Both are quite tough and... A bit overlapping, I'd say. I mean "The Matrix" certainly has elements of superhero genre and so does Indiana Jones,  Valerian is based on comics as, so do "Cowboys vs. Aliens"... 

I'll probably vote for "The Terminator" in the second one, becuase Kyle Reese is guaranteed to be underrated everywhere, as for superhero couples that would be a bit harder to pick...

I think most superhero movies are inherently action movies, but not all action movies are superhero movies. As for the lists, I I appreciate the fresh set of "eyes", I  moved Michael Corvin and Seline from action to superhero (extra-ordinary power). I agree others may view it differently.

I guess it would depend on your definition, but I think there is a clear divide between the two lists. Based on my own perceptions of the two and the purposes of this poll suggestion:

The action list includes skilled, duos operating within the action genre. They usually are dressed normally, but could be uniformed depending on their profession. If they an illustration origin it tends to be in as a graphic novel.

The superhero duos are usually have at least one member with some extra-ordinary power, are costumed and are affiliated with a known superhero/alternate organization (AVENGERS,JUSTICE LEAGUE, ETC). Most superheros  are comic based from DC, Marvel or a 3rd party comic.

If there still is some confusion on how to classify as the duo has both properties somehow, I would use the one they lean toward most.

Thanks for the help.

I thought the same, more of a "rule of thumb" than a hard fast rule. Daredevil and Elektra, Batman and Cat Woman, Ant-Man and Wasp Nite Owl and Silk Spectre II all fall into the category of those who lack supernatural abilities, but still qualify.  By definition, superheros may also be simply extraordinary or  exceptionally skilled to qualify for the label
