Superheroes have it easy: We only expect them to save the planet every now and again. Superhero movies, though, have the daunting task of illuminating our souls.

Dazzling effects, strong stories and bold heroes mean bubkes unless they inspire us. Thank the gods, The Avengers is just what it ought to be – inspired.

After five recent films about the solo exploits of Marvel heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, outclassing Edward Norton), The Avengers weaves its narrative threads into a vibrant display of effects wizardry with characters to love and wit to spare.

In real-life, Robert Downey Jr. doesn't possess superhuman strength, genius intellect or that famed power suit.

But Iron Man, his on-screen Avengers alter-ego gifted with his body, brains and superhero wardrobe, isn't lacking – and fans of the franchise agree.

According to data collected on the movie's Facebook page, 37 percent of fans polled would most like to be Iron Man (identity: Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark) if they could transform into any Marvel superhero.

Chris Evans isn't looking for a woman who always agrees with him.

The upcoming Avengers star, 30, says he'd much rather date someone who occasionally pushes his buttons.

"I like ... girls who give me a hard time [and] bust my chops a little," Evans tells Details magazine in their latest cover story.

"I like girls who aren't so la-di-da. L.A. is so la-di-da."

All eyes are on Captain America.

But Chris Evans, who stars as the titular superhero in the upcoming action flick, was focused on one lady in particular Tuesday night at Trousdale Lounge in L.A.: Twilight star Ashley Greene

"They were flirtatious and dancing closely together at points during the night," an onlooker tells PEOPLE of the two. "They were talking a lot and whispering."

Adds another clubgoer: "He was making her laugh, and she would push him in a flirty way." The two spent the night hanging out at tables with a large group and enjoying tunes spun by DJ Devin Lucien.

And while Greene, 24, is newly single – having recently spent time with rocker Jared Followill in New York City after splitting from Joe Jonas – she and Evans are not an item.

POLL: Who Should Play He-Man in the New Movie?

Who Should Play He-Man in the New Movie?

Originally posted 04/16/2010 08:00AM

WANTED: The most powerful man in the universe. Should be muscular. Blond hair a plus. Needs to be skilled in the Secrets of Grayskull and immune to evil forces of Skeletor. Long hours, good pay. Some near-nudity required.

That, at least, is how one might imagine the casting call for the role of He-Man in the upcoming Masters of the Universe movie, based on the successful Mattel toy line – launched in 1982 – and already the inspiration for the 1987 feature Masters of the Universe, which starred a muscular, blond and nearly naked Dolph Lundgren as Eternia's greatest warrior and Skeletor's archenemy.

The proposed 2011 version is to be directed by John Stevenson, who co-directed Kung-Fu Panda and whose credits also include the Shrek movies. But still up for grabs: the leading role of He-Man.

This is where you come in. Imagine yourself the casting director, in search of the ultimate action hero. From these four box-office-worthy hunks, whom would you pick to fill He-Man's furry briefs?
