The Compromised Ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Download

The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse is back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast about exploring the culture created by comic books. This week Robbie and Ben exchange blows and put their partnership at risk. They take all 23 canon movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and attempt a ranking of them from worst to best.

From the first Iron Man and the forgotten Hulk movie, up through Captain America: Civil War (aka Avengers 2.5) and onwards to the Endgame. The Marvel Cinematic Universe boosts 23 movies of varying quality. While there may be stinker or two among them, they are for the most part an assortment of great superhero flicks. Robbie and Ben attempt to come together as one cohesive unit and rank them definitively. Spoilers: that doesn’t happen, compromises must be made and they’re made as soon as the 22nd entry.

Warning: this episode of The Other Identity will anger you. You will seethe with rage, you will shout at no one in particular and likely stomp off to social media to tell us how wrong we are. Good. Do it. Listen to this compromised version of the rankings and know that no matter how you think Avengers: Age of Ultron should be…it’s not high enough. Know that Ben did Doctor Strange a great injustice. Know, good listener, that the perfect rankings of these movies do not exist, but this is probably as close as anyone will ever get.
