I will accept that he watched the movie and wants Coulson to live. I will not accept, based solely on those examples, that he is a nerd.
Answering the three most obvious superheroes in the movie does not make him a nerd. My best friend’s two-year old can name Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man. If he had said Black Widow, Hawkeye, or Thor? Then I’d be closer to accepting it. I want this man to answer the question of the original heroes to make up the Avengers; and if he says Captain America as one of them, he fails. Just saying. Captain is an honorary founding member, not an actual founding member.
Just ranting about two things at once, don’t mind me.
