This week Neil Calloway looks at a forgotten Marvel comic book film from 1990…
With the release next week of Captain America: Civil War, it’s time to look back when Marvel Films weren’t blockbuster event movies with bottomless budgets and huge all star casts.

They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.
