The Biggest Brawls Between Captain America and Iron Man

List RulesThe greatest moments when Captain America and Iron Man fought.

Two sides of the same coin, Captain America and Iron Man are both pillars of the Marvel Universe, but, at the same time, so different. Captain America has the iron clad sense of morality and honor. Iron Man... well, he is just iron clad! Ranker Comics has put together a list of different times the egos of these two heroes bumped against each other a little too much and it got ugly!

Although both are leaders in the Avengers, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are total opposite personalities. Rodgers, coming from the 1940s, holds his honor and morals in very high regard. Frankly, he can be a little stodgy. His buddy, Tony Stark is the epitome of the billionaire playboy and plays it more fast and loose than the good Captain would appreciate. 

Call up Jarvis and have him bring the drinks - Ranker Comics has the ten best conflicts between these two mighty Avengers! Let's just say that when the ground rumbles between these two, the whole world feels it!

    Civil War

    This is the throw down between Captain America and Iron Man. Emotions were high going into the Superhuman Registration Act and only got worse as Iron Man put pressure on the now-outlaw heroes to join up or face prison. 

    Although these two characters have fought side by side countless times, their personalities and ideologies gave way to an epic battle with reverberations still being felt in the Marvel Universe.

  • In the MCU's tune-up before Infinity War and Endgame showed just how epic a crossover it could pull off, Tony and Steve squared off in Captain America: Civil War over the fate of Cap's former sidekick. The Sokovian radical Helmut Zemo put the heroes in each others' way after revealing the Winter Soldier was responsible for Howard and Maria Stark's deaths in the '80s. Captain America stays true to his oldest friend, leading to not only a massive free-for-all in a German airport, but also a down and dirty fight between the two heroes in a decommissioned HYDRA facility.

    Captain America Vol. 1 #341

    As part of the fallout from Tony Stark's Armor Wars, where he stripped anyone using Iron Man tech, Steve Rodgers decides to bring Stark into the authorities for his various offenses. Although there has always been tension between the two heroes, Captain America Vol. 1 #341 is a great example of both men refusing to back down in the face of sacrificing their ideals or desires.

    Avengers Vol. 5 #44

    In the buildup to the massive Secret Wars event, the mainline Marvel 616 universe and Ultimate Marvel universe find themselves on a collision course where only one reality can survive. Captain America is currently the head of SHIELD and on the outs with Tony and the rest of the Illuminati after finding out he was brainwashed due to his unwillingness to sacrifice other realities so the 616 universe could survive. While the final survivors of each universe hide themselves to try and make it through the universal incursion, Cap and Iron Man spend their final moments of existence squaring off in a no-holds-barred faceoff with the 70-year-old Steve (it's a long story that got undone in Secret Wars) wearing a customized version of War Machine's armor to even the playing field.
