10 Critically-Reviled Comic Book Movies (That Weren't Actually That Bad)

The comic book genre has been spawning movie adaptations for decades now, and during that time, we've seen some truly revolutionary comic book capers come to life on the big screen.

Heroes like Batman and Superman exploded into movie theaters in the seventies and eighties, putting the genre on the map and paving the way for further superhero flicks to follow. Now, here we are decades later, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating the box office unlike anything we've ever seen before.

But not every superhero movie achieved success anywhere near the level of that lot. Some were outcast by critics, fans and just about anyone who watched them. Others made a lot of money regardless of what the critics said and still live in infamy because of it.

There are a lot of bad superhero movies out there, but there are also some that hide behind the reputation of being a bad superhero movie - some that, upon reflection, actually aren't so bad after all... and some that deserve a lot more credit than they actually get.

With that in mind, let's meet these superhero outcasts and discuss why their reputation just doesn't do them justice.
