The 10 best "comic book" movies ever.

Updated on September 8, 2014

A twisted mind lurks in every story!


A hero rises.

One of many great scenes!

Great movies based on comic books!

These movies are not just for those who collected comics! Most movies fans that like action, or follow certain actors and actresses also flock to see these. Bright costumes, big stars, and one liners make this one of the most popular genres in movie history.

Those that I left out- The Watchmen-It was good but not outstanding.Sin City , The Green Lantern, The F4, Rise of the Silver Surfer, came close to making it.

The Daring Dozen. These movies brought some very strange and powerful heroes to life!

Starting with number 12, here they are!

12.Hellboy- I loved the character and Ron Pearlman, a small time character actor, rose to the occasion in his first leading role on the big screen. Selma Blair and others were great as well, in assisting this strange creature who loved Baby Ruths and cats, on his quest to fight an evil destiny.

11.The Crow - Brandon Lee lost his life in this film. He was an excellent avenger and this film was unique and ahead of its time!

10. The Incredible Hulk- Edward Norton, Tim Roth, and Liv Tyler were at their best when someone made Dr. Banner angry. They unleashed a most powerful beast, that could either destroy or save.

9. Spiderman- Peter Parker grows up, and swings up. Though the Green Goblin could have looked better, this was a modern day classic.

8. Blade- Trinity- I loved this one! One of the creepiest lines was given in this movie and it came from a tiny, little girl. Blade was the baddest thing on Earth! He had some of the vampires' power and none of their weaknesses...oh except for the thirst!

7. Ironman-Has he lost his mind? Thank God, for America's sake, no he has that, and his heart in the right place!

6. Xmen First Class- I loved everything about this one. Just when I thought nothing could come close to the original X-men, this did. We get to see Eric, Prof. X, beast and others when they were very young, and powerful.

The Fantastic 5!

5. Spiderman 2- Peter returns to battle Doc. Oc. and well, Spiderman too. This was well worth seeing who would win.

4. Superman 2- Christopher Reeves second appearance as the man of steel, pins him in a struggle against the evil General Zod,(Terrance Stamp), and of course himself.

3. Superman-The first time that Christopher Reeves played this role. Eventhough they went heavy on the Sci Fi in the beginning, I loved it and the cast was outstanding.

2. Xmen- Wolverine, and Rougue, against their will, join a group of fellow misfits to foil an evil plot. Predictable? Maybe, but this was so enjoyable! Many in this cast of characters were played to perfection!

Kick Ass! -Yes this is number 1. Thanks for reading

Got ya! I was only kidding. That was a fun movie, but here is the best of the best.

1.The Dark Knight- Argue with some of the other movies, but how can anyone say that this doesn't top them all? An Oscar and a plot that no one will forget. If you haven't seen this one then, stop being a clown and go to your bat cave for one of the best action movies ever!

      Though Electra, I thought was ok, some would have it on the worst list and some the best, believe it or not.The Fantastic 4 movies were awful until the silver surfer emerged.I'm not sure why but they couldn't nail it, even with great actors like Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, and Jessica Alba! Thanks for the input Shad!

      Well, I appreciate the input, but there were flaws with Superman, Ironman and Spiderman, that were not there with the Xmen and the Dark Knight. The DK kept you on the edge and 2 face was a clever twist. How can you dismiss the brilliance of the Xmen and the DK, when Superman was too lovey dovey to be #1 and it introduced Zod and his sidekicks in a weird way and then dismissed them with no explanation, Ironman dragged and was very promotional, and Spiderman had a villain that looked like something out of the Power Rangers? How you put any of those 3 above my top 2 is beyond me!

      I'd put "Superman: the Movie" first--the perfect super hero adaptation. Followed by the first "Spider-Man" film and "Iron Man". (Downy gave an amazing performance.)

      As for "Dark Knight", I think it's horribly over-rated. Heath Ledger was the best thing about it and he was amazing, but when he wasn't on the screen, the movie was nothing special. The plot was far too cluttered, with too many generic gangsters and extraneous subplots.

      And worse, they wasted a great villain--2 Face-by just shoe-horning him into the last 20 minutes of the film. The climax of the film should have been the confrontation with the Joker, and 2 Face should have been the main villain for the upcoming one (Instead of Bane.)The whole thing was far too hyped up, mostly because of the death of Ledger, who stole the show.

      I'm with you on this one, Mike. The Dark Knight was THE best. So good there is going to be a sequel: "The Dark Knight Rises" to be released in July 2012.
