Massachusetts mom Heather Denno thought it would make her son’s day if she could get Robert Downey, Jr – who was shooting a non-Iron Man movie nearby – to meet the 1½-year-old Iron Man “super-fan.” RDJ, being the awesome guy he is, agrees to meet with little Jaxon. Problem? He showed up in plain clothes, completely shattering the kid’s childhood innocence and sense of wonder into a million Pediasure pieces as evidenced by the above picture.

Heather tells PEOPLE, “[he] was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn’t. Well, not Iron Man in the suit.” But everything was all good once Jaxon started chopping it up with RDJ, “He was fine as soon as he talked to him” said Heather.

Lesson? When you have a choice between letting your kid meet star of Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr or a random stranger in an Iron Man suit, pick the random stranger in the Iron Man suit.
