Top Ten Animated Superhero Movies

The Top Ten

1 The Incredibles

One of my favorite Pixar movies and there is the sequel coming out in 2015 I think - Ajkloth

This movie is really funny and exciting! You guys must watch!

It's not the best superhero movie but it sure is the best animated one! I love this so movie so much, it's my second favorite Pixar movie after Finding Nemo. But this movie is amazing! Great plot and everything.

I never knew Pixar could make their own superhero franchise until this movie came out, I'm going to see The Incredibles 2 this summer

2 Batman - Mask of the Phantasm

This will always be my favorite batman movie

Batman 1 to 100,other starts from 101

If you wanna say animated superhero than there is only batman, rest r sidekicks

3 Batman: Under the Red Hood

Animation has a feeling of creating atmosphere when escapism helps is be transported into another realm
If you want to see the finest example of action, adventure, suspense storytelling this is a one stop
Powerhouse display of perfection
Repeated views is recommended

Jensen Ackles was perfect as Red Hood and would also make a good live action version of him.

Even better than the comic that inspired it. - Solarian

It's MA15+ which makes it great.

4 Big Hero 6

This should be #2 after incredibles

I liked this more than the Incredibles, a heroic movie that my personal Walt Disney movie. - iliekpiez

Everybody keep at 6. Just for laughs

This movie must be placed at the top #1! No second thought! - Victoryboy

5 Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker

I wasn't even the biggest batman beyond fan but this made me enjoy it. The writers did a truly fantastic job with this one. This could make anyone love batman beyond.

This is a fresh new take on the masked avenger adding the dynamic
Dramatic undertones of dimension depth of feelings and joy

7 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2

Loved this even more than part 1. I really enjoyed the creepier take on joker. Even though Michael Emerson is no Mark Hamill he will still be remembered. My favorite scene of both movies though had to be the final fight between batman and joker. I could feel every blow like I was right there with them. Do yourself a favor and pick up the deluxe edition which contains this and part 1 today!

I'm really fond of this adaptation of The Dark Knight Rises by Frank Miller. I also love how Batman destroys Superman!

"You say you answer to some kind of authority. But they only want me dead because I'm an embarrassment to them. Because I do what they can't! What kind of authority is that? "

Part one was kind of boring, but part 2 is awesome.

8 Justice League: Doom

Loved it. This movie shows batman can kick any one's ass if he wants even superman or martian manhunter isn't safe from the bat's wrath

Batman is awesome in this movie! His comments are awesome!

9 Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

This is a splendid special spectacular adventure I revisit this one on a regular basis a must have the plot goes deep into the psyche of evil forces at work

10 The Iron Giant

I didn't know that Jennifer Aniston was in this. Awesome movie!

This counts as a superhero movie? I mean, it's awesome, but really? - Solarian

Best movie ever no questions asked


The Newcomers

? Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

This one is the best superhero animated movie according to me

Spider-Verse for the win!

The Contenders

11 Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo

I loved this movie, it should be number one. The incredible's aren't even marvel or dc.And plus this movie is actually really good and interesting, and suprising.

I went mad for a second until I noticed there is no Go!
I'm plan'ing to watch the original
Not some bootleg trashed reboot

12 Superman Doomsday
13 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

I wouldn't necessarily call it a superhero movie since they don't get to be superheroes till the near the end of the movie. - egnomac

This movie is cool! - lizard302

What the movie was terrible

Screw this movie it's godawful

14 Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

Really awesome! It has the best version of Darkseid

15 Robocop

My favorite animated superhero movie

i love it

17 Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths

Loved owlman

18 Justice League: The New Frontier
19 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

Liked that the story that was slightly more focused on flash than batman or superman. Some people overlook flash and this movie shows why you can't

This movie shows the true power of the flash

Come on number 22 is very low
it deserves to be in the top 5 - iamBATMAN

20 Despicable Me

It is number 1

21 Iron Man: Rise of Technovore
22 Lego Batman: The Movie
23 Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter
24 Incredibles 2 Incredibles 2
25 Despicable Me 2

It is number 1

26 Green Lantern: First Flight
27 The Powerpuff Girls Movie
28 Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

Beware the punisher

29 Batman: The Killing Joke

I bought this today, I would say it's my second favorite of superhero animations because it is so dark and you get to go deep into the jokers mind! People would be surprised that my all time favorite is superman doomsday. I love how superman dies then comes back. Both movies for me get 10 out of 10!

I think this movie will move up on this list because it's only been out about a week and it's based off the most popular batman graphic comic book.

30 Justice League: Throne of Atlantis
31 Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam
32 Justice League: War
33 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1

Both this and part two are one of my favorite adaptations of batman. loved the scene when batman takes out the batmobile to fight the mutants who have literally been givin military grade weapons and they still cannot even dent the batmobile. Awesome...just awesome.
