Captain America and Iron Man have always fought together despite not getting along most of the time. Their greatest feud happened in Captain America: Civil War, and since then, things have never been the same for the two superheroes.
In a magical twist of fate, Captain America and Iron Man swapped roles in Avengers Unlimited #1. In the new Marvel Comics issue, they work together to bring down a pair of opponents. Their best strategy, albeit unexpected, is to switch roles.
Captain America Wears The Suit, Iron Man Takes The Shield
Created by David Pepose, Farid Karami, DC Alonso, and VC’s Joe Sabino, the story follows Captain America and Iron Man in the middle of a sparring session when two villains interrupted them. They were sent to take out both Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Ghost hacked Iron Man’s suit and made it believe that Tony was an imposter. Taskmaster goes toe-to-toe with Steve, the latter almost getting killed after being beaten to death.
When Tony saw that Steve was in trouble, he activated an emergency protocol that would protect and save his fellow Avenger. Tony, then, takes the shield to defend himself. The swapping of roles saved both of them in the end. Iron Man has ultimately stopped Ghost, and Captain America has blasted Taskmaster using the repulsor from the suit. The villains withdrew, and the two discovered that Nick Fury has something to do with the attack.
This unexpected team-up proved that resourcefulness and quick thinking goes a long way. Tony was able to save Steve by immediately summoning a life-saving protocol as well as himself by picking up the shield. This only means that being a hero is not about what costume you wear or armor you use – it takes trust, intuition, and strength of will to defeat the enemies.
