Every story has to focus on one person, the protagonist. Sure you can also focus on the supporting characters of the story, even the villains, and the anti heroes. But one of the only problems in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that we don't know who the main character is, luckily I have elected 5 candidates to help us out. Sure they are all super heroes/villains and its hard to focus on them all at once, but this is a franchise and we only need one character that can volunteer as team captain that could be able to lead the all stars, I know it sounds corny but when you think about it, it's true! So without further ado, lets get started with our first candidate

Candidate #1: Tony Stark/Iron Man

The Avengers (2012)
The Avengers (2012)

Reason why I chose him as a candidate: Think about it, the first movie he starred in was the first movie that kicked off the MCU! Also he was in the most marvel films so far, and he's going to be in the 3rd Captain America movie! So that's it for Iron Man! And yes, "The Incredible Hulk (2008)" does count on the list.

Candidate #2: Steve Rogers/Captain America

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Reason why I chose him as a candidate: He is the legendary leader of the avengers, and fought in many battles during WWII! Captain America is one of the most bravest, yet awesome role model any kid would ask for. Not bad for a guy who has been frozen for almost 70 years.


Candidate #3: Peter Quill/ Star-Lord

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Reason why I chose him as a candidate: Every character can have his/her underdog moment, and clearly Star-Lord is that underdog. He's even a bit powerful enough to wield one of the infinity gems thanks to the fact that he has alien blood in his body...and the fact that his friends helped him out. And because of that fact, I believe he is the one to take on the mad titan himself! Sorry Drax, you're still cool by the way.

Candidate #4: Nick Fury

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Reason why I chose him as a candidate: I know what you're thinking, "This makes so much sense!" I chose him because he is the one who assembled the avengers to protect the world from harms way, and he is the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. for crying out loud! Give the guy with the eye patch some credit!

Candidate #5: Thanos

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Reason why I chose him as a candidate: Who doesn't love a good anti-hero, am I right? Now this is the twist right here folks. The Infinity Gauntlet story line has been planned since Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark's house, and there is only one person that ties into all of this, and that is the mad titan himself!
