This year marks the summer of the superhero. Outside of Prince Caspian and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, all of the major summer blockbusters spring from the pages of comic books. (Heck, even Angelina Jolie is starring in a comic book film with Wanted.) But before you rush out to Iron Man, test your knowledge of four-color cinema with our Ultimate Superhero Movie quiz for a chance to win this Batman Special Edition DVD. The prize will go to the first person to correctly answer all 15 of these questions. In addition, the winner will be profiled and crowned the Ultimate Superhero Movie fan in an upcoming blog entry.
The quiz will run from Friday, May 2 to Friday, May 9 at midnight. The winner will be announced shortly afterward. (Make sure we have your correct name and email in your profile so we can contact you to deliver your prize.)
