We’ve finally reached the home stretch. With Captain America: Civil War only a couple of weeks away, our anticipation for the Phase 3 Marvel films has never been higher. Not only will the film continue the eight-year saga of the original Avengers lineup, but it will introduce new characters to the fray in the form of Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, and – perhaps most notably – Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.

Looking past Civil War, the future has seldom seemed brighter for Marvel Studios. Although the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming recently lost actor Michael Keaton, the film gained a new superstar in the form of Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man. The trailers for Civil War have hinted at a mentorship between the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, so we feel confident in the fact that their relationship will be explored even further when Homecoming finally comes to theaters. With that in mind we have compiled a list of five great reasons why Tony Stark could make a perfect mentor for Spider-Man.

They Both Learned Responsibility The Hard Way
Despite the immense differences between their origin stories, Iron Man and Spider-Man both became heroes due to similar circumstances: a desire to atone for irresponsible mistakes. In the case of Tony Stark, he opted to become Iron Man after spending years recklessly war profiteering; Spider-Man similarly donned his suit to fight crime after refusing to stop a robbery that supposedly wasn’t his problem led to the death of Uncle Ben. At this stage it remains unclear exactly how much of Spider-Man’s origin story will be explored in Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it seems like a safe bet that the mutual guilt felt by both Tony Stark and Peter Parker could play a central role in their inevitable mentor/mentee relationship.
