While looking up my Superhero Couple Article I started wondering what the top rated Superhero Movie ever was, when it came out and how well it did at the Box Office. I now have those answers and am sharing them with you. I know some of you might be upset that Batman took up 4 spots on the list. Before I start getting a bunch of comments about other Superhero movies not getting a chance, know this, I went through 765 Movies to get these ten. If you want to go through more, be my guest. I am going to list the name of the Movie, the year it was made, the rating it has, and last of all it's total box office as of January 25 this year. Now, on with the Countdown:
