Everything was going basically according to plan until the kid in the Iron Man costume decided to call an audible. Instead of responding to The Mad Titan’s “I am inevitable” with Tony Stark’s “I am Iron Man,” they opted for an emphatic Captain Americainstead. Now, Cap did his part in holding off Thanos after both of his teammates were incapacitated in the fight. But, wow, to not give the guy responsible for saving the human race his due, that’s cold. (I’m only kidding of course!) But, this very cute video goes to demonstrate that … [Read more...] about Avengers: Endgame Fan Has Epic Parenting Fail
