I really like all of them except Daredevil and Wolverine Origins. But I'd give top spot to Batman Begins.

I'm going to vote for Man of Steel, just because I don't think its going to get a lot of votes and most of the genius of the film seems to be lost on people because they only want to talk about how Superman killed Zod.

With the exception of X-Men: Origins and Dardevil though, all of these are good movies. (TASM>Spiderman though)

You forgot quite a few though.

Dang it! I'm just realizing I forgot Punisher and Thor.

Batman Begins without a doubt.

@fallschirmjager: I forgot Thor and Punisher but which others?? I left out Batman (89) and X-Men because they aren't origins stories although they are supposed to be the first in a trilogy they aren't telling an origin story.

@darehulk: Thor, Punisher, Fantastic Four, Spawn, Kick Ass, TMNT, Blade, Hulk 2003 and The Incredible Hulk 2008, Hellboy, Ghost Rider and Green Lantern all come to mind off the top of my head.

There is probably more though :D

None of them are my favorite origin story movie...but they may be for some.

Iron Man or Batman Begins. Two of the best origin CBMs, and two of the best overall CBMs of all time.

Daredevil don't belong on that list.

I gave Iron Man the vote because some sort of credit has to be given for making a B-list comic character an A-list Hollywood grossing machine. Honorable mention to Captain America and Batman Begins.

Iron Man. Batman Begins isn't far behind

First Class only got 2%?!?!?!

Batman Begins followed by Iron Man. Then Man of Steel.

#16 Posted by slade_wilson (638 posts) - - Show Bio

First Class is absolute awesome-sauce.

#17 Edited by Blackdog2009 (1902 posts) - - Show Bio

MOS, not only the best origin movie but also the BEST SUPERHERO movie of all time (so far). BB is the second best origin movie.

Superman (1978). It set the standard for all superhero origin movies to follow.

#19 Posted by PeppeyHare (4310 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man followed by Batman Begins. Man of Steel is 3rd

Iron Man winning >.>

I voted MoS. It was, in my opinion, absolutely flawless...except for that one thing.

#21 Edited by Bierschneeman (4209 posts) - - Show Bio

captain america... hands down

superman 1978 is easily the worst

#22 Posted by Husk (461 posts) - - Show Bio

hmm... some of these votes are lower than expected.... I wonder if the Batman Begins fanboys, Amazing spiderman, and Man of steel fanboys are also the ones that give so much to Iron Man, ....hm..

ohh the worst is Superman, I don't even know why its up here, it in no way belongs with the others, And who put a vote down.... thats sad.

I'm trying to figure out why you put Wolverine Origins in there...

  1. Tie between Batman Begins and Captain America: TFA
  2. Iron Man
  3. Spider-Man
#26 Posted by DareHulk (216 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd rate them like this:

1. Batman Begins

2. Iron Man

3. Spider-Man

4. Superman: The Movie

5. Man of Steel

6. Captain America: The First Avenger

7. X-Men: First Class

8. The Amazing Spider-Man

The rest are irrelevant.

Why is Thor not on here? That deserves the vote.

Anyway, I vote Batman Begins. It's not my favorite film on here, but I think it's the most well-done origin in a comic movie.
