Best Superhero Movies Ever Made: Darkman

Darkman is the underrated masterpiece from director Sam Raimi. Liam Neeson plays Dr Peyton Westlake who is injured in a mob attack on his laboratory leaving him a scared, broken man. He now feels no pain and with the technology he was working on, growing skin grafts, he is able to make up faces to wear thus becoming able to hid in plain sight. He plots his revenge on the mobsters who attacked him and ruined his life. This film is simply wonderful. It has the frantic Sam Raimi energy and is led by Liam Neeson going totally bonkers in the lead roll of Darkman. While it is not a conventional superhero film, it is certainly one of the best and most entertaining films ever made.
