To me a superhero film requires at least some sense of an alter-ego, even if it's just a code name or some such thing as it is with the X-Men and FF. Some delineation between the character and their heroic persona.
Agreed. Chronicle isn't a Superhero movie at all. Also, they really don't do anything heroic that wasn't caused by them.
