    I think The Mask of Zorro is probably the most solid movie on this list. Watching it again it really follows the template of the superhero origin followed by the best current Marvel movies. A-list actors, high production value, epic buildup and good writing. I never really thought of Zorro as a superhero growing up but if he's got a secret identity, a mask, a Zorro-cave hidden behind a fireplace and such, it must be.

Bob Kane was surprisingly up front (even blatant) about the Zorro/Batman connection.
The Mark of Zorro and Batman

I'm baffled by heroes who don't kill yet employ swords, arrows, or guns as their main weapons. These weapons are intended for killing and can't stop an opponent any other way. They just seem a poor choice.

I presume I'm right that Zorro doesn't kill in the movie you listed?
