I know Iron Man was the film that started it all and he was the one who basically saved the day but I kinda didn't think he deserved the "honor". 2/3 of his films were just okay to me. Not bad but not "Winter Soldier good". In history, his books were never the most popular. He wasn't a mascot like Spidey, the first like Cap, or the Fantastic Four. But I'm a jaded old asshole. Ignore me. The way they handled his character in Civil War and the Avengers films was great.
