With the unbelievable success of Dark Knight, a whole slew of "critics" are dying to come out and say its not the best comic movie of all time.

Ok, fine, but tell me, what is the best then? I have a hard time coming up with a comic book movie better than Dark Knight. Before Dark Knight, I would have probably said the original Superman (Marlon Brando was too cool - as was Gene Hackman). But to me, Dark Knight far exceeded it.

What do you guys think?

Remember, critics are failed writer and often failed reporters too. But Roper seems to disagree with the critics and he's worth any 100 of those yahoos - he gives this town a better class or critic... growl

But Superman still edges out The Dark Knight as the best superhero movie of all time, to me.

I think it's a generational thing. I've seen comic book movies go from camp to serious character studies and drama. The Dark Knight is the benchmark for comic book movies that treat suspension of disbelieve with care. For that reason, I say it's the best.

The only superhero film I have actually bothered to watch more than once is Mystery Men ...

Superman doesn't even come close to the level of The Dark Knight.

The only reason Superman gets so much praise is because it was the first superhero comic book adaptation done to some degree of seriousness. However the film while good wasn't great. It barely had a villain, the acting was cheesy, the script went nowhere, and Superman was a cliched boyscout without any relevance and depth.

The Dark Knight is far superior to Superman at every level.

Here is my list of the top four.

1. The Dark Knight
2. Batman Begins
3. The Incredible Hulk
4. Iron Man

ok, while I did say dark knight far exceeded superman, i think its a bit of a stretch to say hulk and iron man were better. Superman was a great movie. marlon brando was a fantastic jor-el. so good, they dug up his audio to put in superman returns 30 years later. gene hackman as luthor was the best movie villain of all time (until Heath's Joker).

and lois "dying" there for a minute? that was intense until supes did the dumb go back in time thing.

superman was awesome!
