Re: What are your top 5 "first in the series" superhero movies?
Superman: The Movie and Batman '89 are still the standard for me, and prove that you don't need to wait until the sequel to have a true classic. For their historical impact and influence on pretty much ever comic book film, they deserve the top two spots.
As for the other three:
3. Batman Begins
4. Iron Man
5. X-Men and Spider-Man
