With the release of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, the movie performed well on the box-office, with a record of $2.798 billion globally. It was a movie of massive scale, matching, if not surpassing all other MCU movies.
It had a massive cast with almost every Marvel superhero in it. Endgame earned a lot of love from MCU fans all around due to its rom-com, action, fantastic cast of 63 actors. With the thrills and craziness of the movie, it ended up becoming the highest grossing movie of all time.
The movie ended on a hard tone for many fans as Iron Man sacrificed himself to save the universe.
But due to some twisted squabble of heavenly timelines, there are still some superheroes who weren’t able to meet him during Stark’s time in the MCU.
So we at Fandomwire have decided to make a list of superheroes that weren’t able to meet Iron Man.
But let us inform you that this list does not count the final battle against Thanos at the end of the movie. The motive of this list is to educate fans as to which Marvel superheroes he hasn’t met physically.
We are not even criticizing the heroes who died before the events of Avengers: Endgame like Yondu.
In the battle of Infinity War, Stark met a lot of characters, namely Dr. Strange and the Guardians.
He has also teamed up with other characters in the Avenger’s films.
He has almost met all the sidekicks, even meeting Captain Marvel in Endgame. But here are some he didn’t get a chance to meet before he died.
1. He has never compared Bad Dad notes with Wasp
Before he sacrificed himself in Endgame, Tony was not able to meet any other member of Ant-man’s team. However, he met Scott Lang, aka Ant-man twice. First, at the end of the Civil War and then later in Avengers: Endgame. We see Hope Van Dyne, aka Wasp, come out of one of the portals in Endgame, and she barely got a chance to connect with Iron Man.
2. Never had the pleasure of meeting Gamora
Infinity War’s plot proceeded as such that when Tony reaches Titan where he meets Peter Quill and the rest of the Guardian. But he is unaware of who Gamora is.
By the time Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange meet them all, Gamora has already been taken to the planet Vormir by Thanos to get the Soul Stone, and later gets killed by him.
Even the “new” version of Gamora that has time-traveled from 2014 didn’t get a chance to meet Iron Man.
3. Iron Man didn’t get to tour Shuri’s lab
Shuri Black Panther’s younger sister got to play a vital role in Infinity War as she got to be science Bros with Bruce Banner.
But then, Iron Man was on Titan. We know that Tony is the smartest man in the MCU, which means when he comes back to Earth in Endgame and retires with his family in the woods, he might have known who Shuri is. But this leads to a fascinating question, and that is if Tony has ever been to Wakanda? There’s very little info about this, but it looks like Tony has missed out on the world of Black Panther.
He never got a chance to witness all of Wankand’s technology or even Shuri’s entertaining nature.

4. Iron Man hasn’t paid respect to the New Queen of Asgard; Valkyrie
Spider-Man was able to meet Valkyrie in Avengers: Endgame when he says, “Nice to meet you.” Even Rocket Raccoon got to meet her at the New Asgard when they went to get Thor for the final battle. She became good friends with Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok.
But that was not possible with Tony. He has not even met any of Asgard’s people except Thor.
5. Iron Man never got to Name Groot “Treebeard”
How is it possible that Tony never got to meet Groot?
Well, the answer to this question is that when in Infinity War, all the other Guardians, along with Iron Man, Spider-man, and Dr. Strange were fighting Thanos at Titan, Groot and Rocket were with Thor to forge his new hammer Stormbreaker. And then he joined everyone at the Wakanda fight, where he got erased from existence. Later, when he joined everyone at the final battle, he didn’t have the opportunity to meet Iron Man. Imagine Tony assembling with a sentient tree. He would have created some pretty jokes on Groot.
