As superhero movie fans know all too well, not every comic book character leaps off the page and onto the screen with spectacular results. For every Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s a Green Lantern. For every Captain America: Civil War, there’s a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Yet, just because the movie did not gel as a whole that doesn’t mean it was entirely devoid of merit. Oftentimes, a bad superhero movie will feature at least one great character who can keep you entertained while the rest of the film sends you to sleep.
It doesn’t happen often, but here are eight instances where awesome characters were stuck in crappy superhero films. As always, feel free to take to the comments section after reading to let us know whether or not you agree with our choices.
