Reason Iron Man recruited Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War

Why did a great hero like Iron Man decide to find a teenager like Spider-Man and take him into a battle against Marvel's greatest heroes? Tony Stark had a compelling reason.

The movie of Captain America: Civil War 2016 featured the most shocking battle between the marvel heroes, on one side was the team of Hombre de Hierro and on the other, his own Captain America. In that confrontation all those heroes that had already been presented previously appeared except Black panther whose introduction was very natural and Spider-man which appeared to have been added at the last minute. But everything has a good explanation.

Regardless of the contractual issue that they were able to resolve, since SONY had the cinematographic rights to Spider-man and they gave in to the character when the filming of the film was half done, the own Hombre de Hierro he had his reasons.

You have to remember that in the movie, Tony Stark is presented directly at the house of Peter parker. He already knows that this young man has powers and that he helps the people of New York at the same time that he is gaining relevance on YouTube. So after a short talk, Hombre de Hierro has already convinced him to travel to another country to stick with his heroes, the Avengers.

This is the real reason Tony Stark recruited Peter Parker.

The decision of Hombre de Hierro to involve Spider-man has to do with her complicated relationship with him Captain America. When this issue was raised at the Civil War press conference, the director Joe russo explained that there were two connected reasons why Tony specifically sought out Spider-man for your team. First of all, I didn't want to lose the fight with Steve Rogers because Tony Stark he didn't like to lose, and at that point in his life, he did believe that superheroes needed some limitations after what happened in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Second, Tony wanted to catch only the Winter Soldier, since he didn't want to hurt any of the other heroes. He could also use the surprise factor.

Spider-man at that time it was the "Best non-lethal living weapon", as he deduced from the images on YouTube. So it turned out to be perfect for his plan. By bringing in Peter Parker, he increased his chances of defeating the Captain America and his team, but with no intention of hurting either of them. As Hombre de Hierro wanted the Avengers to come back intact, especially with the lingering feeling that something big was coming, which he was ultimately right about, as demonstrated in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) with the arrival of Thanos. Tony said this himself in his first meeting with Steve before Spider-man even make his grand entrance. He appealed to the Super Soldier to give in due to their existing relationship. Unfortunately, the Captain America he wanted to protect his friend at all costs, Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier).

After that battle their relationship became more intense.

It might be a while before Tony fully agreed to be Peter's mentor, but it was clear that he felt responsible for the young hero from the start. He provided him with an upgraded suit and told him to keep his distance and not get hurt during the airport battle of Captain America: Civil War. Her genuine affection for Peter only increased as they spent more time together, so much so that Hombre de Hierro was willing to risk his life just to bring back Spider-man in Avengers: Endgame (2019). Not forgetting, that he left all his technology to him so that he could continue to be a great hero that protected humanity.
