Not a fan of Avengers, Batman or X-Men? Try these on for size instead
'Mystery Men' (1999)
Superhero cred: They aren't the Avengers, but this band of misfits do have powers and costumes to match.
Why you might like it: Slightly before its time, this comedy skewers the ridiculousness of the superhero genre with heroes such as Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller), The Shoveler (William H. Macy), The Bowler (Janeane Garofalo) and The Blue Raga (Hank Azaria). Even though it was directed by commercial director Kinka Usher, it actually feels like one of Stiller's movies. So, if you're a fan of "Zoolander" and "Tropic Thunder" you might be pleasantly surprised.
