Quasar had bracelets and Adam Warlock used the word "entelechy." Otherwise, I'm drawing a blank. Very few comic book movies without nostalgia value work very well.

People don't care how obscure the comic is. They just care if it looks like a fun movie.
Of those four, Blade is unwatchable; Hellboy really only works if I pretend that the new guy actually was recruited because he has some sort of healing powers so what's-her-name goes sane and John Hurt is cured, so that it genuinely matters when his character is killed; The Mask is nothing but Jim Carrey; Men in Black did work, but then, I said, very few, not none. The Rocketeer works well too but its premise has the nostalgia factor built in.

Obviously, the subtext is "very few work for me..."
The people of this country need regime change here, not abroad.
