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 Son of the Mask
2 Howard the Duck Howard the Duck

This movie and Superman IV should be rated much higher.

3 Dragonball: Evolution 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.

The characters failed to give in the life-like impression of the original characters as in the manga or anime. That's the worst part. Goku doesn't look like Goku and Master Roshi? Don't get me started. Lol. - LightningBlade

If you think that the last airbender is a crap, this is worser

4 Catwoman 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) Captain America (1990)
6 Batman & Robin 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

How is this not number 1 seriously it was terrible - Thevcrewgeeks

This should be number one

7 The Incredible Hulk 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 Steel 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.

9 Superman IV Superman IV

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


10 Justice League of America (TV)

This isn't a list of worst comics T.V. shows, it's a list of worst comics movies. Somebody get their facts right!

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

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