Watch Hollywood butcher your favorite comics...

Comics, graphic novels... whatever you call them, Hollywood has been cashing in on their popularity for some time now. Unfortunately they've managed to produce some of the biggest stinkers in film history along the way. In most cases, the source material is much better than the trash that ends up on screen. Here are some of the worst, and also some predictions of stinkers to come (In most cases I hope not, though I'm resigned to it).
