Karen: We comics fans have been very fortunate to have seen a blossoming of super-hero films over the last few years, with this summer giving us four big flicks. So far, both "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" have proved to be very entertaining, and the upcoming "Green Lantern" and "Captain America" films are looking good too.
But it wasn't always like this. In fact, super-hero films used to be a rare beast - and a good super-hero film was a miracle. Don't believe me? Take a look at some of these TV and movie attempts at bringing our heroes to life. Oh the pain....
I don't think this Justice League pilot ever aired...at least I'm praying it didn't.
I had the misfortune of seeing this execrable FF movie many years ago, when a friend bought a bootleg tape of it while three of us were at a Star Trek convention. Later that night, after a long dinner at a Mexican restaurant where the waitress had a black eye, we plopped down in the hotel room and watched this thing, in stunned disbelief. None of us could ever make out a word Doom said.
An Italian Red Skull? That pretty much tells you all you need to know about this one. Yeesh.
