lot of gifs pre-made for Iron Man.

@spector_rand:

No, not rly. His reaction times in the movies are on a human level.

Here Iron Man dodges a missile from a tank after it had been fired. Assuming that is a HE shell, it's going at roughly 1.2 KM per second.

You can do it Yourself, want a proof? Go to the link below, play the movie, try to do it Yourself. Dodge once You see it fires, You will move Your body by the exact same distance as IM did. - so no not impressive at all.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRCTPq2QEGc

Here he dodges a weight thrown by War Machine. While not as impressive as the other two, it still serves to show Iron Man's impressive reaction time in H2H.

Again, duable. In the movie he is just a regular human... that is all.

@botanix: I'd have to respectfully disagree. I haven't heard of someone regularly dodging missiles. The video you posted was just the clip of him dodging the missile, was that a wrong link?

Edit- I just read your full comment, I don't really understand what you're trying to say?

@spector_rand: what is there to understand? of course you did not hear because nobody is stupid enough to try it. How far is that tank, 300 metres? That gives you around 0.3 sec to dedge it. There was an episode on mythbusters proving given enough distance human can dodge a bullet providing you can see a gunfire. Many other tests were done, lots of info onthe internet, if u want to know more, then read. Of course bullet is slower butthe distance was also smaller. So if you add the distance and speed it will make no differrence if its gun or tank. It is doable, risky but doable. Im sure lots of people will disagree but i dont care, people tend to disagree not knowing the facts. They just disagre becsuse they think its impossibile, it does not mean that it is. And i do not argue with closed minded people, its a waste of my time ( not saying that you are ) i am not here on a mission to teach. Math does not lie.

@spector_rand: why do i need to prove obious mathematical facts? Is it some kind of hidden knowledge? Average human reacts in 0.2 sec and below, do the math and prove it yourself.

Shell travels at the speed of 1200m per sec, in 0.2 sec it will teavel 240 metres, tanks is 300 metres away, it is doable, if it was closer then 240 metres, well then you would have a problem. As long as its more you should be fine. Simple math, what is there too hard to understand?

Now we are talking average human, martial artists have much lower reaction time, reaching even below 0.1 sec... since im has faster reflexes th3n he is around peak human, 0.1 sec do You understand now?

Peak real life human could in theory dodge tank shell fired from 100-120 metres, depending on the tank, and it is a fact. Anything less and you are dead.

@botanix: Reaction time doesn't translate to movement. Just because someone is able to react to an external stimuli does not mean they would be capable of avoiding said stimuli.

Again, all your statements are un-supported and I don't really appreciate the continued questioning of my intelligence.

Naturally, you have to react in order in order to respond, which in this case, is dodging a tank shell.

Then you're 100% sure you can dodge a FTS missile if it was fired 300 metres away from you?

@spector_rand: seriously what is your problem man. Given enough distance people can dodge bullets, not to mention trined people with much faster reflexes. We are obviously not talking point blank here. And again, how lazy u have to be not to search for "can humans dodge bullets", first page man, first! Its right out there man, but you will still denie it, because they do not mention tank shell... im so tired of guys like u in here... really, denie everything because u just cant understand it and accept some facts.

The problem with this is he's using a variety of suits with different measurables. There's no way the briefcase suit is as strong as a normal suit, or that his mk1 chestpiece he used in the Iron Monger fight is as potent as the mk 3 chestpiece he used in avengers. Basically, these are all different characters you're trying to lump into one.

@i_am_lightning: as long as u can see tanks fire ( you have to react to something ) it and your recaction time is on about average person level or better, you can dodge it. It it possibile. Keep in mind peak human reaction time is below 0.1 sec, that even makes it easier.

@i_am_lightning: no they cant dodge sound because sound travel in all directions. object moving at the speed of sound can be dodged. As long as it has been fired from enough distance to give you enough time. You will not be able to see the bullet traveling, but you can dodge it.

@i_am_lightning:Humans are confirmed bullet timers, apparently

What exactly in "given enough time and distance" you do not understand? It does not matter if object is moving 50km/h or 1000 km/h, you can react to both as long as:

  • you can see them being fired ( when tank fires it produces light doesnt it )
  • have been fired from enough distance so you can react to them.

The average bullet travels at 2,500 feet per second (around 1,700 mph). If you reacted to the sound of the gun going off and required 0.20 seconds (twice that of the fastest Olympic sprinters) to react, then you would need to be at least 500 feet away to successfully dodge a bullet.

Which means opymic spritenrs in theory would be able to dodge bullets fired from 500 feet / 2 or 500 feet and bullet speeed 1700mph X 2.

Argue more dude, just because u cant understand something, it does not make it invalid does it.

When it comes to average bullet, the minimum distance for human is around 166 metres - and its a fact.

No, human can do it too. Tank was at least 200 metres away.

And did u see how slow that missle was? Missles speed vary, they can go as slow as 160km/h, depending on a missle.. did u know that? I bet You did not...

Just because it's a missle does not mean its faster then sound... many missles out there can be outrun by a car. For example The M1 launcher missle speed is around 250km/h.

Even it was moving at 160km/h, it's still superhuman.

And thats based on what? Actuall science or just u thinking it is, answer is obvious, u just think its impossibile so it make it impossibile? Lol again...

The average arrow travels at about 250 feet per second. Let’s say you respond at the moment you see the shooter releasing the arrow. With a reaction time of 0.20 seconds, you would need to be 50 feet away to react and dodge the arrow.

If that missle's speed was as fast as average arrow ( around 270km/h ), could be, many missles are slower and nothing in that gif suggest it was faster, since we can see it travel. Then peak human can dodge it from 9 metres away.

Math does not lie, and just because u dont understand it, again it does not make it invalid.
