Batman, Spiderman and Superman have all managed to stay relatively relevant in pop culture for 50+ years. Iron Man became big outside of comic book fans in 2008 and again, it seems like its mostly due to the actor. If when someone else takes the mantel as Iron Man, he's just as popular or more popular than now, then we can start saying that. Right now, its not entirely clear if the GA is enamored by RDJ playing Iron Man, or enamored by Iron Man.
But....RDJ IS Iron Man.
