They "don't get" that the reason why some characters are so popular is because they are NOT THE LEADER or are in a POSITION OF AUTHORITY. People liked Wolverine because he was the loose cannon rebel who often opposed the leaders of the X-Men (Prof X and Cyclops). Just because a character is insanely popular doesn't mean that said character should be made leader of a team SOLELY because of said character's popularity.

Iron Man is the most popular character out of any of the movie Avengers characters. It's no secret. Robert Downey Jr. is the biggest star and he got the heaviest marketing and promotion for Avengers. In Earth's Mightiest Heroes he was the leader for most of the show. And this was a show all the hardcore nerds claim to love desperately.
He was the first/original leader of the team in the comics. So him being made team leader was fine. Iron Man can lead a team, Wolverine cannot (and should not). That being said, he was only made the team leader in AA solely because of his popularity, which is unnecessary and pointless since he was not the team leader or main focus in the AVENGERS movie (Wheedon has gone on record as saying this movie was mainly about Cap). Kids don't care if IM is the leader as long as he is in the show (the same goes for Wolverine).

Also didn't all the haters say Ultimate Spider-Man was going to be done and gone after 52 episodes? Season three is already in production.
Which has absolutely nothing to do with what we were just discussing.
