I prefer Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and the Avengers to any of Affleck's films.

Gone Baby Gone is magnificent though, and he has incredible talent and could easily match it again someday, imo.

RDJ came from much lower than Affleck did and came back in a much bigger way.

As an artist? Ben Affleck

As an entertainer? RDJ.

Ben Affleck was never really gone. He just had a period where everything he did was bad. But he was still working regularly.

I don't consider what Affleck's done to be a comeback. He was never really gone. He's just found something he's better at doing.

Downey was kinda popular in the late 80's and early 90's, but then he faded into obscurity and now he's more popular than ever before.

lol comparing BA to RDJ.

RdJ was in the gutter. His comeback is one of the greatest.

BA was just gone for awhile.

Ben Affleck came back from Gigli and some crap movies.
RDJ came back from one of the lowest pits of hell and triumphed.

I say Ben Affleck, because he might not have come back from as low as RDJ but he accomplished more.

I like RDJ, but what did he do? he hit rock bottom, fixed his act, and returned to doing what he did best, acting, and though his movies were successful and that is reason enough to be proud, Affleck could stop directing tomorrow and leave a stronger legacy.

Robert Downey Jr. was a drug-addicted mess whom was written off as a has-been actor too damaged by scandal to ever work in Hollywood again.

Ben Affleck made some bad movies and sort of went under the radar for a while as he worked on other things besides acting.

Robert Downey Jr. definitely made a much better comeback.
