Best: The Winter Soldier reveal
Of course, we knew the Winter Solider was wearing a mask for some reason, whether it be to disguise a truly gruesome grill or to surprise us. It's the latter, of course, and the real surprise is for Captain America. The revelation as to the Winter Soldier's true identity sends our protagonist (and, to an extent) the plot into a spin. While there's a case to be made that keeping two genetically improved guys on ice for decades is two too many, it was a far better twist than the "I'm dead, no I'm not, gotcha!" Nick Fury was stuck with. Now, that silly battle on the fraying Helicarrier is another issue entirely, but before that point? Not too shabby.
