With the summer blockbuster season in full swing, it's safe to say we'll be getting our fill of superhero movies this year.
No matter what the year, the summer movie season will always mean at least one or two superheroes fighting evil on the big screen.
Whether it's Christopher Reeve as Superman, Toby Maguire as Spider-Man or Christian Bale as Batman -- not to mention X-Men, Fantastic 4, Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America and more -- fans have flocked to their local theater year after year.
Sure, we've all got our favorite superheroes, but if you ask any comic book aficionado, they'll tell you that not all heroes are all that, well, super.
So we couldn't help but wonder: who are the five lamest superheroes of all time?
We start with a look at the man of steel. No, not that one, the other one ...
No. 5: Steel as played by Shaquille O'Neal
OK, we admit it. We actually saw this stinker.
Hey, we remembered the character from our younger days when we would read DC Comics, and in the late '90s Shaquille O'Neal was big.
"Steel" is a 1997 movie based on the DC Comics character John Henry Irons, and starred O'Neal and Judd Nelson, which should tell you everything you need to know right there.
Steel is basically a guy, in this case a 7-foot-1-inch, 325 pound guy, in a suit of armor with fancy ray guns. Think the knights from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" meet the guns from the original "Battlestar Galactica."
That's right! Steel is a modern-day laser wielding knight out to take revenge on Nelson's character who stole weapons designed by Steel and used them to arm his crime gang. Had enough yet? So did everyone else who stayed away from this bomb.
But at least Steel was big and strong, unlike our next "hero" ...
No. 4: Ant-Man
The name says it all.
This Marvel Comic hero had the power to reduce to the size of an ant. And that was pretty much it, other than the fact that he also could control ants, which we suppose is really helpful if his plan is to ruin Doctor Doom's picnic.
Perhaps what is most shocking about Ant-Man is that he survived not one, not two, but three incarnations. The original Ant-Man, Hank Pym who invented the shrinking methods and ant control, later handed off his powers a reformed thief.
The third and final Ant-Man was anything but "super" -- using his status to seduce women, and humiliate and torment others.
Want more? Well don't worry. Word is Hollywood is considering an Ant-Man movie if they can come up with a good script.
We just hope the movie ends up being better than the next entry on our list ...
No. 3: Blankman
While "Blankman" did not come from the pages of any comic book, and was clearly a superhero parody film; we just had to include the Damon Wayans character on our list.
