Top 10 Obscure Superheroes Who Deserve Their Own Movies

For every Batman, there’s a Matter-Eater Lad. For every X-Men, there’s a Legion of Super-Pets. There are comic book characters and groups who make it big, and there are those who never find a lasting audience. Only now and then do the obscure characters get noticed, and even more rarely do they get the big-screen treatment (Blade is the notable exception). Here are ten superheroes there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of, but that we at GeekDad think are good enough to carry a movie. Please feel free to list your own entries in a comment, or make some casting suggestions.

 10. Machine Man: He’s a sentient robot with flight, super strength, speed, vision, and reflexes. He can put special tools in his fingers, including a gun and all kinds of scientific equipment. In one story, he falls in love with another sentient robot. There’s all kinds of potential here, and he even has a human identity as Aaron Stack, an insurance investigator.
