Shouldn't The Avengers count? Well assuming it does not:

Batman Begins
The Incredible Hulk
The Amazing Spider-Man
Iron Man
Captain America: The First Avenger

Avengers is kind of hard to categorize, since its both the start of its own franchise and a sequel. That's what happens when people do something innovative.

The fact that only one other person besides me so far has picked The Crow is just blasphemous.

I wonder how many people even know that it's comic book related. Nevertheless, it's a great movie. Brandon Lee's death was such a tragedy. He was on the verge of really breaking out on his own.

Yeah word was he would've been a candidate for the Neo role in The Matrix.

After reading the comics this movie is based on, and the comics based on the comics this movie is based on, this movie is the best thing on the Crow

Nice to see The Mask get some love, though it didn't make my top 5.

I was thinking about bringing up The Crow, but, I don't really count that as being in a series when it's really it's own thing, lol.
Imo, The Crow shouldn't really be brought up as it's a solo film, really. The following sequels, while they tried to fit with the same theme or what have you, it's not the same character from the first installment.

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
Planet Hulk
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

If I had to do a list of animated CBMs, I'd have to put The Dark Knight Returns part I and II together and at the #1 spot. Possibly my best Batman films that trumps The Dark Knight Trilogy.

The dark knight returns series was just ok. Nothing special. Maybe I had to be hear to read the novel. I mean it's not bad at all, don't get me wrong. Well Superman was awful in how he was used but Batman was perfect besides being 280 pounds. I liked Carrie but if Batman having a 13 girl as his partner and driving tanks for him against superman is kind of ridculous

Nothing beats Batman Begins as a setup/origins film for me. As I can see many people agree

In no particular order:

Batman Begins
Spider-Man- strongest of the Raimi trilogy IMO
Iron Man
Superman: The Movie
Tie between Thor and Captain America

That's all assuming that X-Men First Class and Avengers don't count as firsts

It's first third is incredibly character-driven for a action blockbuster, easily more than anything that came before it and arguably any after (though the other films in the trilogy carried that torch in different ways). It plays out almost like an indie character study on Bruce Wayne.
