    Your list is soooooooooooo different from mine. It is indeed a subjective thing.


Let's look at general reception then. Out of curiosity, I tried to get a measure of how all 22 of these movies were received by general consensus, both by moviegoers and critics, so I pulled the IMDB rating (1st number), the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer (2nd number), and the Rotten Tomatoes average rating (3rd number). The Tomatometer simply looks at the percentage of critics who liked the movie but that doesn't capture how passionately they liked or disliked the movie, which the average rating does. Finally, I calculated a fourth number, the average between IMDB rating and the average between the Tomatometer and average rating so as critics aren't more heavily weighted. So the fourth number provides a consensus reached between audiences and critics. Here is how the MCU and DCEU movies compare:

1. The Avengers (81, 92, 80, 83.50)
2. Guardians of the Galaxy (81, 91, 77, 82.50)
3. Iron Man (79, 94, 77, 82.25)
4. Thor: Ragnarok (80, 92, 75, 81.75)
5. Captain America: Civil War (78, 91, 77, 81.00)
6. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (78, 89, 76, 80.25)
7. Spider-Man: Homecoming (75, 92, 77, 79.75)
8. Wonder Woman (75, 92, 76, 79.50)
9. Doctor Strange (75, 90, 73, 78.25)
10. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (77, 82, 72, 77.00)
11. Ant-Man (73, 82, 68, 74.00)
12. Iron Man Three (72, 80, 70, 73.50)
13. Avengers: Age of Ultron (74, 75, 67, 72.50)
14. Captain America: The First Avenger (69, 80, 70, 72.00)
15. Thor (70, 77, 67, 71.00)
16. Iron Man 2 (70, 73, 65, 69.50)
17. Thor: The Dark World (70, 66, 62, 67.00)
18. The Incredible Hulk (68, 67, 62, 66.25)
19. Man of Steel (71, 55, 62, 64.75)
20. Justice League (69, 40, 53, 57.75)
21. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (66, 27, 49, 52.00)
22. Suicide Squad (61, 26, 48, 49.00)

Even surprising to me, 4 of the 5 DCEU movies rank at the very bottom with only WONDER WOMAN scoring high. At the moment, BLACK PANTHER has the highest Rotten Tomatoes rating in both Tomatometer and average rating of any movie on this list.
