Another reason I think Iron Man is more superior to the other superhero movies is the origin of Iron Man.
It was unlike any other superhero film before it in that it wasn't campy or comic bookish like some of the early batman films or even the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man franchise, and yet it was still truer to its comic book roots than other films at that time that went for a realistic feeling like the X-men and Nolan Batman films.
Not only did it prove to be a big film for the character of Iron Man, but I think it was a big film for Marvel and comic book movies at large.
