I honestly think The Incredible Hulk is ironically the weakest.

Dark World may be the best Thor. Stakes are high and Thor isn't a chump. He brings it to Malekith hard core at the end. And the way his hammer was chasing him through dimensions, we've never seen anything like that before.
Adult Swim handled this correctly.

Xerxes in regards to Dan Harmon NOT being fired when his baby raping parody video was exposed.

I think the biggest flaw of IM2 is the deus ex machina of his dad having a hidden message for the exact thing he needs at the exact time he needs it. It's like the secret subway lair of Pete's father in the Amazing Spider-Man movies just not as blatant.

Exactly - it has no emotional arc for Tony. Its the Marvel movie that was most damaged by the need to make sure that people went to see the next film. Thats something Marvel doesnt seem to do anymore but at the time IM/Stark was their only surefire thing and they yielded to the temptation to make sure you knew The Avengers were coming.

It was like they were going for more of a "Demon In a Bottle" thing but chickened out and instead they just made Tony more unlikable for half the film. And, as you point out, the basic dilemma is resolved not by Tony's effort/brains/sacrifice but because Fury/Stark Senior hand over the solution. Even then they manage to kill the momentum of the film by stopping everything for 15 minutes while Tony drives to see Pepper in a nice bit of Audi product placement for a very forgettable conversation before grabbing the Stark Expo diorama.

Iron Man 2 drags a bit in the middle, but it’s good overall.
9 outta 10 Masters are Master.
