List Rules Movies must be based on a comic put out by Marvel.

Although Marvel actually released several films before the modern explosion, they were, how you say? Not good. It wasn't until Bryan Singer's X-Men that Hollywood really took notice. Since then, many Marvel movies have gone on to become blockbuster franchises, including films introducing beloved characters from the Marvel pantheon like: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Captain America.

In 2012, years of preparation and lead-in films culminated in the release of The Avengers, an epic-scale event film bringing together a number of the company's most iconic heroes, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. The film opened with the highest weekend domestic box office gross of any film in history (not just a Marvel Studios film), earning over $200 million in its first 3 days in theaters.

Here is the list of the best films ever made based on Marvel comics and characters from Marvel Comics. And as Marvel keeps churning out the hits, make sure to vote-up and submit your favorites!
