Captain America and Iron Man have had many differences over the years, throughout their interactions and participation in Marvel Comics stories, but especially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of its main and greatest conflicts took place thanks to the fact that the Captain America hid the truth about the death of Iron Man’s parents.
In the MCU, Tony Stark’s parents Howard and Maria Stark are killed in a car accident in 1991, which is later revealed to be a murder carried out by Bucky Barnesthe Winter Soldier.
Captain America, although he was aware of this, decided not to tell Iron Man anything, and let him believe that his parents died in an unfortunate accident. However, the hero had his reasons to hide the truth. Next, we will explain the possible reasons that Steve Rogers had to hide the truth.
These are the reasons why Captain America hid the truth about the death of Iron Man’s parents
In 1991, Tony Stark’s parents set out on a trip to the Bahamas, planning to stop at the Pentagon, to deliver the super soldier serum, developed by Howard Stark.
While they were on their way to the Pentagon, Tony’s parents are victims of a car “accident”which was actually a covert assassination, caused by the Winter Soldier, sent by HYDRA, with the aim of stealing the super-soldier’s serum.
Tony Stark believed that his parents had been killed in an accident and had no idea that it was planned. Unlike him, Steve Rogers (Captain America) knew the whole truth about the death of the Starks, but decided to withhold that information, and not tell Tony anything.
Although there is no doubt that it was a somewhat selfish decision, the hero had reasons not to tell Tony anything. It is very probable that, by hiding this great secret, Steve was trying to protect his two friends.
Bucky was a childhood friend of Steve’ssince before he even became Captain America, and he well knew that his friend had no control over his actions as the Winter Soldier.
In addition, Steve was also clear that Bucky had regrets.and he was trying to get over his past, so it is reasonable that he decided to protect his friend from reliving those past events that haunted him.
On the other hand, by not saying anything to Stark, he also he was saving his fellow Avenger some great paintaking into account the weight that the death of his parents had had on him.
It is also possible that it was very difficult for Steve to tell Stark that his (Captain America’s) best friend, Bucky Barnes, had been the person responsible for the death of Howard and Maria Stark.
Although Tony Stark definitely deserved to know the truth, it must have been extremely difficult for Steve. being in the middle of his two friends, and having to hurt one of them in order not to hurt the other.
