Now, I've always liked a little superhero action. Superman over Batman. Batman over Spiderman. And the Avengers series never disappoints. But as I was watching yesterday I was intrigued by the display of specific heroic archetypes in the movie and tried to figure out which one appealed to me the most.
Tony Stark (played by the incredible Robert Downey Jnr)
Rich, powerful, arrogant....a little self obsessed (like most rich and powerful people no doubt) But a man who feels deeply and becomes undone and vulnerable by his feelings for Miss Pepper Potts.
Captain America.....sigh...(Played by the ridiculously attractive Chris Evans)
Honourable, reliable, generous and loaded with integrity. But, very black or white in his beliefs. He's a man stuck between the world he knew and the one he is in.
Bruce Banner (The Hulk) (Played by the uber sexy Mark Ruffalo)
Sigh...what is there to say about Bruce Banner. Genius, tortured and at war with the other side of himself. And, he is clearly falling for The Black Widow. I just love this scene in Age Of Ultron.
Thor (Played by the perfectly handsome Chris Hemsworth)
Well, Thor is another of those arrogant powerful men. But he's more grunt than genius. And of course he's desperately in love with Jane and will do anything to save his world, his family, and the woman he loves.
Of course, each hero has his merits. But I think I sway towards Bruce Banner.
Who's your pick?
