Playing 'Avengers' Stars Bow Down for Robert Downey Jr. at MTV Movie Awards

When Robert Downey Jr. was presented with the Generation Award, it was clear The Avengers hero has the ultimate movie star persona, and the total respect of his peers and co-stars.

Presented the MTV Movie Award by Avengers co-stars Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans, RDJ proved once again that he really is Tony Stark with his rock star entrance and cocky yet immensely likable demeanor.

His co-stars even knelt down out of respect and love for the man they were honoring when he took the trophy -- and the Iron Man star didn't disappoint when it came to delivering a speech worth watching.

"In the 34 years that have passed since the birth of MTV, I've grown up, I've struggled, I've failed, I've succeeded, I've partied way too much. I've squandered, resisted, surrendered, repented. I've labored, begged for second chances and literally clawed my way to the top," the 50-year-old actor told his adoring audience, referring to his past legal trouble, substance abuse problems and unmatched career comeback.

"If a man is judged by the company he keeps, than I must be doing something right because look who I'm rolling with," he continued, nodding to his kneeling co-stars and friends.

"On behalf of my fellow Avengers, I invite you to dream big, work hard, keep your nose clean, be of service," he added. "Because you can define your generation."

Then, when it didn't seem possible for his speech to get any better, he introduced an amazing, exclusive clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron that featured a healthy portion of the highly anticipated fight between Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor and The Hulk -- apparently turned mad by Scarlet Witch.
