Comic books are one of the hottest licenses out there right now. All you have to do is slap Spider-Man on a bag of socks and boom! It's out the door. The same goes with games based on comics - no matter their quality, they tend to sell like crazy. With so many lackluster heroes running around, it's hard to pinpoint which games are worth playing and which need to hang up the spandex. Well, that's precisely why we've hand-picked the best, most authentic comic book games of all time.
The five titles we've chosen aren't flawless games - they just accurately capture the powers, atmosphere and universe of the given characters. Franchises like X-Men and Spider-Man have seen several attempts, some more notable than others, but their most recent entries have sealed the deal. They've also made it painfully obvious that Marvel has the gaming sector on lockdown, as not one DC title made the list. Sorry Superman, your games are garbage.
