Iron Man casually moves FTE to Karnak. He also makes a self-destructive duplicate of himself and leaves before anyone could notice.

Karnak is this fast for reference:

Iron Man's best quantifiable feats of power

A few people keep acting like Tony's some dude who can't survive a serious hit from Thor or even contend with the Thing which is false. Even without the scaling he can:

He escapes from the center of a Black Hole created by the Godkiller self destructing (scans may be out of order). A normal Black Hole would at least be putting on the intensified pressure of a star. This is a strength, durability, and speed feat ranging anywhere from star to solar system level. Although it really just depends on the person you ask to say whether this is quantifiable or not. The opinions vary from what I've seen

He reacts to and uses his shields to no-sell a blast that had a high enough yield propellant to go to Mars and back. This oneshotted the Hulk but I'm pretty sure it's impressive without scaling.

On short notice he was able to bring out repulsors and ultrasonics with enough FORCE to power a continent. Keep in mind Iron Man was using a mobile CAR armor, not really built to be able to hang with the Hulk. This was an Extremis amped Doc Green Hulk who was angrier than ever on top of that.

In his classic armor he was able to blast a massive hole through multiple mountains dropped on them by molecule man with one full power repulsor blast. Thor even said he was struggling get through those mountains and they were stated to be dense enough to go on for miles. This feat probably exceeds a gigaton of force at least. His newer armors should be a lot more powerful.
