Actor Robert Downey Jr's reputed to be as smart-mouthed IRL as he is as Tony Stark/Iron Man on screen, so his fellow Avengers seized gleefully on the chance to revenge themselves while posting birthday wishes for the actor, now 52. Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, posted this deceptively worded tweet: "Happy birthday to the legendary @robertdowneyjr. Mento. Life-saver. Friend. Hope your birthday is like a giant kiss on the lips." Which sounds super sweet until you check out the GIF he attached with it (let's not forget how fractious the dynamics between Iron Man and Captain America are in the films):
