Default A challenge: Rank the Wikipedia List of American Superhero Films that you have seen

Apologies if this has already been done, but I searched the forum and found nothing for this:

Here's a challenge for all. From the Wikipedia List of American Superhero Films that you have seen, rank them top-to-bottom from 'most enjoyed' to 'least enjoyed'.

Your ranked list can be what you assert to "objectively" be a best-to-worst order. But it's probably more accurate to think of it as the order of films you enjoyed most for your own personal, subjective, idiosyncratic reasons. (Personal reasons can include the belief that a film is objectively great of course.)

I know for myself there are some movies that I really like a lot that have serious flaws... and several that are despised and mercilessly bashed by critics and fans alike... but I happen to like them for my own reasons, warts and all. And by the same token, there are some films that a lot of fans love that I just didn't get into as much.

Anyway, here is my list. I bolded the ones that I realize are probably out of step with most other fans, but again I have my own personal rationale for the order:

(And by the way, I think a fun way to think of this is as a kind of individual fingerprint that reflects your unique CBM fan 'identity'. For all practical purposes likely no one else you'll ever run into is going to have the same ranking order as you. If you have seen, let's say, 40 or more superhero films, I'm going to guess that the odds that you'll ever interact with someone who has exactly the same ranking is infinitesimal--probably virtually nil. (If anyone who has skills in calculating probability theory formulas can weigh in on that, please do!) Anyway, it's a kind of unique blueprint or signature, your CBM fan "DNA," if you will.)
