The battle between Chris Evans’ Team Cap and Robert Downey Jr’s Team Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Civil War still consistently stirs up passionate debates online.

Was Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man Right All Along?

Indeed, the saying “with great power comes great responsibility” rings true. The stance taken by Robert Downey Jr.‘s portrayal of Iron Man in the Civil War over the years has ignited debates online. While Team Cap has its supporters, Team Iron Man has also attracted considerable attention. But, post-Doctor Strange 2, fans find themselves increasingly convinced that superpowers require some form of governance.

Similarly, proving that very stance, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, showcases Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda as the primary ‘villain’. Ruthless and violent, she is prepared to eliminate anyone hindering her, regardless of the consequences and that is exactly the reason why fans think her to be overpowered. Wanda’s storyline is bound to create division among fans, especially for those who haven’t witnessed every MCU event shaping her character evolution.

In addition to that, after narrowly surviving an encounter in The Avengers, Tony Stark harbored a persistent fear of an impending extraterrestrial threat. He voiced these concerns in Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, although his warnings were largely ignored. Despite the lack of support, Stark tirelessly worked to prepare Earth for the anticipated danger. In Avengers: Infinity War, his worries were turned into reality with the arrival of Thanos, proving his foresight in Civil War.
