2. Superman IV: The Quest For Peace

Superman IV

As if Superman III wasn’t bad enough, along came Superman IV: The Quest For Peace a few years later to make things worse. While Christopher Reeve gave it his all for a fourth time as the Man of Steel, the abysmal special effects, bad acting by almost the entire supporting cast, and one of the worst superhero movie villains ever made this a follow-up which fans still wish they could wipe from their memories all these years later. In the movie, Superman’s goal was to rid Earth of all its nuclear weapons, but rather than touching on the political ramifications such a move would have had back then during the closing years of the Cold War, it was as over the top and silly as its action set-pieces. Throwing the Statue of Liberty into Metropolis? Seriously guys?!
