Comics And The Box Office

Here are the top fifty comic adaptions and their domestic (North American) box office totals, compliments of the folks at box office mojo.
One thing to note is that these numbers are unadjusted for inflation and Tim Burton's Batman, while produced over 10 years before the big comic movie boom still took the 6th spot with over 1/2 billion dollars in domestic sales. Definitely impressive numbers.
