I kinda tuned that post out after that first sentence.
Considering the poster, good move.
Translation: The esthetic quality of comic book movies is such a loser I'd better go off on an irrelevant but gallery pandering aside.

History of Violence and Road to Perdition weren't trash but the critical approval for them was mystifying. It wasn't til afterwards, trying to figure out what was wrong with them, that I even knew they were based on "graphic novels." As far as popularity goes, the biggest hits are generally those that have long established fan bases, i.e., nostalgia. Iron Man is like The Mask, strictly a star vehicle. The Avengers of course had massive buildup with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Iron Man II. There are many who find nostalgia a major factor in the success of a comic book movie.
