#20: DON CHEADLE AS RHODEY/WAR MACHINE IN IRON MAN 2 (2010)

As Tony Stark’s righthand man, the humorless Air Force Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes, Don Cheadle is easy to overlook alongside the scenery-devouring Robert Downey, Jr. It’s not until Rhodes throws on his black (duh!) armor to become War Machine that his sidekick worth truly inflates. Together, WM and Iron Man take down Mickey Rourke’s metal-suited Ivan Vanko in a flurry of CGI demolition. Like us, you’re probably holding your breath for a War Machine spinoff movie. Make sure your girl knows the Heimlich Maneuver.
