This modern era of successful superhero movies started with first Blade movie in 1999. It has been going on for 15 years, with no signs of slowing down.

I would say the Tobey Maguire "Spider-Man" movie in 2002 really kicked it off.
Actually I think Blade started it, and X-Men kicked it off. Other movies have increased the genre's success later.
The original X-MEN only made about $150 million in domestic box office. And what was "Blade's" box office take?

"Spider-Man" made $400 million, really ushering in the superhero blockbuster.
