coarse Tropes and Themes
- Not Steve Rogers Friendly: Steve Rogers often gets the brunt of the blame considering he lead the opposing team in Captain America: Civil War, has had a previously antagonistic relationship with Tony Stark, and is seen as personally betraying Tony Stark by not telling him the truth about Bucky Barnes.
- Some works portray Steve as confused and over his head, or as dangerously anti-social due to the stress of skipping forwards in time by 70 years.
- Not Wanda Maximoff Friendly: For similar reasons, Wanda Maximoff is frequently bashed in fanworks. Many members of Team Iron Man point to her previous connection with HYDRA and her failure to stop the bombings in Lagos at the start of Captain America: Civil War.
- PTSD: Works often portray Tony Stark’s canonical PTSD favorably.
- Public Support: Fanworks often portray the general public as supporting Tony Stark, due to his history of philanthropy and the feeling that the Sokovia Accords would provide protection against overstepping by superheroes.
- The Sokovia Accords only formed part of the divide in the movie, but meta on both sides tends to focus on defining the meaning and content of the Sokovia Accords.
- Injury: Canon divergence where Tony Stark is (often permanently) injured in the battle with Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers at the end of the film. Examples include blindness or losing fingers due to frostbite.
- HYRDA: Since Tony is left alone after the battle with a seemingly broken suit, fics where HYDRA captures Tony are fairly common.
