Robot Arm's First Law of Comic Book Movies: When casting the lead role in a movie based on a comic book, get an actor who can be convincing as the alter ego. Christoper Reeve was good as Clark Kent. Tobey Maguire was good as Peter Parker. Robert Downey Jr. was good as Tony Stark. Anybody can put on a superhero suit.

Robot Arm's Law of the Emasculated Sci-Fi Badass: The more menacing and memorable the villain in a science-fiction movie, the greater the chance that he will become a good guy in the sequel(s).
