My vote for the crappiest super hero movie of all time is 'SUPERMAN IV: Quest for Peace' and 'CAPTAIN AMERICA' which was so terrible it went straight to VHS release and has not even found its way to Walmart's $5 bin.

"SUPERMAN IV' took what started as a great series and finished killing off the francise for over twenty years, even 'Batman and Robin' was not able to accomplish that feat.

A topic near and dear to my heart!

The absolute worst bottom of the barrel for me would have to be George Clooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger in "BATMAN & ROBIN." Sooooo awful. I would rather have a root canal than sit thru that movie again. I stumbled upon that on TV not long ago and my son wanted to watch it, he loved it (keep in mind he was only four at the time) and I was thinking "Oh my God, I almost forgot how much this movie sucked."

Agree with you on "Superman IV: The Quest For Peace" too. The only redeeming quality in that movie is the scene where the camera slowly trails up Mariel Hemingway's legs when she has her feet up on the editor's desk in the Daily Planet office.

Though in "Superman IV's" defense, Warner Bros. (who had made the first 3 movies) farmed that one out to Cannon Films (home of Chuck Norris and uncountable bad action B-Movies), and they had just lost a ton of $$ on the "Masters of the Universe" movie so they slashed Superman's budget in half, recycled effects shots and basically made the movie as cheaply as possible. Even if it'd had a zillion dollar budget though, I doubt it would've turned out much good. (Where have you seen the guy who played "Nuclear Man" lately? Haha.)

I know I rented that "Captain America" movie years ago when it first came out on VHS but don't remember much about it at all. I guess that says a lot about how good it must've been, haha.

I actually kinda liked "Man-Thing," even though it had little to no resemblance to the comic series. (Man-Thing had powers in that movie that he never had in the comics, like being able to command plants and vegetation... that was Swamp Thing's gig. Maybe the filmmakers got the two confused?) As a plain ol' swamp monster movie it wasn't bad, but as a comic adaptation it gets a thumbs down. (It was a nice touch that they named two of the characters in the movie "Steve Gerber" and "Val Mayerik," who were the writer and artist of the old Man-Thing book in the '70s, though.)

Now that I think about it, Nicolas Cage's "Ghost Rider" could've been a lot better. The best thing(s) about that movie were mainly in Eva Mendes' blouse. Laughing

You are correct on Superman IV - Capt America was even better than that turd (and you know how bad that one is!!!!)

Other notable mentions:
Batman & Robin (nipples and butt cracks on the bat suit? wtf? george clooney as batman?)
The Punisher (w/ Dolph)
Judge Dredd (blah - that was on TV the other night, pretty bad!)
The Hulk (Ang "brokeback mountain" lee version), still a masterpiece compaired to some of the really bad ones!!!!

I know i'm in the minority but despite Ben Affleck, I kinda liked "Daredevil." Other than the fact that the Kingpin was a big black guy instead of a big white guy, it stuck to the source material pretty faithfully.

I saw that one in the theatre back when it came out. Great LOOKING movie, but not a very good film. I gotta say that Stallone looked BAD as HELL in that Dredd armor!!
I remember my brother and I cringing when we saw Rob Schneider's name come up in the opening credits -- we were like "What the hell is Copy Machine Guy" (his then-current character on "SNL") doing in this movie? Dredd doesn't need a wacky sidekick!"

I never saw "Elektra" either -- the bad word of mouth on it was enough to keep me away. How bad can it really be though? Hot chick wearing next to nothing beatin' the crap out of ninjas! Maybe I oughta rent it now that I'm thinkin about it. Laughing

I actually liked the dare devil movie, the only good thing about the Elektra movie, was Jennifer Garner, very nice piece of eye candy.

Hulk
Batman & Robin
Man-Thing
Captain America
Barb Wire
Steel
Daredevil

I can't comment on the Superman movies. I know III & IV are supposed to be REALLY bad, but I don't think I've ever watched them in full. Despite loving Superman, none of the original run of movies ever appealed to me.

Oh Gawd, I'd completely forgotten about "Steel" -- I watched about ten minutes of that one on HBO years ago, that was more than enough for me. Laughing very hard

"Barb Wire" - the movie stunk, but the eye candy was out-STANDING!

Does anyone remember the lame made for TV movies of Captain America in the late 70's? Those where especially painful as was the short live Spider-Man series.

Yep, I remember both Cap and Spidey shows. Haven't seen'em in forever but when I was a kid they were the bee's knees!

Let's not forget the awesome "The Incredible Hulk" with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, or Lynda Carter as "Wonder Woman." When I was a kid I used to wonder (haha) why my Dad seemed to like the "Wonder Woman" TV show because he always watched it with my brother and I ... then a few years later, when I "came of age" shall we say, and started noticing girls, it suddenly made sense. Laughing very hard

Found the opening sequence to the '70s "Spiderman" show on YouTube... wow, check out that funky jazz theme music! Sounds like something from a cheap porno Laughing very hard

Batman & Robin is by far the worst. It is definitely one of the worst movies ever made.

I think the movie is about on par with the comic. In other words they both suck. Spawn was the one of the prime examples of how crappy many comics were in the nineties.

Quoted for truth. (I never saw Elektra, since just about everyone tells me it sucks, but yes, Jennifer Garner is damn hot.)

It was in the $5 bin at Wal-Mart last summer so I picked it up and tried to watch it, but had to shut it off after like 20 mins. it was just so awful, but not awful enough to create a concept album based on the comic. That album is probably the best thing about that comic.

I never even considered listening to Iced Earth for the longest time simply because they decided to do an album based on a comic I hated.
I guess it shows you how seriously I took my comics back then.
