On a rather less cerebral note, superhero comic books don't translate directly onto the screen, big or small, animated, CGI, or live-action. Oh, there'll be the fighting, the "Dude I have cool powers", there might be a close-enough version of the costume that doesn't look pathetic, there might even be some of the themes(power and responsibility, working together = good, etc).

But it's pretty much impossible to put quite as much dialogue per page. One panel with several sentences in a speech bubble as the hero throws a punch. That's hard to do anywhere else.

Aaaand I forgot what else I was going to say. I think it was supposed to be some kind of statement on the medium, but... yeah. *shakes head*
