Superman II, for that scene near the end where Superman is bringing a new flag to the White House. That image along with John Williams' classic theme makes for one of the greatest moments in cinematic history.

Too bad Richard Donner cut that out in his vastly inferior cut of the film. No wonder the producers fired him...
The Donner cut of Superman II is the only feature-length live action Superman film I've ever liked (I also liked the serials and the animated feature).

I'll have to think about which film I like best. There's not an obvious greatest, but there have been several excellent films of comic book origin.

(Is Over The Hedge a comic book film or comic strip film?)
