Default Re: Let The Hero Lose.

Batman essentially loses at the end of The Dark Knight. Him taking the fall for the Two-Face murders was a stalemate maneuver that ensured that the Joker didn't win and that Gotham was saved (for a time), but it still ends with the hero being chased by police dogs and vilified. As far as I know it is the only superhero film to do this.
