That’s essentially why we love superhero movies so damn much. They highlight and celebrate the best of us while beating down the worst, and there’s a catharsis in these tales that we don’t often find in real life. Add in well-crafted action, fun quips, and fantastical visuals, and you have movies that entertain, excite, and encourage an idealism sorely lacking in our everyday interactions.

The list below features films both obvious and obscure, and while readers are sure to agree with some of our choices others are destined to boggle, bemuse, and bolster the belief that we don’t know what we’re talking about. Lucky for you, though, we do, and to that end each of our choices is supported by an argument exploring what makes it worthy of inclusion here.

A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine (also rendered super-heroine or super heroine ), although the word superhero is commonly used for females also.

Some superheroes use their powers to counter daily crime while also combating threats against humanity from supervillains , who are their criminal counterparts.

Some long-running superheroes such as Batman , Spider-Man , Superman , Captain America , Wonder Woman , Iron Man , Thor , the Flash , Wolverine , Green Lantern , and Hulk have a rogues gallery of many villains.
