Some leaps I can make but this is hardly a 1+1=2 scenario. It's compounded by the issue of even if that is what happened then once again we have to see Iron Man at a disadvantage in an end fight. For once can't he just fight the villain at full power? Avengers is about the only time that comes close and even that Mark 7 was untested, "skip the spinning rims, we're on the clock".
