MCU: 8 Hilariously Underrated Comedic Moments

8. Boom, You Looking For This? (Avengers: Age Of Ultron)

Marvel Studios

The Avengers, having been established as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, need some time to rest and recoup. However, not all Avengers were created equally, such as when James Rhodes tries his best to banter with partygoers, failing and succeeding in two different ways.

One of the more entertaining aspects of The Avengers sequel is without a doubt, the party scene. Before being attacked by the sentient Ultron, each member of the heroes are shown to be enjoying themselves, discussing the various events that have encapsulated their heroic lives as of late.

Rhodey, not to be outdone by his superhero cohorts, tells Tony Stark and Thor about a time when, as War Machine, he dropped a lost tank at the feet of a general. The lost look on Stark and Thor's face was funny, but as Rhodey attempted to retell it, he knew he was going nowhere. Even with Thor's encouragement at the rather short story, it was clear the warranted reaction wasn't going to happen.

Rhodey may have found the reaction he was looking for moments later, when he repeats the same story to a group of other attendees. The bursts of laughter that resulted, followed by Rhodey's clear satisfaction, was enough to also result in laughter from movie audiences everywhere.

Sometimes, the reactions we expect from friends from telling a joke or cool story may not be as expected as initially thought.
