Yeah Cap was the leader, Tony even deferred to him for orders when they got their **** together in the end.
It should be rephrased to say Iron Man was the hero of Avengers amongst the other heroes. He stood out since IM and then he stepped up and risked his life going through the portal in the end.

Yeah but Thanos complicates the verse wayyy too much. The reason American comics suffer from poor sales is because they suck at worldbuilding and introduce all kinds of ridiculous concepts and storylines which go on and on. That's why I supported Ultimate Marvel and why I support the DC New 52 (even though a lot of those stories are poor)
I don't want a character who ***** up the comic verse ******* up the movie verse. Like is Mistress Death supposed to be in the movie too?

Let me clarify...I'd prefer the evil killer robot than the evil alien from Saturn.
I'm sure movie Thanos won't disappoint though
Eh not really seeing this criticism as any good
Thanos is great. Every Starlin written Thanos story is great. All the concepts are grounded on theories and philosophies easy for anybody to understand. Not convoluted or complicated.
Plus technically Thanos has his roots on Earth given his parents are from there. I don't see how he ***** up the comics verse at all.
It's as simple as super powerful genius alien seeks ultimate power, gets it loses it, seeks more power gets it, battles most of the universe's heroes but ends up sabotaging himself and loses it, along the way he sees that there is no point in life and might as well wipe out all of it (becomes a nihilist) and falls in love with the personification of Death.

That's a thing.
Even though he dropped out but given his recent comments there might be a slim chance he sticks around for something.
I'd be down for Marvel tackling a comedy movie. The other ones were pretty bad anyway (the one with Uma Thurman, I think it was Epic movie which is a parody flick that had that Dragonfly superhero). Only Hancock balanced comedy and seriousness but even that wasn't that good.
Most ppl see Antman as a joke anyway.
