The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Adventures of Captain Marvel

Director: John English
Year: 1941
For years Captain Marvel outsold Superman on the comic racks, and was the most popular superhero in the world, thanks in part to the success of this serial. The flying effects are kind of amazing, even today, and it features what is possibly the most accurate comic-to-film costume ever made. Certainly better than George Clooney Batman's areola armor.
