10 Comic Book Movie Characters Who Looked The Part (But Still Sucked)

No Comments

A lot is made of how characters in superhero movies look in comparison to their comic book counterparts – whether it's in terms of their costumes, their facial appearance, their coloring, their size, or whatever else. But we really have to ask why this is actually the case?

If Hugh Jackman's Wolverine proves anything, it's that it really doesn't matter how they look Рif the performance is good, the aesthetics in comparison to the source material are ignored.

Jackman is considerably taller, less bulky, and far better looking than the comic book Wolverine and, of course, he doesn't wear his iconic yellow costume – and yet he's one of the most popular comic book movie characters of all time.

On the flip-side, there are some comic book movie characters who looked great, but still sucked – and that's what this article is going to prove. Here are ten prime examples.

Ronan the Accuser, as drawn by Jack Kirby, has the classic look of the character in question – and it was that version that Marvel Studios drew inspiration from when they adapted the character onto the big screen. Sadly, he was still pretty poor.

Lee Pace played the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, showing up as the main villain in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, but there really wasn't much to him.

He came across as fairly powerful – powerful enough to fairly comfortably take on the entire titular team, even before gaining his Infinity Stone power-up – but he was underdeveloped and boring. Still, at least he looked good.

Now let's move on to one of the most hated comic book movie villains of all time – and our first DC movie entry.
