Worst Comic Book Movies

Comic book movies have potential to be great, but these seem only to exist to pass off as money-makers and big news rather than entertainment.

The Top Ten

1 Dragonball: Evolution

This was a slap to the face for every fan of the Dragon Ball franchise. A slap to the face with a cactus into a pit of lava and a Kamehameha into the dirt just to top it all off. A TRUE Kamehameha, I should say, the one they used in THIS movie would cry at the sight of it's original.

They completely ignored the pure gold source material and instead gave all us fans a huge pile of crap. What's with the eclipse everyone knows goku transforms when he looks at a full moon, and because of this he accidentally killed grandpa gohan years prior as an oozaroo but has no memory of what he did. Also he was 11 when he met Bulma, 15 when he fought king piccolo, and never went to school.

One good thing about this movie is that it was better than The Last Airbender. - HyperKnight9X

X-men was good! Punisher was really good! This was terrible. - logblobo

2 Son of the Mask
3 Batman & Robin

Awful movie, one of the worst movies of all time. But what in the name of universe is the Dark Knight doing on this list, are you insane. This and Watchman should be on greatest. Also Iron Man 2(it sucks) and Son of the Mask are way to low.

How the hell is iron man 2 here, there's no cat woman no Batman forever no super man 4 or 3. hell with this list - nightblazer534

Thank You For Getting This To Number 3, This Movie Sucks - VideoGamefan5

4 Catwoman

Utterly atrocious. Terrible writing, story, characters & completely daft all round. One of the worst movies of 2004, which was already a terrible year for film in general. At least Batman & Robin was so bad it's good, but this? It's so bad, it's just bad, and killed a few careers in the process. - Mrveteran

She rubs catnip on her face. Not even joking

I love Halle Berry but, this movie was horrible. Sor

5 Howard the Duck

This movie and Superman IV should be rated much higher.

This is probably the worst movie I will ever see. A nightmare!


We get it Howard, you're a duck you don't have to keep repeating that you know. This film is a vile bag of garbage that makes Uwe Boll's films with the exception of his only good film Rampage look like the Hunger Games film adaptions along with The Harry Potter movies and The Mortal Instruments film adaption (undeniably a so bad it's good film read Reviews and you'll see). Nice try, George Lucas but this film is Howard the Duck and also stick to Stars Wars and Indiana Jones which are all way better so go watch these films instead of this big pile of dung.

6 The Incredible Hulk

Did you know that the original comic book, the hulk was designed to be grey? I also wrote the message before this

This hulk is actually not that bad, it's the and Lee version that sucks.

Every adaptation to the hulk has nothing to do with the comic book.

This isn't all that bad

7 Superman IV

These special effects are... I have no words. - Cyri

This is #9 should be #1 worst special-effects I have ever seen!


8 Fantastic Four

The 2005 movie - thomwim

9 Captain America (1990)
10 Suicide Squad

I have nightmares about Suicide Squad.

Easily The Worst


The Contenders

11 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
12 Steel

It has Shaq as it's main star. Yes Shaq, the basketball star who starred in Kazaam. Can you honestly get worse? It's just awful.

13 X-Men: The Last Stand

Wait, who the frig put "The Dark Knight" on this list?

14 Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie

No it's based on the card game

15 Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

This isn't based on a comic book.

16 Watchmen

How Dare you? This movie is a Masterpiece best visual effects ever!

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other DC Comics heroes are better than these cheap heroes! I fell asleep while watching this garbage!

Why is this here

17 Iron Man 2

Mickey rourke has is bird in the movie

I love this movie

18 The Crow - Wicked Prayer
19 Stan Lee's Lightspeed
20 The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D

I got nausea watching this because of the CGI, just goes to show CGI will die Auschwitz style in the razzie like movies. - ArpstaAmy333

21 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
22 The Punisher

This movie is not bad at all in my opinion this is my favorite comic book movie it's so underrated and deserves more praise than hate - christangrant

Its Decent Actually - VideoGamefan5

23 Marvel's The Avengers

This has to be a practical joker

24 Superman Returns
25 Elektra
26 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
27 Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
28 The Amazing Spider-Man 2
29 The Dark Knight

Why is this here?!

30 Vampirella
31 Thor

It simply sucks. It is one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my entire life! It made absolutely no sense what so ever.

32 Spider-Man 3

By far the best Spider-Man movie. - Rifft

33 Ghost Rider
34 Daredevil
35 Hulk
36 Green Lantern

It Sucked And CGI Suit

37 X-Men Origins: Wolverine
38 The Dark Knight Rises
39 Tank Girl

This whole movie is basically Mad Max's retarded sister

40 Spawn

Holy hell, the effects in this movie are beyond horrendous, and what the flying f@&$ was up with that stupid looking devil? He looked like Goofy if he mated with a hyena, got pubic hair put on his head, and had turtle dicks of ears, and the Violator, oh my god what'd they do to you man? If you've seen the animated series for Spawn you know why it's such a horrendous portrayal, John Liguizamo once again shows us why he's considered so highly annoying, there was not a single frame in this movie I enjoyed, and this movie should never be acknowledged for as long as time shall stand

41 R.I.P.D.
42 Red Sonja
43 X-Men: Apocalypse

Its Alright, Disappointing, But Alright - VideoGamefan5

44 Punisher: War Zone
