Christopher Nolan's 2008 masterpiece The Dark Knight may have single-handedly taken the entire superhero movie genre to new heights with intensely gritty and realistic (to a point) nature.
But, of course, Bruce Wayne and his alterego Batman can vouch for the fact that the superhero has had a rough time on film, from personal experience. In fact, they have, more often than not, gone horribly wrong - Batman and Robin wrong.
For every Tony Stark aka Ironman, we have had a Tony Farms aka Pumaman.
For every Joker we have had a Nuclear Man aka An Absolute Joke.
I should add, such lists have been done before, but too many allow those small-time crimes - such as aforementioned Pumaman attempting to fly and Spider-Man taking a helicopter instead of using his web -go unnoticed.
A regular like Catwoman makes the cut, but so does Rat Pfink, and a number of non-theatrical releases, straight-to-video or made-for-TV. They just shouldn't be exempt. Enjoy …
