Superheroes in Comics vs. Their Live Action Versions

Superheroes in Comics vs. Their Live Action Versions August 11, 2017

Which superheroes and versions do you think are better?

Superheroes and comic books are all the rage now, with no clear signs of slowing down. This especially rings true for their live counterparts, in both film and television. Many fans notice however, that tons of changes happen before studios adapt characters to a different medium. The end result are character that are somewhat different from their source material. Here's a collection of iconic superheroes and their comic versions, followed by their live action versions. Some characters look exactly the same, while others almost look unrecognizable.
