Comic book movies ranked

Rotten Tomatoes has compiled a list of comic book- (and comic strip-) based movies, ranking them from worst to best. Like all of Rotten Tomatoes' features, the scores are based on averages of reviews from professional critics.

You'll find the usual suspects: caped crusaders, a web-slinging wall-crawler (with "Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man 2" both in the top five), scrappy mutants, and a few surprises, too; some of the most critically beloved films in recent memory have been adapted from the funny pages, including a few whose hand-drawn origins you may not have suspected (like "American Splendor" and "A History of Violence"). There's even room for a little Jean-Claude Van Damme and an intergalactic duck.


It's a real pain to go through the entire list, since each entry is on a separate page, so I'll enumerate it here.
