humiliate and insult me? hahahaha! way to go debater. Thor and Tony had been at it for a while before cap came into the picture. Thor attacks cap and what does cap do? he covers his head and is saved by his shield. my question to you is simple; for how long do you think cap stands against Thor in a straight up fight? would he last as long as tony did?
Hold on, so by your logic, I can ask; How long do you think Tony would've lasted without his suit? Would Steve have lasted longer without his shield than Tony would've without his suit? I'm willing to bet my life he would've at least landed a hit, no matter how weak or strong.
