Comic book movies are a lot like people, one is born every four seconds and many of them are really awful. Whether you read comic books, watched the cartoons, the TV shows, or just overheard some kids at the front of the class/bus discussing their favorites, everyone knows comic books and their characters, especially the really big ones. A good portion of the Superman, Batman, Spiderman and the 14 thousand other Marvel movies have been excellent films, some serious, some campy, but they work. We will remember these even as they age and start to look silly, if they haven’t already.
But what about the ones we tried to forget? The films that made us rethink our love for certain heroes, or the films that did more to tarnish the image of a superhero than any villain could ever hope for. Why not discuss these more? Well, that’s what I’m here for, to dredge up painful memories and discuss how bad a movie or a character was ruined. They say no publicity is bad publicity, so I’m actually doing a service for the filmmakers. Maybe I’m a hero. Yeah. I like that. Let’s go with it.
14 Batman & Robin
13 Green Lantern
12 The Punisher
11 Blade: Trinity
10 Jonah Hex
9 The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
8 Howard the Duck
7 Barb Wire
6 Elektra (and Daredevil)
5 Superman IV
3 Fantastic Four
You better just slow your role, Supergirl. It’s a struggle discussing something that is beyond words, something so foul, it cannot be described in the English language. Thought of as the worst comic book movie ever made, Supergirl also lost a large amount of money, over $20 million USD if you’re counting. I feel sadness when I watch it. Its special effects and acting make you hurt inside. I try to reassure myself by thinking, “well, at least they’re trying their best out there.” It’s not pretty. It’s a trainwreck. That is all.
