    Undoubtedly.

    It ALSO shows just how far Tony has come since his early stuff when he goes all out. Hulk, with a sneak attack and basically free shots for the first moment of their fight did something between jack and squat to Thanos, before Thanos literally knocked the Hulk out of the movie. Tony clearly managed to hurt the guy a tiny bit. No, Tony was NEVER going to "win" that fight, but it was impressive as hell.

    I just saw "Aquaman" and can safely say there was nothing Black Mantis did in that movie that MCU Iron-Man cannot do and do better.

    Possibly, although the fact that he managed to disassemble it, then reassemble it in a completely different form and it still worked at all shows he's a pretty smart guy. Plus it could still melt steel and burn Aquaman so it's still a dangerous weapon. When he next shows up perhaps he'll have got it back to its original power level.

    I stand corrected.

    You could put comic Manta against MCU IM and Tony still wins.
