Deano’s answer to: “If Asgardian ‘magic’ is actually advanced technology, what stops Tony Stark from reverse engineering it when he and Thor work together on the Avengers?”

Stark is too busy for real science. He has Reed Richards for that… And seeing as Reed himself did manage to clone a 'Thor' who could wield Mjölnir during the Civil War story arc, it stands to reason that Asgardian tech-magic – at least in the comic books – is within the eventual grasp of (super)human science.

The real question for me is: why does regular human magic seem so beyond Stark, Pym, Richards, et al? Only Doctor Doom seems to seriously consider the benefits and implications of understanding and melding magic and technology, and, well, he's not the sharing and caring type.

If Asgardian "magic" is actually advanced technology, what stops Tony Stark from reverse engineering it when he and Thor work together on the Avengers?
