Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 1 min read

Save me your grief about how superhero movies are taking over the theaters. I don’t want to hear it. I’m a geek, I’ve been one my whole life. I’ve been waiting for the day when great superhero movies would dominate the cineplex since I was old enough to hold a copy of Wolverine in my hands. We’re finally here – but only after decades of superhero movies sans advanced special effects.
Superhero movies have come a long way in the last 70 years, and as evidence, Bored Panda put together a photo list of superheroes from back in the day and today, and compared them side-by-side. With new costumes and gadgets, they’re almost totally new characters.

Captain America in 1990 and 2016

Spider-Man in 1977 and 2016

Wolverine in 2000 and 2013

Superman in 1948 and 2016
