True on all points, but I'd ignore Onslaught and definitely civil war, it ain't cannon with me. Punisher is cool to me mostly because he has no powers at all, and he is a vietnam vet and a little off his rocker. I'm going off subject, and the "interaction" point aside, Tony Stark is also one of the most realistic heros in my opinion....he's got no powers, and he is really good at only one thing...making bad-ass weapons of mass destruction. to me he is more realistic than batman...he's not an expert in EVERYTHING, just his specialty (technology and science) and he was even based in "Silicon Valley" for a good while.
