    What is the Worst Comic Book Film of All-Time? [Reader Poll]

    This past week, the internet cried out in horror at the trailers of a number of upcoming comic book films. Hyperbole abounded, and people were calling a number of unreleased films – Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, X-Men: Apocalypse, Suicide Squad, Fantastic Four, Deadpool – terrible, months (or, in some cases, a year) before they will be released. While I, personally, am not super optimistic about any of those ideas, it seems as though people are forgetting just how many absolutely terrible comic films we’ve had already.

    It would take a whole lot for any of the films listed above to even come close to being as thoroughly awful as the films on this list. I had to set some ground rules for this, so it wasn’t just a Thunderdome of fanboy rage – I only picked one film from a franchise/property, all the films had to be below a 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, and the property had to start in comics.

    The list is pretty comprehensive, but let us know in the comments if we forgot anything! And feel free to defend a film you feel has been improperly included on the list – let the sniping begin!
