Super adaptations? Some comic book fans like film adaptations, but others don't
Our superheroes are jumping from comic book pages to the movie screen in increasing numbers, and comic fans have mixed feelings about it.

Movie adaptations of "The Fantastic Four" and the Batman series are due out this summer, on the heels of the recent release of Frank Miller's "Sin City," with Hollywood hoping to match the big bank it attained with the earlier "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" films.
