Without the suit he couldn't have done that, I've read people say that with or without the armour he is Iron Man.
My point is he clearly isn't, thats all
I'm not slating the character, far from it. I'm just stating that unlike many other superheroes he needs the costume to be a superhero and can't shoot repulsors out of his hand, fly, shoot missiles or other feats without his costume thus can't be Iron Man without it, which is why the ending of IM3 makes no sense (quitting as iron man but still calling himself iron man)
(P.S good points about Cap and Bats, though limited without their gadgets they still have the same abilities)
