Ranking All Comic Book Superhero Movies

Over on TikTok, I’m counting down all comic book superhero movies, from worst to best.

By comic book superhero movies, I’m referring to movies that adapt comic book superheroes. In most cases, I’m only talking about superheroes who debuted in comic books, but I am including characters such as the Shadow, Dick Tracy, and the Phantom, all of whom started on radio or comic strips, but jumped to comics fairly early on. Also, I’m not talking about characters who have largely been associated with other media and only got comics later (Power Rangers, Transformers, etc.), nor am I talking about characters who debuted in movies (The Incredibles, Hancock, Darkman). Finally, all of the movies I’m including on the list are feature films (not serials) that played in America theaters or an American equivalent (like Netflix).

At the time that I began this list, I counted 136 movies that met my criteria and have based my list on that number. Since then, Morbius came out, and I also realized that both Danger: Diabolik and Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader got American theatrical releases, and need to be added to the list. I will review those movies on TikTok, but I won’t break the 136 numbering there. However, the list recorded here will cover all movies that meet my criteria, even as I add to the 136.

That said, here’s what I’ve reviewed so far:
