8 Oddest Cinema Superheroes Ever

Ever since Tim Burton brought back Batman (1989), Hollywood has hankered to cash in on the superhero craze. With the proliferation of CGI special effects that can make cinema superheroes look especially super came a tsunami of films featuring invincible forces for good. Since 1989, there have been at least 40 films featuring marvel comic characters alone. There is no sign that Hollywood plans to slow down. Deadpool (one of Marvel’s most offbeat heroes) just set a record as the third-highest grossing R-rated film of all time. More movies are on the way, including a cage-fight film between Batman and Superman refereed by Wonder Women.

If there is a downside to all this superhero shlock, it is that most of these movies are just more of the same. Rather than being bored watching some guy in tights saving the world yet again, how about checking out some of cinema's most whacky and unusual superheroes of all time.

#8. Kick-Ass (2010)  An ordinary teen gets the hell beat out of him, but that’s okay. He gets some stainless steel bones and starts living the dream as a righter of wrongs. This black comedy, laced with profanity, violence, and uncomfortable innuendos, set the precedence for movies like Deadpool.

#7. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
