Top 50 Comic Book Films of All Time (LIST IS CLOSED)

I recently tried to do a list of the very best comic book films, but there's so many it's hard to choose from so I had an idea of how I would do this...

-YOU vote in the comment section on comic book adaptations that you think are the very best. You must give a rational explanation of why you think that film must be added. If you disagree with a film on the list, you must give a reason why it should be kicked off.
-These films, of course, must be adapted from either a comic book, manga, or graphic novel.
-Films that get the most votes will be added to the list. If a film gets enough votes to get kicked off, it will be kicked off.
-The list will be closed when we get 100 films.

It's as simple as that. I'll start with five of my personal choices and we'll start from there...

UPDATE!
Realised how difficult it would be to get to 100 so I shortened it to 50.

UPDATE!!
This list is now officially closed. I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to this list as your input was greatly appreciated.

  • Fair do's with Judge Dredd then (despite the fact that the plot is basically Demolition Man).
    I still think Thor is the weakest of the Marvel bunch and nothing's going to sway my opinion of that annoying wench Kat Dennings. ... and Hulk is atrocious. It attempts to be this cerebral, operatic masterpiece and just fails in every respect. It saddens me that Louis Letterrier's The Incredible Hulk didn't become the hit it deserved to be because it is infinitely better than Ang Lee's abortion of a movie.

  • Is there any good reason why From Hell isn't on this list? For what it accomplishes in terms of adapting a gargantuan comic and managing to keep the tone intact it certainly deserves a place here (in my opinion).

  • No idea why X Men 2 is on here..that thing was god awful.....

  • @Everyone
    Alright folks, Hulk is out. Thor stays because as many nays I've gotten, it seems there are still even more yays for it's inclusion.

    Well, it's been 24 hours and now this list is officially CLOSED. Hope you're all happy with what is on the list because it is gonna stay that way. No more will be added and no more will be taken away, unless Dredd happens to be a more faithful and better adaptation. In that cast, Dredd will replace Judge Dredd but nonetheless, this list is closed. I'd like to thank everyone for contributing to this list. Each addition was greatfully appreciated.

  • Speed Racer? Hellboy II? X-Men 3? Fucking Judge Dredd? All these over The Dark Knight. I understand we all have different opinions, but it just seems like you put it there because everyone else loves it so much.

  • You know, I don't know why I ignored M.K. Nelson's comment 2 years ago because it annoys the piss out of me right now.

    M.K. probably doesn't even care about this list anymore (not sure why I do), but I don't care. It's gonna drive me nuts if I ignore it any longer. You did realize that not only this list was determined by community votes and not myself, but this was in no particular order, right?

  • The list has numbers, so it didn't really appear to be in a random order... You know what annoys the piss out of me? How you're able to get my last name wrong, when it's written right in front of your eyes.

  • SHOTS FIRED

  • @M.K. NIELSEN, Ok, first off, Idk why you're so pissed. I meant no hard feelings about my comment. Just thought it was weird that I never corrected you two years ago. Second, what pissed me off was that everything about this list was not only in the info, but in the comment directly above yours; which is written right in front of your eyes now as it was 2 years ago.

    But hey, we all make mistakes, right? ;)

  • Opinions are like arseholes. Everybody's got one and some prefer Tim Burton's Batman to Christopher Nolan's.

Please to comment.
