Superhero Movie Reviews

Superhero movies adapted from comics tend to work.

Superhero movies based on original ideas (stories people created without basing them on other media) tend to be hit or miss.

I decided to look at a few “original idea” superhero movies that worked, to see what they did well.  I’ll include each review in this post as they come out.
