    What is the best character transformation from comic book to screen?

    Which Superhero do you think has made the best transformation from their home on the page to the film screen? Do Marvel or DC heroes look better? Which characters have the best stories to tell?

    That's more than one question. It depends on what you mean by best, to me... the best are the ones that successfully transfer the spirit of the character from stage to screen. So for me, The first Superman movie and the first Spider-Man movie are tied, although Iron Man comes in a close second.

    I don't think that either Marvel or DC characters look better than each other on the screen or in the comics. There are characters that look better than other characters but I don't see that the publisher makes a difference in that.

    I won't even try to answer which character has the best story to tell. If they didn't have good stories to tell they wouldn't have been published and put on radio, TV and movies for as much as seventy years.

    I always thought that the Captain America story was a great one.  The movie was good, but not great.  The best so far would be the recent Batman movies with Christian Bale, Iron Man, and Wolverine from the X-Men movies.  I am not necessarily saying those are the best of the comic book hero movies, but those three characters made the best transition from page to screen.

    Wolverine, one of the well-known fictional characters in Marvel Comics is well-defined on screen, portrayed immaculately by Hugh Jackman. His dynamic presence and vigour was well-captured and nicely transformed from the comics to the screen. The Marvel comics- writing and artist board helped in popularising the character of Wolverine which was brought into effect on the screen, due to Hugh Jackman's effervescent performance in this role in the hit X-men film series.

    It really depends on what you mean.  Are you asking which movies stay the most accurate to the comic books, while still presenting a solid story to follow?  If that's the case, then I'd probably cast my vote for either Captain America or Iron Man.  However, if we're just judging the films on their own content, then I think x-men first class was good, and nolan's batman movies are great.

    I thought 300 was remarkably close to the original book.

    Christopher Reeve as a Superman will always have a spot in my heart. Hulk wasn't too bad on the big screen, either, but Bale as Batman was ferocious.
