Superhero Showdown

Every superhero movie (er, except the ones I haven't seen), ranked in order. Hardcore nerdery.

Your definition of "superhero" may vary from mine, but note that this is specifically films in the superhero genre, not simply films based on comics (that's why Ghost World and Scott Pilgrim don't get in here, but The Incredibles and Unbreakable do).
