Since last month I did a “best origin retelling” top ten, I thought I’d do a similar post, but for non-comic book media. Comic book movies, and comic book “type” movies (like GI Joe and Transformers), have become so popular that the market this year is actually overcrowded—even by my standards. And I’ll see any piece of crap that’s remotely tied in.

But the “origin” adaptation is special. It usually induces groans (“they’re rebooting Spider-Man/Superman/Batman AGAIN?!?”) and it usually doesn’t measure up to the comic book (I’m looking at you, Amazing Spider-Man).

But which do?

Find out at the break.
