Comic books are a great medium which are now being embraced more than ever thanks to the success of superhero movies. They’re no longer a niche form of entertainment for “geeks”, but if you are new to the worlds of Marvel and DC Comics, you’ll definitely want to do your best to avoid these truly terrible stories.
For the most part, comic book movies don’t directly adapt stories, though it has started happening more and more recently, even if a lot of changes are made during the transition from page to screen (Captain America: The Winter Soldier for example). There are those however which should never make it to the cinema…
Here, you will find just ten of the best worst examples of terrible comic book stories which we hope to never see adapted. Some are ridiculous, some are offensive, and a few were just downright disappointing, but they’re all unworthy of ever getting the movie treatment.
10. Superman Shoots A Porno
Superman’s villains have transformed him into any number of strange things over the years, usually with some sort of mind trick. However, one of the strangest came when a villain named Sleez (which was appropriate as it turned out) managed to turn the Man of Steel into an adult film star.
After being kicked off Apokolips for his depraved nature, Sleez brainwashed both Superman and Big Barda to create a sex tape which would help him fund his planned war against Darkseid. Just as they started shooting, Barda’s husband busted in and put a stop to things going any further than kissing.
So, even those Clark Kent never became a porn star, it’s a safe bet to think that Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. won’t be tackling this any time soon.
