Is Spider-Man Trying Too Hard To Fill The MCU’s Iron Man Void?

So, the Spider-Man: Homecoming finale redeemed this Parker’s early reliance on Stark’s gadgets. But in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he has Happy come in on a private jet and save him, before crafting a fancy new Stark suit and blasting Led Zeppelin… sorry, AC/DC on the way there. While Peter does defeat Mysterio with his own wits by the end of Far From Home, I can’t help but shake how bothersome that scene is. Even as a fan of Downey’s Tony Stark who will miss him dearly in the MCU, it felt like it leaned into a strange place. Spider-Man doesn’t have Iron Man’s shoes to fill and they just don’t need to be.
