Best Superhero Movies Not Based On Comic Books

Everyone loves Superheroes, right? I enjoy superhero movies, but maybe not s much as most fans, mainly because I don't know all of the backstory from the comics. That's why I like Superhero Movies inspired only by the imagination of the director, not a comic book.

Also, please add others if you can think of them, because I can't think of 10 that I've seen.

The Top Ten

1 The Incredibles

What else could be #1? It may not be my personal favorite, but I will admit, it is better than the ones I enjoy more, in quality of story, characters, etc. - LarkwingFlight

Best animated superhero movie! - PeeledBanana

No contest - Phillip873

2 Megamind

A cinematic masterpiece

3 The Matrix
4 Sky High

Witty family fun that is far better than expected.

5 Unbreakable

This should be number 1. Big Hero 6 and Men in Black are based on comics.

6 Men in Black
7 Big Hero 6

Disney knows how to make a good story, intriguing characters, and an amazing world. Even though there WERE Big Hero 6 comics, the movie isn't based on them, other than the names of the characters. - LarkwingFlight

Big Hero 6 is from Marvel comics.

And so is Men In Black, and no one's calling that a Comic Book movie. - LarkwingFlight

I love Big Hero 6, but technically it is based off comics. Megamind should be number 2.

Um... But it is based off of a comic

Like I said, the movie only takes character names from the comic books. Everything else is completely new, not taking anything from the comics. - LarkwingFlight

8 Robocop (1987)
9 Hancock

Number 1 retards

10 Despicable Me

My favorite anime

The Contenders

11 Darkman
12 Chronicle
13 Condorman
14 Meteor Man
15 Incredibles 2
16 Super
17 Birdman
18 Ratchet & Clank
19 The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl

Wish it would've been, might have been a better movie.

20 Spy Kids
21 Robocop
22 RoboCop 2
23 Robocop 3
24 Spy Kids 3-d Game Over
25 Glass
