The Era of Comic Book Movies

    It seems Hollywood has finally realized that comics, like novels, can be a great source for movies.
        However, for every great film like "Spiderman 2", "The Dark Knight" and "Iron Man", there've been a lot of clunkers, like "Daredevil", "Ghost Rider" and "Catwoman".  I'm a huge fan of the Fantastic Four, and seeing the characters in two agonizingly bad films really left a bad taste in my mouth.
        "The Spirit" and "Watchmen" will be coming out in the next few months, continuing the trend of graphic novels leaping to the screen.   
        What comic films have you enjoyed so far?  And which characters would you like to be featured in the future?
        My favorites are:

        1.  Superman (the 1979 film)
        2.  Spider-Man
        3.  Spider-Man 2
        4.  Iron Man
        5.  Superman 2 (the 1981 film)
        6.  The Dark Knight
        7.  American Splendor
        8.  Ghost World
