That nerfing they gave Tony in Civil War is looking more and more ridiculous.
He can take on a Titan. Be the only one to make Thanos bleed, But two Super Soldiers, one of whom he incapacitates early, can take him out? Nope. Not buying it.
Most ridiculous power nerfing ever.
Think about it this way: Tony didn’t really want to hurt them
I don’t see this as nerfing at all; I agree with the above poster, that he didn’t want to hurt them. I think it just shows that Tony was holding back, because he really doesn’t want to hurt them, deep down, no matter how upset he is. I mean he’s so restrained with his repulsors; he really barely uses them, when usually they’re the mainstay of his fighting style. I actually really liked this, because it’s basically how he fought Steve in the comics Civil War. He holds back, visibly, because he has Extremis at the time and could have just destroyed him. He’s not going all out. He’s not going to, not against them. It might even be partially instinctive on his part, but deep down, Tony’s just never going to bring his biggest guns against his friends. Like how he let Rhodey beat him up in IM2.
