Tracking Cliches In Comic Book Movies
1. The female lead, love interest, and/or heroine his usually a redhead:
*Mary Jane: Spider-Man
*Chase Meridian: Batman Forever
*Jean Grey: X-Men
*Tess Trueheart: Dick Tracy
*Lana Lang: Superman III
*Poision Ivy: Batman & Robin
2. Characters who often experience "I feel like I'm going insane moments" due to their dual personas:
*Superman: Superman III
*Norman Osbourne/Green Goblin: Spider-Man
*Bruce Wayne: Batman Forever
3. Get at least one villianous character w/ hunchback like qualities:
*Big Boy Caprice: Dick Tracy
*Penguin: Batman Returns
4. Get at least one (usually villianous) character w/ severe facial deformities:
*Red Skull: Captian America (remember that for whatever the reasons, it was explained that the Red Skull's face was natural and had to get plastic surgery because of it)
*Al Simmons: Spawn
*Two-Face: Batman Forever
*Virtually anybody from "Dick Tracy"
*Dr. Doom: Fantastic Four (the cheap Roger Corman produced version of course)
*Shredder: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
5. The title character has to fight to clear his name at one point:
6. At least one character will be given a brand new "race/ethniticity" for the movie:
*Harvey Dent: Batman
*Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin: Daredevil
*Terry Fitzgerald: Spawn
Expect more examples to come!

The Roger Corman version of "Fantastic Four" doesn't count!
Ditto for "Punisher" with Dolph Lundren.
And that "Captain America" flick, althought I think Ned Beatty is great in any movie...
