#1 – Captain America: Civil War

H:3 Although this feels like a team movie, we must remember that it is actually Cap's story. My consistent problem with Captain America is his lack of growth or development. He is always the solid bastion of truth and righteousness, never making any mistakes, and after a while that gets boring. At least this movie … Continue reading #1 – Captain America: Civil War

#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."

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

#11 – Iron Man 2

H:3 Tony Stark has some undeniable character change during this film. But since it's mostly about him being afraid of dying and pushing away his friends, it's more like he goes a little nuts and then eventually returns to normal rather than really growing. V:2 This was one of the earliest signs of Marvel's villain problem. … Continue reading #11 – Iron Man 2
