The Superhero Yin and Yang. 10 ways The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises can't be better than each other.

Huh, I thought that clean energy was an interesting point for the author to raise that didn't really hit me, even if the nuke similarities did.

While I think they were comparing the cosmic cube to the weird generator thingie-- I thought the whole reason the battle took place in New York was since Stark's tower was somehow a clean independent energy source, possibly using a scaled version of that arc thing in his heart. So even more directly, both movies' billionaire playboy philanthropists had their effort to make the world better appropriated by others
Pretty bad article comparing the most general similarities between the two films (similarities that could be done with just about any other films as well using the criteria they did).

I once did that to show how similar Avatar was to District 9 (both were movies about a man who is sent to evict the local alien population, and in the process ends up becoming an alien and sympathizing with them, and the movie ends with a climactic battle involving people in mech suits, etc.)
