Live Poll: The Best '90s Superhero Movie

Before Marvel and DC essentially became the sole proprietors of the genre, we had '90s superhero films! This decade was the period that presented fans with a variety of awkward, campy and yet (super)bly entertaining superhero flicks.

Which of these '90s Superhero movies will you most likely remember?

That is a tough choice. I almost equally love Darkman (1990), Batman Returns (1992), The Crow (1994) and The Shadow (1994) and quite enjoy most of those movies, to be fair (I mean, TMNT and The Mask, I am more of a fan for original comics in both cases, but those movies are really cool). Haven't seen a few of those yet in entirety (Mystery Men and The Rocketeer, in particular), but expect them to be really good as well. 

Still, the list might use a few additions. Namely: 
RoboCop 2 (1990)
Timecop (1994)
Tank Girl (1995)
Men in Black (1997)
The Matrix (1999)
Inspector Gadget (1999)

All of those are, more or less, borderline cases, but quite a few movies on the list are already. Plus superhero movies are almost always combine a few genres.

I've just noticed that the 1980's list includes some TV movies, by the way, so if those are eligible we have a few more contenders: 
The Owl (1991)
M.A.N.T.I.S. (1994)
Generation X (1996)

Also, for the sake of international variety, there's Prizrak (1991), a great late-soviet superhero/vigilante thriller, which is, unofrtunately, not that known.

Hey Nikolay,

Thanks for the input! For your first string of suggestions, I have added:

RoboCop 2 (1990)
Timecop (1994)

Will need to deliberate over the other to deem if they qualify as "superheroes". I will also look over your second group of suggestions to see if any of them fit the bill.

Well, I am a fan of rather unconventional approaches to superhero elements, so I sometimes have a much broader and philiosophical definition of the term. :) Glad that two of my suggestions made it, as they probably are the two most fitting for actual superhero rather then superhero elements intermixed with other genres... And both movies are quite good and a bit underrated.

Actually, 1990 belongs to the 1980s (1981-1990), just like the new millennium started Jan 1, 2001, NOT Jan. 1, 2000...but who's counting?

It is probably one of those things like Sunday: many people say that week begins with sunday, but for the centuries people would rather consider it an end of one.

Think of it this way: What year did the very first century start with? It ran from year 1 AD to 100 AD and so the second started with year 101 AD. And so on...  It's a logical thing, unlike Sunday being the first day of the week, which is a cultural thing.

Congrats Kyle. I knew this one would make it: cool pictures, decade-themed poll, a continuation to another homepage one... not to mention: not suggested by me. The perfect combo :)

I am not big on superhero movies, but if I have to make a choice - it is Batman Returns. Blade would be my second choice.
