“If you’re nothing without the suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” – Tony Stark

15. I’m nothing without the suit

Marvel movie: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Peter Parker got a little too big for his britches. Considering he’s a high school kid working with the Avengers and was selected by Iron Man in person, it’s understandable. A little confidence isn’t a bad thing. When you start to think you know better than your mentor and almost get people killed, that’s another story altogether. The latter is what got Peter in trouble.

Peter wanted to be an Avenger more than almost anything. Getting a new suit from Tony Stark made him feel like he finally hit the big time. He took the trust given in him and disobeyed a direct order. A move that caused who knows how much in property damage and people being hurt. That’s when Tony Stark had to personally step in.

Tony Stark told Peter to give the suit back. Peter pleaded. He said that he was nothing without it. In a callback from The Avengers, Tony said, “If you’re nothing without the suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” Tony knows what it means to prove you’re more than the armor. If he didn’t teach Peter this lesson, he would have become more irresponsible. This was a big moment for Tony Stark as well. This was where Tony set Peter on the path to become the best hero he can be.
