While the decade gave us a new breed of captivating superhero films, there were also lots of stinkers. Which do you think is the worst?

Hello James, 
There are lots of (often deliberately) terrible "superhero" movies (& TV series) made in the UK. We don't take superheroes very seriously over here and they're more likely to be comic characters like Danger Mouse (1981) (TV Series) or Bananaman (1983–1986) (TV series) 
 
OK, they're not made in the 2000s but I think you get the idea  :) 
 
    Steve

I guess it's a subjective matter in deciphering what's terrible or self aware. Then again UK comic book writer Alan Moore wrote Watchmen which is a whole deconstruction of the superhero genre. So every country has the capability of producing serious superhero stories.

That is ought to be very subjective, since many of those movies have a devoted (if at times limited) fanbase.

I've gone by the rule that a movie has to have less than a 7 to qualify to be on the list. There's some on the list which I like- Blade II, The Incredible Hulk, The Punisher, Hancock, etc. Although I've put them on there knowing that some people don't like them.

I wondered about 'The Incredible Hulk' since it has a good meta-score and an ok IMDb rating, but maybe it has a fervent anti-audience that I don't know about. Either way, it's probably fine because if people don't think it was bad, they just won't vote for it. 
Oh, I just saw that you said -- right above (how did I miss that?)  -- you did have a guideline in place, that of an IMDb rating of below 7. Any objective standard always helps. 'Well made and good poll. :)

Explain why 'Blade II' is included? It's the best of the trilogy.

It's simply because it has less than a 7 on IMDB. I know I like it as well but there are probably some people who disagree with us.
