Wouldn't Iron Man fall more along the lines of Batman with your terminology? It's the suit that makes I.M...without it, he's less than Batman. Not to mention the bad ticker he has... Wayne could build his own battle armor (and has) if he wanted although that might cramp his style more on a regular basis. Not trying to blast your opinion but...c'mon, man. Cap falls more under your two examples than Stark IMO. Well, at least Ultimate Cap.
