Great article. I've always been frustrated at how Hollywood seems to totally and consistently misunderstand (or ignore) what makes comics work. Comics may be, essentially, pretty resistant to adaptation, but a few movies have done better than others. It's nice how you make clear that just pulling out the characters and slapping them into a standard action-movie plot (with or without the addition of an embarrassing, "campy," "stylized" look) does not a good super-hero movie make.
