#4 – Iron Man

H:5 Iron Man is perhaps the hero that has had the most development and change of any hero in the MCU. I remember watching this movie when my mom walked in the room and her complaining about how bad a guy Tony starts out as. I explained to her that his transformation is basically the … Continue reading #4 – Iron Man

#5 – The Avengers: Age of Ultron

H:5 In a film this packed with heroes, it's hard to know exactly who to consider the "main character."

And, in that sense, the team has huge … Continue reading #5 – The Avengers: Age of Ultron

#6 – Marvel’s The Avengers

Rudd brilliantly played the lovable goof, but made a believable performance as a loving and concerned father, too. The problem is that he basically spends the entire … Continue reading #7 – Ant-Man

But this is why the movie does so well - could his character go through more development? He goes from hiding behind … Continue reading #8 – Iron Man 3

#9 – Captain America: The First Avenger

H:2 Let's be honest, guys: as great as Chris Evans is, Steve Rogers is probably the most boring super hero ever, second only to Superman. Sounds harsh, but look at him: aside from his sciencey-magic-potion transformation from weakling to super soldier, he has zero character development. He doesn't grow or change at all as a character. He … Continue reading #9 – Captain America: The First Avenger
