Marvel Comics Movies: Worst to Best

Recently, Marvel Comics have been turning out some very good movies (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk) - but it wasn't always the case.

I once boldly predicted Howard the Duck (above) - with its George Lucas pedigree - would be one of the biggest box-office successes of all-time. Then the movie came out and it featured a midget in an unconvincing duck costume. No more sight-unseen predictions from me!

Anyway, here is a complete list of Marvel movies, ranked by their Tomato-meter rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Surprisingly, Howard isn't last, and Spider-Man 1 isn't first. (Also, Wolverine is too new to be included.)

Here, as an added bonus, is my personal Top 10 from the same list (the ones not listed were either too bad - like Spider-Man 3 - or I did not see):

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Iron Man
  3. Spider-Man 2
  4. X2: X-Men United
  5. X-Men
  6. The Incredible Hulk
  7. Fantastic Four (not as bad as Rotten Tomatoes wants you to believe)
  8. X-Men: The Last Stand
  9. Daredevil (...but should have been SO much better)
  10. Blade
