But I don't get some of these complaints. How does the mili-second we see of Hawkeye make Thor a commercial for Avengers? How does Howard Stark, who we know was an ally scientist, knowing Captain America hurt the film? If anything, I think Stark contributed a lot. We needed an American scientist to be Zola's foil. If the character was Dr. Johnson, same lines and everything, nobody cares. But for some reason, because he has the Stark name, it is an issue...I just don't see how it is. Besides, Stark and Rogers had an interesting relationship and the idea of who is the true "man of tomorrow" so to speak was a good arc for both.
