The only Marvel films that can compete are Iron Man, Blade and to some people (not me) Spider-Man 2, X2 and to youngins ... the uber-dumb Avengers.

DC also paved the way for the comic book movie genre. Even if you don't like the films, much like Marvel characters themselves, they owe everything to these two films:


And they have the superior animated films, like you said.

DC has had it's embarrassments: Superman III, Superman IV, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, Catwoman, Superman Returns

Green Lantern (though no worse than Thor or CA: First Avenger)

Marvel has had even more: Howard the Duck, original Captain America, original Punisher, Thomas Jane Punisher, Punisher: War Zone, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider 2, Elektra, Spider-Man 3, Blade 3, HULK, X3 Last Stand, Wolverine Origins, and the redundant and stupid Iron Man 2 (IMO) Captain America: FA

They all suck. They have Iron Man, and Blade. The rest if they don't suck are cookie cutter and AVERAGE at BEST.

Iron Man 2 was good, Thor was rushed but still a good movie, and the Cap movie had plenty of heart. Superhero movies can still be good if they're not all dark and serious like the Batman movies. Marvel made their movies fun, but a bunch of them have been disappointing (Spiderman 3, the Fantastic Four movies, Ghost Rider films, Daredevil and such).

I was watching the original Superman the other day and that movie is cheesy as fuck. How can you praise that but then shit on well done movies that are nowhere near as cheesy as that movie? You must be a DC fanboy or something.
