Spider Man Homecoming Iron Man

Spider-Man: Homecoming was Spider-Man’s big break into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thanks to a deal between Sony and Marvel Studios. And it was milked as much as possible.

Not only did Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark play a pivotal role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, acting as a reluctant mentor to Tom Holland‘s teen Peter Parker. It was a clear-cut continuation of their relationship from Captain America: Civil War, in which Tony plucked Tom out of obscurity and a pajama costume to fight in the big leagues against Team Captain America. But Tony almost wasn’t the only Avenger to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

All the Marvel Big Bads, Ranked By Badness

I totally get that you don’t want to read an introduction about how there’s a new (great) Marvel Cinematic Universe villain because of Spider-Man: Homecoming. You’re skipping this to get right to the list so you can get right to the comments section. No sweat. You’ve earned it.

If you’re still reading, there are two things to keep in mind regarding this particularly ranking of Marvel’s bad guys. One, I’m judging them all based on Personality and Plan Points. How magnetic are they? How stupid is their plan for world domination (or whatever else they’re seeking)?

Two, Thanos isn’t on it because he doesn’t count. He’s not a villain; he’s a Postmates customer with the munchies. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to Infinity War when he can legitimately join this list.

spider-man in iron man 2

Back in 2010, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was still an ambitious experiment somehow surviving the dire Iron Man 2 and Spider-Man was caught in a limbo between Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man. Despite their shared origins, these two franchises were never going to intersect. Sony owned Spidey and Marvel Studios was its own thing. The deal that would bring both companies together was still years, and a few poorly received Spider-Man movies, away.

That didn’t stop fans from fantasizing, though. Surely Spider-Man was somewhere to be found in the burgeoning MCU. One fan theory even suggested that a young Peter Parker showed up in the climax of Iron Man 2. And now, with Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man now a full-fledged member of the MCU, that theory has been confirmed! With a caveat.
