The civil war was really the worst

You keep in mind Captain America: Civil Struggle — Sokovia Accords, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) on the back, heroes preventing heroes, and so on. And should you keep in mind Civil struggle, then you certainly remember that Tony Stark is absolutely the worst individual. Worse than Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo). Worse than Thaddeus Ross (William Harm). Worse than the one who had the plan, Helmut Zemo (Daniel Bruhl). Stark lectures everyone about the lack of presidential regulation, only to turn around and go rogue in an attempt to assassinate a tortured POW who was in no way consciously responsible for his actions, including the murder of Stark’s mother and father. Harsh? Maybe. But then you definitely have a look at the main occasions as much as Civil struggle and the occasions within it, well, it doesn’t take long before you know that Tony Stark is actually a complete Grade A d**ok.


Tony Stark is the only Avenger the Sokovia Accords must keep in check

So let’s start with the actions of the main Avengers as much as Civil struggle. They effectively stopped the Chitauri invasion in the so-called Battle of New York, saving the lives of thousands. They effectively stopped Ultron (James Spader) and his plan that resulted in the extinction of the world while evacuating many harmless Sokovians from the world. And while the event at the start of the film sadly resulted in the deaths of harmless Wakandans, thousands, once again, were spared what would inevitably have been the nefarious use of natural weapons. Any questions that clearly necessitate the need for a UN babysitter. Stark agrees with the Sokovia Accords, why? Following Ultron’s construction, it was accosted by a mother whose son died as a result of the events in Sokovia.

It’s not the Avengers as a collective that needs to be saved: it’s Stark himself. It was his personal initiative to complete the world protection program “Ultron”, with only Banner (Marc Ruffalo) aware of his plans. It was his Ultron who came up with the luxurious idea of ​​eradicating humanity, which led to the raising of the capital of Sokovia into the sky, which ipso facto resulted in the death of innocent people. In fact, he wasn’t responsible for the other two events, and his creation of Ultron was driven by hardcore PTSD, but come on, Tony – the Avengers saved more lives than were lost and cleaned up your mess. It’s like a group of people walk into a shawarma restaurant and everyone gets turned away because one person doesn’t have sneakers or a shirt on.

Tony Stark Shouldn’t Enlist A Teenage Boy In A Fight For Avengers Degrees

Steve Rogers and the gang have gone rogue and take Barnes to stop Zemo. Tony Stark has been authorized by the US Secretary of State to bring others together to put an end to them. His first stop? Queens, New York, to solicit Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland), to affiliate him and his colleagues with the opposition to the faction led by Rogers. Positive, dude got crazy skills, so why not you? Maybe because Parker is just a teenager who hasn’t faced anyone more dangerous than the neighborhood thugs. Primarily, Stark asks the boy to come back and be known to fight seasoned veterans with powers, those who fought global threats. But hey, Stark gave him a new costume, so that has to count for one thing. At least he’ll have something good to wear at his funeral. Why stop there, Tony? You may be able to recruit Cassie Lang (Abby Ryder Fortson) to kick shins or whatever.

Tony Stark is a selfish fool

After the big showdown, a badly involved Stark checks on Rhodes (Don Cheadle), whose back was broken following his fall from the sky. He then approaches Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) and acquainted him with the extent of the accidents at Rhodes. Natasha means that he and Rogers must stop, before someone takes much worse damage than Rhodes. Tony claims, correctly, that she let Rogers and Barnes go. Natasha then retorts with “We did this imperfectly.” Now pause the scene. An acceptable response might also be to look for the harm done and admit that there needs to be a broader approach. , open a dialogue about what went wrong, brainstorm and learn how to fix problems properly. Not Stark, however.

Instead, Tony Stark slams again, “‘We?’ Boy, that should be laborious to shake off the whole double agent factor, huh? It’s still in the DNA. Now think about it for a second. Stark lobbied for the Accords, sided with Ross, reunited a group of superheroes (and a youngster, see above), dragged this group into a confrontation that he knew would escalate, and that confrontation resulted in his friend being injured. no, it’s all on him (see above above) But he takes no part in any of this.

Tony makes a sick scenario even worse

After Rogers’ allies are arrested, Stark visits them in Raft’s super-max prison. Barton (Jeremy Renner) addresses him first, calling on Stark to figure out “what’s best for you, whether you like it or not”. At first, Stark tries to play the gentleman, explaining that he didn’t think they’d be placed in a high-security prison by the ocean. Where the hell did you think they were going, Tony? And argue aimlessly. It’s not that they’re in the Raft, the difficulty is that they’re imprisoned in all respects. SO, he has the audacity to justify it! “Correctly, damn it, Clint. It was against the law and, damn it, you signed it and everything. Even higher, Stark still sees the situation in black and white, with Barton and the others paying the consequences of selecting the faulty side. Not the side that sees things differently, but the side that didn’t choose their side.

By going rogue, all Tony Stark is doing is punishing the already traumatized

After discovering that Barnes was framed for the bomb that killed T’Chaka, and that a brainwashed Barnes was a tortured POW who suffered immensely under Hydra, forced to behave contrary to his own conscience , Stark goes looking for Rogers and Barnes… without telling Ross. Despite all the rhetoric about accountability and the need to verify, Stark withholds this data and comes out on his own anyway. If you disregard what you agreed to in the first moment, it’s not what you want to do, so why bother in the first place?

Stark reveals himself, makes peace with Rogers and Barnes, and they confront Zemo. Only Zemo has a movie to watch, one that reveals that Barnes killed Stark’s mother and father in 1991. Regardless of the understanding that Barnes didn’t consciously accomplish this and that he too is affected by PTSD, there is no empathy. here. Stark goes crazy and starts beating the crap out of Barnes and Rogers. And before you argue that Stark was more offended than Rogers knew and didn’t say, when would Rogers have had a chance to act? And even if he did know, how do you get that back? “Hey, Tony – this type of robotic arm that I was preventing but you weren’t concerned at all, and then we had to fight the robot that you just built – the one you never told us about – that tried to kill everything the world where he was not concerned, and then surely you tried to stop us from coming here? Yah, he killed your mother and your father outright There is an emotional response, after which there is a response emotional that involves high-tech weapons and punching the head with a steel glove.

In The AvengersTony Stark stopped the Chitauri risk by taking a nuclear missile through the wormhole, and The Avengers: Endgame he sacrificed his personal life to stop Thanos and bring those lost back into the Blip, so maybe it’s an understatement to say he did penance for his Civil struggle Shares. Let’s just hope St. Peter hasn’t stopped watching the MCU movies there.
