*** Tony becomes a pretty big Papa Wolf to Peter Parker, while trying to give him the support that Howard Stark [[WellDoneSonGuy never gave]] Tony when he was growing up. In ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]]'', he immediately orders Peter to leave the battle field after he gets knocked down by a sixty foot tall Ant-Man, and in ''Film/SpidermanHomecoming'' he saves Spidey from drowning. As it turns out, Tony has been keeping track of Peter using the ''Training Wheels Protocol'' installed inside the [[ClothesMaketheSuperman Techno Spider-Suit]] to curb his actions, while simultaneously protecting him. In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' he gave Peter the Iron Spider-Suit insuring he wouldn’t suffocate in the stratosphere, of course Infinity War also cruelly subverts this by having Tony be helpless to stop Spidey turning into dust in his arms. [[spoiler: In ''Film/AvengersEndgame'' Tony is directly inspired to return to his heroics over Peter and manages to bring Spidey back along with half the universe]].

[[spoiler:It's MisaimedRetribution, it's DisproportionateRetribution, but seriously, how many people are willing to avenge their mentally disabled son's death to a psychotic JerkJock by ''[[JackTheRipoff dressing up as Jason Voorhees]]'' and going on a killing spree?]]

** Clint Barton aka ''Hawkeye'' initially seems like just a ProfessionalKiller, [[spoiler: but it turns he's a FamilyMan, and the reason he keeps his personal life off the record is to protect them]]. In the [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron same movie]] when escorting civilians off the battlefield Clint used his body to shield a little boy from Ultron's gunfire, [[spoiler: only surviving because Quicksilver jumped in to shield ''him'']]. There's also his care and advice to Scarlet Witch which inspires her to become a hero and join the Avengers. [[spoiler: Much like Tony however ''Film/AvengersEndgame'' subverts with Hawkeye as Clint has lost his family thanks to Thanos and is a shell of his former self as a result, to point where he is murdering people in Japan for no particular reason]].
