Tony Stark’s relationship with Peter Parker in the MCU was a favorite among fans, but it also made the former a hypocrite. That’s how.
Iron Man had a hard time dealing with being a superhero and was constantly obsessed with him, and his relationship with Spiderman It ended up making him a hypocrite, here’s why. The Marvel Cinematic Universe began in 2008 with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, which featured Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and set the tone for subsequent films as well as the basis for the formation of the Avengers. Since then, Marvel Studios has produced over 20 movies and is still expanding, with both movies and TV shows.
Iron Man served as the leader of the first three phases of the MCU, collectively known as the Infinity Saga, where he went through all sorts of troubles: from being kidnapped to saving the world from an alien attack to even seeing his team split in two. factions. Along the way, Tony found a young hero to lead: Peter Parker (Tom Holland), an amateur hero from Queens who got a major upgrade from Tony and joined his team in Captain America: Civil War. Tony’s arc came to an end in Avengers Endgame, leaving Spider-Man as his successor, but that only makes Iron Man a hypocrite.

As mentioned above, Tony struggled with his superhero duty for most of his arc in the MCU. During the first act of Iron ManTony realized that he had been using his intelligence, money, and power for the wrong purposes, and did his best to make up for it by building (and improving) Iron Man’s armor and serving as a hero. Most of the time, Tony found himself haunted by his past, his current actions, and his duty as Iron Man, which along with a great deal of trauma from both his family background and everything that happened as Iron Man (particularly the attack from Loki on the Avengers) almost knocked him down a couple of times, and ended up passing superhero duty to an even less equipped young man.
By the time Holland’s Spider-Man made his MCU debut, he had already been fighting crime in a home-made suit and gear, and while no one can deny that he definitely has what it takes to be a hero, he still is. quite immature, especially compared to the rest of the MCU heroes. Spider-Man has the potential to be a great leader, but he’s not ready to take on that role yet, and Iron Man did exactly what he fought for so long. By making him his successor, Tony Stark is also passing that burden on to young Peter Parker, who is much younger and inexperienced than Tony when he became Iron Man, making him vulnerable to the same fears and struggles he went through, though potentially worse as it has seen even greater disasters than it did.
In fact, Spider-Man’s troubles have already begun, as in the mid-credits scene from Spider-Man: Far From HomeQuentin Beck, aka Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), left a video message framing Spider-Man for many disasters around the world and revealing his true identity. Although Iron ManHypocrisy will make Spider-Man’s journey in the MCU even more interesting, it seems a bit cruel that that burden and the demons that accompany it have passed a young hero like Spiderman.
