I was going to do these off-topic threads weekly, and then I got this post together, but the day I wanted to put it up, we had a ton news come up on the site and there wasn’t room (and when I hit post and the Jays suddenly announce a big news story I will not be surprised). Let’s consider these occasional off-topic threads instead of weekly ones.

Let’s have the question: What is your favorite superhero movie?

I went to Infinity Wars and I really liked it. I’m glad I liked it because I thought I was getting tired of superhero movies. And no I won’t give any spoilers on the movie. Please don’t in the thread either. And I came away wondering if it was my favorite superhero movie.

Disclaimer time: I’ve read comics for a long time. I have more comics in my house than anything else (even more than guitars). I stopped buying them weekly a few years ago, but I still occasionally look in. I went to the Calgary comic expo last week and shook hands with Neal Adams. If you don’t know who Neal Adams is, I’m going to morn the failures of the school system.

Anyway, I think my favorite superhero movie is Capain America: Civil War. Why? It reminded me of the of the Marvel comics when I was a kid. Heross fighting heroes, for pretty shaky reasons. The big fight scene was terrific. And then the smaller fight scene with Captain America, Winter Soldier and Iron Man was better.

Anyway, give us your pick for best superhero movie. But understand if you pick a DC Universe movie I will think far less of you.
