Who Will Win Civil War Team Iron Man

IRON MAN/TONY STARK

The face of the Sokovia Accords, Iron Man heads the charge for superhero oversight by government

The face of the Sokovia Accords, Iron Man heads the charge for superhero oversight by government

Intelligence: 6. Guy’s responsible for countless advances in technology, but he ain’t God
Strength 5. He’s physically redirected a nuclear missile, but his main suit isn’t a match for the Hulk
Speed 5. Tony raced down said nuclear missile.
Durability 6. He went toe-to-toe with Thor and took it like a champ
Energy Projection 6. Bristling with repulsors, lasers, and missiles, he’s a walking/flying arsenal
Fighting Skills 2. Tony’s a lover, not a fighter

Powers/Weapons: Robotic suit granting durability, strength, speed, armament, and flight, which in particular, merits another point. Don’t forget, Iron Man’s got a suit for every contingency, meriting 3 more points. Plus 4.

Score: 34


 

WAR MACHINE/JIM RHODES

Stark's go-to guy, War Machine is Iron Man lite and was, at one point, in the government's employ.

Stark’s go-to guy, War Machine is Iron Man lite and was, at one point, in the government’s employ.

Intelligence: 4. Only a little better than average as he is a ranking Lieutenant Colonel
Strength: 5. His suit began life as an Iron Man prototype
Speed: 5. See above…
Durability: 6. Also above…
Energy Projection: 5. War Machine’s a flying armory of military ordinance, but light on lasers
Fighting Skills: 4. Basic training includes a combat regimen. No doubt he’s retained a few things

Powers/Weapons: Robotic suit granting durability, strength, speed, armament, and flight, which in particular, merits another point.

Score: 30


 

BLACK WIDOW/NATASHA ROMANOV

Likely Stark's intelligence officer, Natasha is a master spy and infiltrator

Likely Stark’s intelligence officer, Natasha is a master spy and infiltrator

Intelligence: 5. You don’t know you’re being played until it’s over. Just ask Loki.
Strength: 3. Red Room training or not, she’s still human
Speed: 4. Agile & quick, she knows how to move
Durability: 3. That leather jumpsuit probably won’t stop a bullet
Energy Projection: 4. Widow’s stunsticks and Widow’s Sting gauntlets pack a punch, but not much of one
Fighting Skills: 5. Skilled in a few forms of martial arts, but she’s no master.

Powers/Weapons: Stun sticks, Widow’s Sting, all accounted for above.

Score: 24


 

BLACK PANTHER/T’CHALLA

Heir to the Wakandan throne and a skilled technological engineer, Black Panther is Marvel's Batman and so much more.

Heir to the Wakandan throne and a skilled technological engineer, Black Panther is Marvel’s Batman and so much more.

Intelligence: 6. Again, ruler of Wakanda and a brilliant scientist. Boom.
Strength: 4. Not super-human, but in peak physical condition
Speed: 4. See the trailer? Guy can run.
Durability: 5. Panther’s costume is vibranium weave, which is durable as hell and absorbs vibration
Energy Projection: 0. Energy blasts? Black Panther don’t care.
Fighting Skills: 6. A master of multiple martial arts, Black Panther can take nearly anyone in a fight

Powers/Weapons: Vibranium-laced suit grants durability. Wields vibranium throwing daggers, meriting another point.

Score: 26


 

VISION

Intended to be Ultron 2.0, Vision is a synthezoid, a perfect mix of humanity and machine

Intended to be Ultron 2.0, Vision is a synthezoid, a perfect mix of humanity and machine

Intelligence: 6. Formerly Jarvis, and a living computer prone to waxing poetic.
Strength: 4. Sure, he lifted Thor’s Hammer, but that’s “super worthiness,” not super strength.
Speed: 5. He’s a fast flier, but he’s not hypersonic
Durability: 7. Vision is literally made of vibranium. He’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Energy Projection: 6. The Mind Gem allows Vision to project powerful energy blasts. From his mind.
Fighting Skills: 3. He likes sticking his hand through things, I guess

Powers/Weapons: vibranium body grants durability, Mind Gem grants laser beams. Vision can fly and alter his density to intangibility or utterly indestructible. 3 more points.

Score: 34
