Here, we explore some of our favorite big screen super heroes and their comic book origins.

    I would argue that it was the success of X-men in 2000, two years before the first Spider-man movie, that really kicked off the superhero extravaganza we now enjoy… but Spidey made a lot more money, so I can see how that could be seen as the instigator too.
