Banner is a super genius don’t get me wrong, and I’m sure Hulk fans can find evidence of his knowledge of time travel and such but as far as I know MCU never specified Tony’s qualifications. Which means I have to defer Tony’s qualifications to the comics, and those are far more than just being a mechanic. He has advanced degrees in Physics including specific degrees in Quantum Physics. Plus computer science, chemistry, biology, and then some. Also in the comics Tony never had his PhD until Banner tried to lord it over him and then went and got it just to spite Banner. I get MCU is different but MCU also basically said Tony is a savant by having him become an /expert/ in Bruce’s specialty field (i.g thermodynamics – Avengers) overnight. Not to mention that has always been Tony and Bruce’s dynamic anyway. Bruce’s specialty is in the theoretical. Tony’s specialty has always been in the practical. It’s part of what makes them a great team. Also keep in mind Endgame only had so much time to work with. It’s not perfect and there’s definitely issues but given it is a movie that wraps up a 10 year arc that starts and ends with Tony Stark it makes sense that Tony has preferential treatment. I get that I’m bias because Tony is my favorite character but to harp on something that makes sense both as a character dynamic and a story telling method shows the fan bias for Bruce. (Side note: my favorite comic panel(s) for the Bruce vs Tony is when Bruce says he’s smarter than Tony and Tony walks off looks at himself in the mirror and goes “yeah well at least I’m richer” xD)

I understand that Robert Downey Jr is important to the MCU. I’m not going to deny that he helped start the entire franchise. With that being said, I don’t want him to come back to the MCU. Tony’s character has been destroyed and he doesn’t need to star in anymore movies. Besides the three Ironman movies, he’s starred in five other Marvel movies! I want Tony to stay dead and I want the characters to move on
