Iron Man was superior to everyone in an irritating way. now i want you to imagine that someone never heard of Spider-Man or Iron Man then watched both their movies. don't u think he will like Iron Man more. when this isn't even the case in the comics? they gotta keep it real, right?
I don't think there's any question of 'deserve'... It's more about what will work cinematically in terms of the characters, visuals, and actors...
In the case of Stark / IM, you have a few things that make an IM in a movie work out better than an IM comic:
1- Talented Actor with knack for cheeky, spontaneous delivery
2- Costume that is workable both as an actual costume, and as CGI for more effects - laden action scenes
3- Lack of required backstory (there's not a whole lot to Stark, IM, or their origin... EZ screenplay)
4- Easy to introduce and familiar concepts (IM is all about Technology... Something any idiot these days can relate to at least superficially, as opposed to interdimensional beings, supernatural bullshit, or far out scifi)
These things, IMO, make IM an easy and predictably entertaining MOVIE character, however the same qualities make him a shitty comic character. Look at other characters in the smae way and all these shitty comic movies make a lot more sense.
Movies and comics do not work by the smae principles in their respective crafts.
