Jdell...Man-Thing was made for TV so it was not included.  Howard the Duck was terrible but I don't classify Howard as a Hero.

 

Yes Superman Returns was horrible but Superman 4 is hands down, the worst Superman Movie....not even close IMHO

WHAT Popeye was the best.  It was the first movie I ever went to see.  I cant believe its on this list. 

Heck Electra should have made that list before Daredevil and Judge Dred?  Come on ... GUILTY AS CHARGED.   lol

Batman& Robin should have been the #1. Superman 4 i atleast enjoyed watching when it came out. But Batman & Robin is just SOOOO bad for every reason. Makes me angry just thinking about it.

And I agree Daredevil is not a bad movie at all.

Tim,

Man-thing was not made for TV , in fact it was rated R (though i think it went straight to video: mhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290747/ ). and yeah, i guess Howard doesnt count as a superhero movie. I would have put Steel and Barbwire closer to the top of the craplist too.....but we do agree on Superman IV (though i think Supes III was right behind it) as THE WORST!

Tim the director's cut of Daredevil is pretty dang good man, I mean yeah we still have to deal with Affleck, but it is a way better movie than you claim at least good enough to be in the teens on this list. Batman (1966) does not even need to be here, it is a good movie for what it was intended to be, plus you are basing your critique of the film based on the modern version of Batman which is not right. The Batman of the 60s is accurately represented in the movie, so it does not belong here. You want to talk about worst comic movies you have to start counting after 1977 because that is when the modern age of comic movies began with Superman although it wasn't until 1989 with the sucess of the first Burton Batman that the genre really took off. So with that criteria in place the 1966 Batman cannot be counted. Plus man where is Ang Lee's Hulk? That was a steaming pile of crap if there ever was one. Popeye should not be on this list, I agree it is not that great (it's really boring), but Popeye is not a superhero. Cartoon characters and Superheros are not the same. Judge Dredd is also not as bad as you claim it is. It is not that great either, but it is better than you claim. I also agree with some of the guys that Superman Returns sucked more than Superman IV oh yeah and Superman III sucked way more than IV. Batman and Robin should have been number 1 because of the magnitude of the stinker that it was.

Dude wtf....seriously.. how is Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Starring David Hasselhoff) not on this list? 

sportwarrior 12/11/2008 10:16:14 AM

I'm sorry, but Ghost Rider is not only one of the worst comic movies I've ever seen, but one of the worst movies, period.  I cannot believe how bad that movie was.  Half the movies on this list were better than it was.  How it only got an honorable mention I'm not sure.  Did the author consult with anyone about this list?  Or did he just make it unilaterally?

Jdell....my recollection is that Man-thing premiered on Sci-fi but perhaps it was direct to video first.  However, i would not have included it for the same thing I didn't include Return of Swamp Thing and Howard the Duck, it's not technically super hero in nature.

Fallensbane...Nick Fury was a TV movie so it was not included.  Although it would have definitely made the list.

 

KWSupes...I did mention that the Director's Cut of Daredevil was much better.

Okay,

Popeye doesn't deserve to be on this list.

Batman (1960) was what it was supposed to be. It was the TV show on screen for fans of the TV Show.  There wasn't supposed be anything else other that that.

Ghost Rider (?) I'm on the fence with this one.....it wasn't as bad, but it had some entertaining moments.

Daredevil - The Director's Cut was better. I think that this one has earned a redeux. Still the original isn't as bad as it could've been. Electra wasn't bad either. The story could've been better, and I think that the studios were cashing in on Ben and Jen.

Captain America - This one I have to sat AT THE TIME was not so bad, after all. I was a kid when that one came out and was stoked just because it was another superhero other than the ones that had been ran through the ground.

The Punisher - Dolph Lundgren hasn't made anything revelvant since Rocky. Remember the movie I Come In Peace? Horrible.

Superman the Quest For Peace absolutely is number one....that movie is the one that killed the Superman franchise, and it's currently on life support with Superman Returns, so yes, it's number one status lives on.

...and even though I own it, Blade Trintiy does deserve to be on the list...it totally wrecked the series and definitely needs a 4th in order to set things right.

I'm surprised that Spider Man 3 didn't make the list. Who the hell thought it was cool to have everyone crying at the end of a superhero movie? 

Steel? I don't think anything needs to be said about that....other than don't do it again.

Speaking made for TV movies,

Remember Dr Strange? My, how far we have come.

Re MAN-THING - "Made for TV" is a bit of a misnomer. There was a time in the movie's development where it was definitely thought of as a  theatrical movie. They were making it for theaters just as surely as they made "Punisher War Zone" for theaters. Then Brett Leonard threw out a big chunk of the fine script they had and turned the movie into incoherent and cliched mud-pie. At that point the only place they could release it was Direct to Video and SCI FI Channel. The TV airing came first. The DVD second. It was never released in theaters (at least not in the U.S.)
