Played By: Robert Downey, Jr.

Seen In: Iron Man, Iron Man 2

Superpower: A sharp suit (of armor) and an even sharper wit.

Box Office Power: Both films earned a combined $1.2 billion worldwide

Strengths: Has own theme song, deep pockets, book smarts, can pack one helluva punch.

Greatest Enemy/Threat: Obidiah Stane (Jeff Brides), Ivan Vanko/Whiplash (Mickey Rourke), Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), electromagnetic pulses

Weapon/Gadget of Choice: The suit makes the (Iron) Man.

Catchphrase/Pick-Up Line: “Iron Man. That’s kind of catchy. It’s got a nice ring to it.”


Seen In: Thor

Superpower: Same as Thor, plus the power of persuasion.

Box Office Power: $181 million (does he have to split that with Thor? Add that to the “reasons to hate Thor” list…)
