Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Favorite Iron Man Movie Moment

Posted by k4tzm4n (40612 posts) - - Show Bio

Robert Downey Jr. oozes charisma and manages to steal the spotlight in virtually every scene he's in. With such a strong personality and sharp remarks, Tony Stark has had a plethora of great moments during his time with Marvel Studios. But, which one did the Comic Vine community love the most? We narrowed it down to 15 standout scenes and asked you to pick your favorite. One barely inched ahead of the competition, earning 21% of the votes. Watch the winning scene below!

"We have a Hulk." Who out there honestly didn't get giddy like a super fan when they first heard that remark in the trailer? Sure, it's not hysterical banter, but it's a rare glimpse at how intimidating Stark can be when he's sporting a far more serious demeanor. Despite having a back up plan, he's still putting his life on the line and had no hesitation verbally owning the God of Mischief. This little speech was the perfect segue into a final act of pure fan service and bliss, too. As for me, I voted for the hostage rescue from Iron Man. Watching that scene for the first time was a ginormous "holy $#&*!!!" moment for me.

Check out the poll results below. If you're wondering why there are no moments from Iron Man 3, it's because the movie isn't out in North America yet and putting those options on the poll would be far too spoilery.

  • Displaying the Jericho (IM1) 2%
  • Escaping in his first armor (IM1) 3%
  • Disastrous yet hilarious testing of gear (IM1) 11%
  • First flight (IM1) 2%
  • Hostage Rescue (IM1) 7%
  • Tank kill (IM1) 5%
  • "I am Iron Man" (IM1) 6%
  • Tony in the Senate (IM2) 2%
  • Tony w/ suitcase armor vs. Whiplash (IM2) 5%
  • Drunk Iron Man vs. War Machine (IM2) 5%
  • Iron Man's laser vs. Drones (IM2) 1%
  • Iron Man vs. Thor (The Avengers) 20%
  • Tony's argument with Cap (The Avengers) 2%
  • Tony threatens Loki (The Avengers) 21%
  • Iron Man vs Chitauri / nuke scene (The Avengers) 9%

Was this the Stark scene you adore the most or did a different option earn your vote? Don't forget to check the homepage Tuesday for the next Comic Book Question of the Week. As always, you're more than welcome to make suggestions for the next question!

YAY! My scene won! YAHOO! To be honest though the moment that I wanted to win wasn't even a option. The Icing Problem section was classic...Well any who, glad this won it deserved it.

What? That scene wasn't that great, funny but thats all... Thor vs Iron Man was awesome!

#3 Posted by GodOfMischief (641 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted the laser versus the drones, that was just badass. Well the whole scene with War Machine included made it even better.

I voted for the hostage scene, that was so awesome. But this scene is cool too.

#5 Posted by Lvenger (19293 posts) - - Show Bio

Training sequences are usually funny. But so was this scene.

#6 Posted by Extremis (3344 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, suitcase armor only 5%??

Iron Man's laser vs Drones 1%!!?

You can tell this was voted with the mindset of best [Marvel fanboy] moment in mind, hence why we get the highest results for "Best Iron Man Movie Moment" with Tony talking about the Hulk. Pfft. It's a great scene and all (and definitely a great Avengers moment) but sorry it's no where near the best Iron Man moment.

I voted for the Iron man vs Chitauri scene. Granted it starred the rest of the Avengers but it was awesome. I had a major nerdgasim the first time I saw it.

The best Iron Man scene is when the Chitauri begin to descend and he goes into battle mode and flies up to take them all on. That's what Iron man (and War Machine for that matter) should do in films, actually fight. Shane Black knows his comedy but does not know how to use Iron Man. Funnily enough, I think Iron Man is best in the Avengers.

Avengers was too good to include in the vote. If I had actually voted and stuck to the Iron Man movies it would be the OG armor escape. Seeing that in the trailer was enough to push me to see the movie upon release.

RDJ was amazing in this scene. When his Tony is serious and not making jokes its amazing.

The Thor vs Iron Man was my favorite Thor movie scene...because it showed how much more powerful Thor was.

I think it's more about Tony standing up to a "god" without the armor.

Hostage Rescue deserved more votes.

CAN'T WAIT!!!

How is it that the "I am Iron Man" scene did not get more votes? (Didn't expect it to win but c'mon!)

Any of the scenes in I.M. or I.M. 2, because I appreciate them tenfold after the piece of utter trash that was I.M. 3.

Did you vote? And if so, for which one?

My favorite scene is when he is building the Mark II and trouble shooting the flight system. The subsequent battle in Gamora is great as well.

Glad to see that scene won!

I totally agree with you. I got goosebumps when he charged head first into them with no backup.

Finally a thing I voted for won! Seriously, was there any doubt though? This was one of Tony's most iconic moments, hands down!

#23 Posted by novi_homines (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

This scene was pretty awesome too!!! Wasn't on the list.

It's basically this one:

  • Iron Man's laser vs. Drones (IM2) 1%

For me it would have to be his escape in his first armor in the first Iron Man, it was both cool (from an action standpoint) and emotional especially when Yensin died sacrificing his life so Tony could escape and it was at that moment Tony realized his purpose.

A very close second would be the hostage rescue from Iron Man 1 only if it also includes his dog fight with the F-22 Raptors.

The lazer vs drones was great, but it made the final battle with them short and dissapointing much like the final Whiplash battle.
