As a kid, I enjoyed reading comic books and watching animated television series about superheroes. Among my favorites were Spider-Man, Batman, Thor, Iron Man, and the X-Men. This is why, as an adult, I enjoy the super advancements in cinematic technology that not only powers (mostly) live-action superhero movies, but has also propelled them into mainstream culture.
One of the mainstays of the superhero genre is that the super villains are usually the most interesting characters, displaying more of a flair for the dramatic (e.g.., Joker vs. Batman), striking a more commanding presence (e.g.., Magneto vs. Professor X), and spouting off far wittier lines (e.g.., Loki vs. Thor — Spider-Man and Robert Downey, Jr.’s Iron Man being exceptional exceptions).
