Comic book heroes came to the big screen in advanced special affects in 2000 beginning with well- known heroes as X-Men, Spiderman and The Hulk who were extremely realistic looking.

The new millennium recreated classic hero movies that the world already knew about.

It seems as though the entertainment industry has almost run out of heroes and heroines to make movies about. Instead of a new hero, a sequel or prequel is what audiences have been getting in the last few years.

Recently, Thor hit theatres as a different type of savior than the other aliens and mutations in movies. As a god, he has mythological powers such as flying and weather control to protect Earth with his signature hammer and abs. “Thor’s hammer is pretty lame considering how strong he is, he should have something else more intimidating,” said sophomore Laura Bowker. Academy Award-Winners Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman are some of the many featured actors in the film. This summer, Green Lantern (June 17) and Captain America (July 22) will be introduced into the comic book movies phenomenon.

Ryan Reynolds and his abs star in Green Lantern as an average guy that comes across a “power ring” from an alien. He then gets the ability to fly, and produce energy in multiple ways.

Former Human Torch of the Fantastic 4 is Chris Evans starring as Captain America in the WWII era. A frail young man who is not let into the military due to lack of weight and strength is secretly transformed into “the perfect human specimen” when injected with chemicals in an effort to transform him into a super-soldier. His improved fighting techniques, strength, endurance, speed, reflexes ect. along with his indestructible shield are used to aid the US war effort.

With these new faces, who’s left to make a hero movie about? Possibilities include heroes such as Aquaman, The Flash, and maybe even Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy? Who knows
