Superheroes

This category is an off-shoot of fantasy-action films, based quite often on an original comic-strip or comic book character. Fictional super-heroes with extraordinary powers, derived from 1930s-1960s comic books and other more recent sources, have been the subjects of numerous fantasy and sci-fi films (both live-action and animated, and serialized and feature-length) with action-oriented heroes and heroines. Superheroes are repeatedly chosen to be the subjects of big-budget blockbuster films, with glossy production values, expensive CGI special effects and sets, make-up, and costuming. Usually, a simplistic plot line involves the superhero's struggle against an arch-nemesis or super-villain usually interested in world domination, the acquisition of riches, or the wreaking of vengeance.
