30 Days of Marvel, Day 18: Favorite Comic to Screen Character Adaption

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Anyone who has seen either Iron Man movie or the Avengers who also reads comics knows exactly what I am talking about. He really sells the idea of Tony Stark in the early years of the character. The futurist ass hole with a heart of gold. Oh and it didn't hurt at all that they hired a former drug addict to play a character with a history of alcoholism. Talk about really relating to your character through real world experience. Inspired casting honestly. I just hope that Marvel can do a Civil War movie before Downey hangs up the mantle of ol' shellhead.
