The vast majority of superhero films are just straight up trash, with the good ones being average at best films.

X-Men First Class (the latest one) was a real breath of fresh air into the genre. By far the best super hero film ever made in my opinion.

I never liked any of them tbh. Spiderman 1 was pretty alright at the time. Ironman is watchable and new Batman is boring as fuk.

Just from the top of my head, i'd put the 2 first Batman movies up there as well. Tim Burton and Michael Keaton made 2 perfect Batman movies.

I guess I don't expect too much of them. It's based on a comic book after all. These are not literary classics. I kept hearing that Wolverine sucked, but I thought it was OK. About the same as the Green Lantern, in my book it was OK. Neither were great but OK.

I will put almost every Superman movie except the first Christoper Reeve's one in the suck category. Also the first Hulk with Eric Bana. The second Spider-man was close and the third, did suck. The new one is back in the OK category.

I'm a huge fan of superheroes. They are the modern day mythology, and can be a good metaphor of abusing power, especially in the modern world saturated with weapons of mass destruction. They are the ultimate fictional escape. So close to our time and reality yet so detached.

Superhero movies are not as good their comic book counterparts, but they are getting mighty close. I've just seen the Avengers. I HAD A BLAST WATCHING IT!

The modern technology of movie-making and serious direction comic book superheroes are taking, we could expect even greater quality of superhero movies. And when the time comes for the Justice League movie...I will hold my fingers and hope they do it right, since it's my big desire to see them on the silver screen.

EDIT:
@Term

I think you underestimate the narrative power of comic books. Have you read Watchmen, or any of the legendary graphic novels?
