List Rules Vote up your favorite fan made poster!

A great poster is a piece of fine art. The poster has more jobs than most people realize. It has to sell the film without the benefit of a trailer. It has to present the cast, pitch what the movie is about, and show some plot,  while not spoiling too much. And we all know with Superhero's everyone has a very specific take on his or her favorite hero.

With such a zealous backing of creative types its no surprise that a lot of the best posters don't come from the studios, but from the fans. Comic readers know, love, and live these characters so naturally they would know how they want them portrayed. And let's face it... the studios have so many people to answer to that sometimes the vision gets distorted and watered down. With a talented fan creating it, the poster comes out just as they intended and a lot of the time it's incredible.

Enjoy this look back at the best fan made superhero posters of all time! Not all of them could make the cut, and excluding them wasn't easy so vote up your favorites below to find out which is the greatest unofficial superhero poster ever!
