Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe Character

Who did the community vote as their favorite character from the Marvel Studios universe? Spoiler alert: it's not Trevor Slattery.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, it introduces more and more characters for us to fall in love with or it further cements our appreciation for a specific individual. This week, we wanted to know which cinematic hero (or villain) the Comic Vine community supports the most. Was it the charismatic Iron Man? The mischievous Loki? The goofy Trevor Slattery? No, no and most definitely no. It was absolutely a close race between a handful of people, but in the end, Marvel's super-soldier is taking home the #1 spot.

Honestly, who saw that coming? When the poll kicked off, two key characters took the lead: Iron Man and Loki. It seemed certain one of them would win and Chris Evans would just earn a respectable percentage. But votes for Captain America grew and grew and eventually, the First Avenger triumphed.

Here's the poll results. Keep in mind, 0% does not mean a character received zero votes. So many people voted that only a handful of votes for a certain option may not add up to 1%. In fact, the ONLY character to receive no love was Whiplash. Sorry, Mickey Rourke.

Did you vote for Captain America and if so, why'd Evans earn your vote? If not, who deserved your support and why? To celebrate Cap's victory, don't forget to watch the teaser trailer for Captain America: The WInter Soldier a gazillion times or so.

Check the homepage next Tuesday for an all-new Question of the Week! Do you have a suggestion for a topical or superb question for the feature? Post it below it tell Gregg via Twitter.

As someone who doesn't have a favorite I'm kinda surprised that Cap beat Iron Man.

Cap has always been my favorite Marvel hero (Miles and Nick Fury are up there as well). Good to see him pull off a win.

Posted by reaperOnyx

I really liked Captain America and I'm also surprised he beat iron man, but hey, he deserved it.

Posted by AllStarSuperman

I wanted Cap to win, did not expect him to though.

Posted by stevencarver_

Yeah, I voted for Captain America. I fell like The First Avenger was the strongest of Phase One because Chris Evans just took over the character so well. I walked out of the theater that night having found my favorite superhero and an irresistible desire to read comic books. It was the movie that got me into comics.

I voted for Coulson because, despite Agents of SHIELD being "meh" at best, I really enjoy his character. I expected Loki or Iron Man to take this one. I didn't realize so many people preferred Cap. I really can't pick a favorite though (Coulson is really my number 2 man behind Cap, Iron Man, and Loki all tied at the top. I just thought he deserved some love too.)

The question is, did people vote for movie Cap, or COMIC Cap?

I'm well aware of that (not sure if you realized, but I was the one who wrote the piece about Marvel bringing DD and others to Netflix..), but the fact remains he has yet to become a part of the shared cinematic universe. You can't vote for a character if you haven't even seen what the studio will do with them. This isn't complex -- this is a poll of the Marvel Studios characters we've already seen on the big screen.

I agree with the result

Edited by Smart_Dork_Dude

OH YEAH!!! CAP FTW!!!!

Posted by MuyJingo

I can't believe Cap won. He's such a goon on screen. Corny as hell.

I still like Skye the best from the TV show. Hulk is interesting when he is green, which is a minimum, and Loki is fun....the rest...meh.

Oh,yeah,you did it.....now i feel silly.

I am surprised that Cap won,and not "Robert Downey Junior-Man"......well,it seems that we have more comic-book fans than after '2008 Iron-Man' fans here... (mwahaha!)

Posted by Wilbertus

I am surprised Cap won. Maybe the recently released trailer helped to push him over the edge? Or maybe Iron Man 3 created some resentment from the Iron Man fans. Personally, I thought Cap was great in the Avengers but I thought The First Avenger was horrible.

We are talking about the Cinematic Universe, not the comics. Therefore I personally had to give it to Tony Stark. But only because the X-men didn't make it to the list...

I think I liked Thor more than Cap.

Edited by tximinoman

I'm surprised but it kind of make sense; Cap's movie was one of the best movies Marvel has ever done and he was awesome in Avengers (way better than Iron Man who was a bit of a douche in that movie). Also, a lot of people didn't liked IM3 (I'm not one of them, I love Trevor Slattery) and Winter Soldier's trailer looks awesome.

Posted by sasquatch888

there's so many great heroes and villans its hard to choose

Posted by Mrgreenlantern

loki commands every scene hes in...I cant believe he didnt win this

Posted by superior_prime_maybe

Wow! This is a pleasant surprise!
I was kinda sure it would be Iron man or hulk. Maybe Loki.
But im really glad it was cap. I hope avengers 2 takes this in account. Make him do more than jump around

Posted by butters911

Im surprised BW didn't get more love. She had some of the best scenes in the Avengers and IM2.

Posted by Ninjablade09

I'm extremely surprised Cap beat both Loki and RDJ-man. I'm glad I voted for Cap.

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

How did Agent Coulson beat out Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Fury? That's just messed up.

Edited by ThomasElliot

I'm not much of a Thor comic fan (though I have mucho appreciation for the Kirby art), he's actually my favorite in the films, I voted for him... though I do wish they had done the handicapped alter-ego. The story is about a 'god' who becomes humbled... being a handi-cappable human couldn't have been more humbling. Even if its just A story and not part of his ongoing character. Instead, his humbling punishment was to a be a model-esque, women wetting their panties 'mere' mortal.

It reminds me of a really, really old SNL skit where Dolly Parton was an alien from a planet where everyone's boobs were bigger than hers, and her punishment was to be sent to Earth where her 'diminutive' assets would be 'ridiculed'.

But Captain A wins the poll... I'm good with that. I like RDJ... but I'm almost getting weary of his Stark character after IM3. Hawkeye and BW don't really have much character, but then again, its not like they have their own films where they can be developed.

Edited by funckygarcon

how did Cap win over Iron man? I'm not saying he was lame or anything, but Robert Downey J.R just owns the role of both Tony Stark/Iron Man.

Posted by SHAZAM117

RDJ's Stark/Iron Man is my personal fav by a slim margin over Thor......

This could change tho depending after I see The Winter Soldier, cause Cap looks like a F'n boss in his new movie

Posted by blackcobalt

I had to double check that this was about MCU versions of characters. I like movie Cap. He's what a Captain America characterization should be.

Edited by vandinejd_1991

Captain America is just my favorite character in general whether it be in the comics or the movies. Any poll with him in it I would vote for him unless the question did not call for it.

Posted by IronAngelX

This is such a flimsy question, if you would have asked this question a few months ago, people would have said Iron Man, but now that the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer is out, then there is a sudden change of interest.

Edited by darkseid1006

I went for Loki personally he seemed a lot more fun close second was IronMan I loved that movie first was faverout then third and second

Edited by War Killer
HECK YEAH!!!

Edited by Fallschirmjager

I'm fine with it. Though RDJ's Ironman is a superior portrayal in my opinion.

Taking a character with unlikable personality traits and making them likable and charming is something not many people will be able to replicate.

Posted by longbowhunter

I was so sure Iron Man or Loki would win this I didn't even bother voting.

Posted by Black_Arrow

Hell yeah Captain America the best of that universe.

can someone please explain to me how captain america is favored over.....

Edited by Omega Ray Jay

Well I wouldn't have called that, well done Cap.

Posted by Wardemon32

@cgoodness:

Because we look at character and not looks.. or how we're not sexist?

Posted by AmazingWebHead

Well, retiring for no reason whatsoever (other than being p*$$%-whipped) can't get you that many points.

Edited by LordRequiem

Thor should have won easily because the actor and character fit so perfectly. War Machine would have gotten more votes if he had more screen time in his armour.

Posted by PunyParker

HECK YEAH!!!

You're enjoying it,aren't you?! :P
