2 Batman - Mask of the Phantasm

A note for those who voted for the Incredibles: this movie has been the crown jewel and gold standard of this genre for years and was the inspiration for the movie you chose. Also this movie explores the psychological torment of being Batman and the challenges he faces mentally an physically as both Bruce Wayne and Batman. The Incredibles is very thin when it comes to character development and is easily predictable and relies on comedy to make audiences enjoy the movie. I'm not saying it is in no means a bad movie, but simply that it has much less to offer than the Mask of the Phantasm.

Class act
The only true masterpiece
We get a superb balance between
Bruce Wayne and the tortures and
Burning with passion for justice
Desire of Batman

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

Even better than the comic that inspired it. - Solarian

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

My favorite batman movie

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

5 Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker

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

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.

SO SCARY AND SUSPENSEFUL - Ragz261

Just the best of best

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? "

This movie was bad to me

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 The Iron Giant

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

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

Best movie ever no questions asked

Overrated

10 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

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 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

This one is the best superhero animated movie according to me

Spider-Verse for the win!

Ï Thank that spider verse is better than awesome frome any superhero animated film

15 Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

Really awesome! It has the best version of Darkseid

16 Robocop
17 TMNT

i love it

My favorite animated superhero movie

18 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

So great to see alternate versions of my favourite characters in a great story

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

19 Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths

Underrated gem in the superheroes
Animated universe simply told story
Heartfelt character analysis of bravery and world domination love this little known
Master class

Loved owlman

20 Justice League: The New Frontier
21 Despicable Me

Not a superhero movie - darthvadern

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

It is number 1

27 Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

Beware the punisher

28 Green Lantern: First Flight
29 The Powerpuff Girls Movie
30 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.

31 Justice League: Throne of Atlantis
32 Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam
33 Justice League: War
34 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.
