I liked original Captain America.

If we define superheroism as "see things no one else can see, do things no one else can do", then for me it's "Big Trouble in Little China."

In order:
The Incredibles (Hands down, no debate. It's the best. It's also almost the best modern Bond movie, too, just without James Bond.)
The Rocketeer (Yes, it is. It's basically Iron Man: 1938)
Spiderman: Homecoming
Antman 2
Spiderman 2 (Toby Maguire)
Spiderman: No Way Home
Iron Man
The Avengers
Captain America
Spiderman: Far From Home
Doctor Strange
Batman (1980)
Batman Begins
The Phantom
The Shadow
The Batman Movie (1960s)
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (Mark Hamill's Joker, at least on the Big Screen)

Kick Ass and Kick Ass 2.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP06 Nov 2022 4:52 p.m. PST

#1 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
#2 Flash Gordon (1936)
#3 George of the Jungle
#4 Red Sonja
#5 Mystery Men

Honorable Mention Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Big Trouble in Little China

I considered Escape from New York, Mad Max, Death Wish, and Die Hard. But those are what are sometimes called "supernormals". Flash Gordon and (not) Tarzan are on the border of supernormal and superhero.

The first Michael Keaton Batman movie.

The first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve.

Captain America

The first Christopher Reeve Superman

Tippecanoe, you are entitled to your opinion, but it does not answer the question. When you don't care for an entire category of art, a quiet abstention is sufficient.

Guardians of the Galaxy

I've never watched superhero movies with the exception of the 1st Superman and 1st Batman movies way back in the day. Not a fan of the genre so no favorites. Edit, I also saw Deadpool which I thought was schlock.

My top few, in no particular order:

Spider-Man (2002)
Batman Begins (2005)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

I loved Flash Gordon (1980), but I don't consider him a superhero. Likewise Iron Man (2008).

Bunkermeister Supporting Member of TMP07 Nov 2022 12:08 a.m. PST

Batman The Movie, 1966 Adam West the Bright Knight
Captain America
The Rocketeer

Most superhero movies are not well done and I find them very disappointing.

But I do like the Batman 1966 movie, saw it in the theater originally, recently watched the DVD and MRS Bunkermeister and I are presently watching the series. I am also building a collection of 1/72nd scale Batman figures and vehicles and equipment.

Apparently, Tippecanoe does not want people discussing superheros on the Superhero board.

I don't particularly care for the Superhero genre. Never have.

By definition, I would say the the Star Wars movies are superhero movies.

Based on my limited exposure to the genre, I would go with The Incredibles.

I used to work with a guy who was a superhero fanatic. He told me that Antman was a good superhero movie for people who don't like superhero movies. I watched it and thought it was pretty good.

Deucey Supporting Member of TMP07 Nov 2022 8:05 a.m. PST

When I posed this question, it never occurred to me that people would be clueless as to what I meant by Superhero Movie.

Of course, I also didn't think people would go out of their way to tell me the entire idea is stupid.

Not any fan of the genre, so I've watched none of all those listed above.

Er… well, with the exception of Guardians of the Galaxy I & II – and I enjoyed them both, honestly.

tigrifsgt07 Nov 2022 3:26 p.m. PST

The Fantastic Four movie with Silver Surfer.

"An entire category of art."
Like rap "music"?
So this is now The Satire Page?

Lots of music I don't care for. But I don't burst into discussions of them to tell the people who do care for them how poor their taste is. This used be called "courtesy" or "common politeness." Possibly those concepts have not survived into the Internet Era?

rmaker07 Nov 2022 5:49 p.m. PST

The Mark of Zorro (1920)

Perris070707 Nov 2022 8:21 p.m. PST

I forgot Watchmen! That is a good one too.

WarWizard07 Nov 2022 9:36 p.m. PST

I also liked a lot of the Superhero films already mentioned.

I also really liked the 2011
"Green Hornet" with Seth Rogen.
I thought that was very entertaining.

Dn Jackson Supporting Member of TMP08 Nov 2022 12:58 a.m. PST

To me modern superhero movies are not good movies. Lots of plot armor, plot holes, and no logical consistency. However, they can be quite entertaining. For me;

The Incredibles 1 and 2
Mystery Men
Capitan America
The Avengers
Guardians of the Glaxy 1 and 2
I found these all to be entertaining

35thOVI Supporting Member of TMP08 Nov 2022 4:48 p.m. PST

I would say all the Avengers movies were good, with the last 2 being the best. Age of Ultron the Weakest. Captain America Winter Soldier and Civil War, The 3 Batman with Christian Bale, with Dark Knight being the best of the group. Heath Ledger's performance outstanding. Deadpool, which I did not like the first time, but really enjoyed since.

My favorite comic as a kid was Spider-Man, so I hold any Spider-Man movie to a higher standard and none have meant my expectations. But Tom Holland as Spider-Man has come closest. But for me, Mary Jane is ALWAYS a red head and not Zendaya. Yes I know "technically" she was not "Mary Jane". But we know better. 😉

"As Zendaya herself has said , the choice to remake MJ as Michelle Jones was an opportunity for Michelle to become her own character."

Bring in a real Mary Jane, and I'll believe it. 🙂

What Lewis said: Watchmen. It was a game-changer graphic novel, too.

mghFond10 Nov 2022 4:01 p.m. PST

Though not super-powered heroes, my favorite by far is Kick-Ass.

Most Marvel stuff does nothing for me.

However, I would argue "If you like a movie, then it's a good movie. That's all that matters."
