Comic Characters That Really Shouldn't Get Movies

Don’t you love superhero movies? If so, you should consider yourself lucky to be alive at the height of the superhero film. Thanks to advancements in CGI, filmmakers are no longer limited to the restraints of practical effects. For instance, if Spider-Man needs to shoot a web over a thousand flaming buildings made out of squid, you can watch it happen. In the last few years we’ve seen characters ranging from masked vigilantes to supersoldiers, and space pilots jump from the pages of a comic to the silver screen, but pretty soon Hollywood is going to run out of superheroes to make movies about. They’re going to start scraping the bottom of the barrel. That’s why we’ve put together this list of comic book characters that should never have movies made about them.

Stilt-Man, Vibe, and Arm-Fall-Off-Man are just a few of the characters on this list that we pray never grace the silver screen in our lifetime. We don’t think we could handle barfing up all the barf that we would spew if you made us sit through the 90 plus minutes of one of these sub-par characters' movies. While Guardians of the Galaxy was a film stacked with B and C list characters, we don’t think it could be done again. So while it’s possible that someone could make a passable movie about Dazzler, we highly doubt it.
