#7- THE AVENGERS INITIATIVE – (IRON MAN) 2008

Samuel L. Jackson in The Avengers (2012) Movie Image

The moment in which every single comic fan collectively gasped with glee! This post credits scene was what started it all. Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson (who was the basis for the Ultimates version of the character) shows up in Tony’s pad and lets him know that he’s not alone. Shivers ran down my spine at the thought of the other legendary Marvel heroes that were waiting to be introduced.

    another list???? i hope this site doesnt turn into another site that only does lists all the time…
    they can be kind of sophomoric, dont you think?

      Lists are fun man! Besides it’s not like there’s a whole lot of pressing entertainment news out there at the moment, AND it’s members that are doing these mostly.

      When I started putting the list together I saw how many moments there were from The Avengers. It kinda mad me want to do a list of just Avengers moments. Sorry X_p
      LOL.

        haha no worries man, i actually read it and its pretty good list. i would prob add a few more like that scene in avengers when tony lands and the robots remove his suit as hes walking, or that time when the helicarrier took off from the water or that time when you saw loki in full suit with helmet and you didnt die laughing…

    One moment that stayed with me was in “Thor” when Thor was on earth and he spotted his faithful hammer, Mjölnir in the storming rainy scene in the make shift research facility. He tries to lift the hammer from its resting place only to realize he isnt worthy. He looks up to the sky in anger screaming “why!?”to the heavens at his father. He then gives up, being arrested and carried away by s.h.i.e.l.d.

      That one was on my list but was cut. There are so many great scenes that listing all would be impossible. The scene in Avengers when Thor and Hulk are fighting on the hellicarrier and Hulk gets cracked in the face by Mjolnir in slow motion was incredible (pun intended!). In the same scene when hulk tries to lift Mjolnir but can’t was great too.

    Hulk in the Avengers had one great moment not mentioned. Hulk walking away from Loki and unttering “puny god”. Of course, there was also Capt. America giving out the team’s assignments. “and Hulk . . . Smash”.

  • Joe Gonzo

    You cant forget the scene of the Hulk beating the crap out of Loki….

    My two favorite moments are Hulk-based within THE AVENGERS. Cap assigns each member a task to defeat the cosmic army, and when he gets to the Hulk (whom, for the first time, Bruce Banner CHOSE to become), he says, “and Hulk”, pauses, Hulk spins toward him with visible anger (you’re gonna tell ME what to do?), and then Cap says, “smash”. Hulk smiles.
    The other is when Loki berates Hulk on top of the Stark Tower. Loki demands that Hulk treat him as a God, and Hulk simply grabs Loki by the ankles and smashes him over and over into the concrete. He drops Loki and walks away, saying “puny God”. And then, to put a button on the moment, we hear a small, pitiful squeak from Loki.
    Great, crowd-pleasing moments in the Marvel Universe.
