Re: What are your top 5 "first in the series" superhero movies?
No offense to anyone who did, but I don't usually count animated CBMs along with my live-action ones. I just prefer to categorize them separately. Not to mention I'm not sure many of them could be considered "first in the series" as very few are origin stories and mostly assume you know the character.
Top five animated CBMs are probably:
Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme
Batman Under the Red Hood
Batman Year One
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies
Deadpool 9.5 | Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition 6.5 | Captain America: Civil War 10.0 | X-Men: Apocalypse 7.5 | Suicide Squad 7.0 | Doctor Strange 9.5
Tradition is just dead people's baggage.
