Since the 1960s, Marvel”s caped crusaders of the likes of Ironman, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye amongst others have thoroughly captivated the imagination of the young and the young at heart with their superpowers. Questions abounded as to who would win? Iron Man or Einstein, The Hulk, Captain America or Thor? Can Einstein turn Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr for some) into Iron Man?
