In a totally unscientific poll conducted on Facebook, the readers of FlickFilosopher.com have declared, by a narrow margin, Tony Stark/Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.) their favorite Avenger.
A close second in the poll was Bruce Banner/The Hulk (played by Mark Ruffalo), with Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) coming in third place.
Stark’s appeal is easy to understand, I think. He’s witty, handsome, brilliant, rich, and can fly. He’s basically perfect without being inhumanly flawless. He’s the ideal man, but instead of making us hate him for it, we can’t help but love him.
The next poll opens on Monday. Like me on Facebook to get in on the action.
(I haven’t yet decided what the topic of the next poll will be. Feel free to leave suggestions here.)
