I added a couple of suggestions. I had never heard of 'Toxic Avenger', and Googling it, apparently it had three sequels I've never heard of either. But the web tells me it's a "comedy horror" series, not a superhero series.

I can keep you busy adding super hero movies if you want but I hate to create work for you. Consider Kick Ass, Dr. Strange 1978, The Phantom, The Shadow, Green Hornet, Nick Fury: Agent of Shield 1989 (David Hasselhoff), Condorman 1981, Sky High, Steel, Meteor Man. I have seen them all, good, bad, ugly, sequel. A list of worst movie may really get people talking about the bad ones. Btw, I actuallly liked the Phantom Movie, and Rocketeer.

I don't think Kick-Ass is a super hero movie. It's a movie about the whole super hero thing, and how that doesn't really translate to the real world that well.

Toxic Avenger is the best thing that ever came out of Troma Entertainment which considering that Troma specialised in campy B-grade spoofs of 1950s horror isn't saying much.

The Toxic Avenger was a spoof of the Swamp Thing and Hulk concepts (he falls into Toxic Waste and is disfigured but gains superhuman strength and stature) it was definitely comedy but if you consider either Hulk or the Swamp Thing to be superheroes then so is Toxie.

BTW it also spawned a musical and a cartoon series (Toxic Crusaders)
 

I gave 10 votes but personally I would have kept it to a top 5 list. Too many of the options in the poll are just not worthy of being top 10 anything. Not necessarily BAD movies, just not good enough for any special consideration.

I only found 7 even remotely worth voting for.
What about the various animated movies? Batman:Under the Red Hood? Mask of the Phantasm (even had a theatrical release!)? Flash Gordon? The Shadow? Green Hornet (OK, that one SUCKED, but was at least recent)? The 1970s Doctor Strange movie? The Punisher Movies (3 or 4 of them)? The Incredibles? TMNT (there are what? 5 or 6 of them?) has been mentioned.

I'm only familiar with a couple of those - Kick Ass, Green Hornet, the Hasslehoff SHIELD movie (to my regret), and I think I remember the Rocketeer.

I don't see Pixar's The Incredibles on the list. Do I need new glasses?

Also, the found-footage teen superhero film from 2012, Chronicle, should be included. It's a damn good movie, period.
