And those three, plus the Hulk, really are Marvel's biggest properties until such time they regain control of the X-Men and Spider-Man. Which isn't likely to happen any time soon, if ever.
I guess I cant argue with that. I pretty much knew Iron man was gonna do well before the movie was released and Thor also looked like it was going to pull some bucks too.
