So, because the only one who opposed Captain America was Tony, and everyone followed suit, that doesn't make him a leader?

Yes, Tony is capable, but he haven't had a chance to prove himself. He would rather find a better solution "I think I'll just cut the wire." The battle of quips on the helicarrier must have stung Tony more than Steve. Steve has heard it before, it doesn't affect him. Tony haven't, and at the end he proves himself, which is great.

Also there are many other moments. He stands up against Loki, he stops the fight between Iron Man and Thor, he gives instructions to the police in the final battle, and makes the tough call of closing the portal. Also he saves those people on the end too.

You answered yourself that one.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
