It seems that I'm am the only person on the entire internet that can't stand superheroes?

I find the entire genre ludicrous, overplayed, dull and overall irritating beyond belief. Every movie seems to have the same beats, melodramatic plots, horrible CGI, crappily staged action scenes, over sentimental, and THE SAME BLOODY STORY :angry

Every damn person the hero meets in their ordinary life turns out to be a supervillain or another damn hero, with Spiderman being the worst offender.

The most infuriating thing is that I seem to be the only person on the entire internet who doesn't get it, and the bloody things pour out more every year!

What is the appeal? I get the whole 'what if?' thing, but the movies are all the ****** same, just with different costumes and various levels of 'darkness'.

It's driving me nuts :facepalm

Superheroes are our modern day Hercules and Beowulfs. The appeal is in hearing stories of flawed, but ultimately heroic people standing against insurmountable odds. It's unfortunate that you don't feel that you get it, but that's okay. I don't get the appeal of chick flicks and most anime that my friends are into. Different strokes for different folks, and all that

If you don't like it, you don't like it. You don't have to explain yourself to anybody. It can be frustrating to have friends that are totally into a genre that you just don't like. They can't seem to fathom it. "But you must of liked <insert movie here>!"

Just ????

That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard, before the mid 2000's and the advances in CGI, bareley anyone gave a crap about superhero movies, because there were hardly any!

Certainly there were very few threads on here about them.

And FYI, I love sci-fi, horror, war movies, westerns, thrillers, dramas, documentaries, good anime...just about everything apart from superheroes, romantic comedies and stoner comedy :rolleyes

au contraire, superhero shows were a big part of our lives before cgi. There were no end to cartoons and the television shows ranging from the shadow and flash gordon to batman and the incredible hulk. Kids and adults still tried to dress up like them, act like them, and in a sense want to be like them. It's no different now than it was 50 years ago.

I have a friend that is very particular about which movies he will watch.

He loves zomibes, but hates movies on boats and pirates, so Pirates of the Caribbean is out.

Anything with Tom Cruise in it. Nope.

Anything "fantasy". Nope.

Like noted above; different strokes for different folks. Some people love Picasso, some people love scallops, somebody out there is eating Limburger Cheese.

I wasn't very clear in my rant...it's the Marvel and DC stuff I really can't stand. People like Alan Moore and Mark Millar have done great stuff in the genre, with varying success on the silver screen.
