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 Son of the Mask
2 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

Technically not a comic book but a manga based movie.

3 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.

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

5 Captain America (1990)
6 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

The Bat Suit Was Awful

7 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

8 Superman IV

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


9 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.

10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

The Contenders

11 Fantastic Four V 1 Comment
12 Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Movie V 1 Comment
13 The Crow - Wicked Prayer
14 X-Men: The Last Stand

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

15 Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

This isn't based on a comic book.

16 Stan Lee's Lightspeed
17 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
