Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight.

Good versus evil doesn’t always play out in a stylized drama with dramatic lighting and inventive camera angles. Sometimes the battle is simpler – and more fun. Movies based on comics, graphic novels and the lives of fantastic heroes have bombarded the box office with bodacious battles and eye-popping visuals. They’ve got children and adults alike glued to their seats and wishing they had a cape. And when you’ve finished watching all these, pick up the Watchmen graphic novel to prep for the 2009 blockbuster.
