Avengers Endgame’s final battle involving Earth’s Mightiest Heroes came to a stunning end when Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr) stole the Infinity Stones from Thanos (Josh Brolin) and used them against him. While telling the villain “I am Iron Man!” he snapped his foe out of existence and saved the Marvel universe. Previously in the film, however, The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) failed to handle the might of the Infinity Stones altogether. A new theory suggests Tony Stark had better control of the Stones because he created his own synthetic stone in a previous film. 

The theory stems from 2010 movie Iron Man 2 which focussed on Tony and the shrapnel trapped in his chest. 

The shrapnel floating through his bloodstream came from a bomb that hit him in the opening scenes of Iron Man. To combat these fragments of metal from killing him, he created a collider to place within his chest and keep himself alive. 

After battling against Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) in Iron Man 2, Tony eventually made a new element to keep himself alive.

This infinitely-powerful element became the chest piece of all of Tony’s Iron Man suits in the films that followed and originally came from plans written by his father, Howard Stark (John Slattery).

However, the plans from this element first came from Howard studying the Tesseract.

During the events of Avengers Infinity War Thanos crushed the Tesseract and revealed it was housing the Space Stone.

This means the plans Tony deciphered from his father’s work originally came from an Infinity Stone.

Therefore, the element and power supply he housed in his chest in every Iron Man suit was actually a synthetically created Infinity Stone.

By wielding a stone and using its power for years, Tony would have been able to do some incredible things, including taking on the power of the stones in the first place.

Tony’s acclimation to the seventh stone might also explain why his suits had become so advanced in the most recent films.

In particular, Infinity War and Endgame showed Tony’s suit had the ability to transform using nanotechnology.

The seventh stone might also explain how he knew how to create the time machine in Endgame as well.

Tony’s infinity stone research also means Peter Parker (Tom Holland) now has plans for a synthetic stone.

2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home included a scene that showcased Tony’s technology and information being passed on to Peter following his death.

Considering Peter has one of the sharpest minds in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he may be able to utilise this synthetic stone information for his own suits in future films, just like his mentor did.

Tony’s death left quite the gap in the Avengers line-up, but in a recent interview Captain America star Chris Evans responded to the notion of Downey Jr being replaced as the hero in future movies. 

He said: “I don’t think there is anything anyone on this planet can do that would somehow improve upon what Downey has done.”

Evans continued: “I don’t consider that a role that’s gonna be like a James Bond or a Superman or Batman, that somehow other people get a bite at the apple. [Downey Jr] is Iron Man, the end.”

The 39-year-old actor went on to joke he would consider becoming Iron Man, however, adding: “The paycheques would be nice.

“The role is so fun, the role is… you know, he’s the engine he’s the life. But I suppose that’s kind of signing up for failure.”

The Avengers films are available on Disney Plus now.
