The 10 Best Superhero Performances in Movies

Marvel Studios "Iron Man 3" Panel - Comic-Con International 2012

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man

When the first Iron Man hit theaters back in 2008, it pretty much redefined what the superhero could look like. The person saving the day didn’t need to be a haunted individual with a rigid moral code. No, instead, Tony Stark is a self-involved, sarcastic jerk, but we love him because of the charisma and honesty that Robert Downey Jr. brings to the role. Plus, the dude fights off terrorists in a sweet iron-armored suit. How could he not be a superhero?
