"Tony plucked her up and set her on a workbench like she was five years old...It always surprised her how physically strong he was. It shouldn’t. He was a mechanic and the lean, ropey muscles weren’t for show."
This is a line from "Ice and Fire" by SteeleHoltingOn. Reading this I wondered if there was any other fic where someone remarked on or was surprised at how strong Tony Stark actually was. Not Iron Man, but Tony himself. I do recall a scene in Iron Man where I think Tony was working on his suit, wearing a wife beater which showed off his magnificent, muscular upper body.
