    Since the new millennium seems to have been the decade of the Superhero, I thought I would ask around at what YOUR top ten moments in this past decade's comic inspired movies were. As for mine:

    10. The first time Spiderman web swings through New York from street to skyline and everything in between.
    9. Joker's Magic Trick in "The Dark Knight"
    8. Rorschack's been set up and flees from swat team scene in "Watchmen"
    7. Ironman takes out a tank then flees from the F-22 raptors
    6. Wolverine takes out Stryker's Soldiers at the X-mansion in "X-2"
    5. Nightcrawler infiltrates the White House in opening of X-2
    4. Batman captures the Hong Kong business man in "The Dark Knight"
    3. Wolverine threatens to pop the third claw on the guy who lost his cage match then cuts the bartenders shotgun in half and threatens him with the claws on other hand. "X-Men"
    2. Batman has nothing to threaten the Joker with in his interrogation at the Police station in "The Dark Knight". ( a very powerful scene IMO)
    1. Magneto rips the iron out of the blood of the security guard and makes his escape from his plastic prison in "X2".

    You already mention many of mine so I'll just add the scene in Spiderman Two where spiderman gives it his all to stop a speeding train full of passengers. He succeeds but is so out of stamina he passes out and is about to fall to his certain doom before the passengers grab spiderman at the last second and pull him to safety it was a very powerful/touching moment imo.

    I dunno about 'top ten', but my favorite is definitely the highway chase from 'The Dark Knight'. When snippets from that scene first appeared in the trailers, Nolan really had me fooled into thinking it would be the film's climax.

    I no particular order:

    Prisoners throwing the detonator overboard, in The Dark Night

    Batman/fake Batman conversation in TDK "What's the difference between you and me?" "I'm not wearing hockey pads!"

    "Do you know where I got these scars?" "No, but I know where you got these!" in TDK

    Tumbler chase scene in Batman Begins

    "You're not the devil. You're practice." from Batman Begins.

    Pretty much any scene involving the Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie.

    "He's all yours." from Ironman.

    the cave escape, in Ironman.

    "This isn't the worst thing you've caught me doing." from Ironman

    The entire Ironman vs. Ironmonger fight scene, especially the "icing problem" and "This looks important!"

    Here are my top 10
    10. "General, would you care to step outside?" - Superman 2
    9. Batman's interagation with both Flass (Begins) and Maroni (Knight)
    8. Nick Fury's intro scene in Iron Man
    7. The entirety of the Hong Kong sequence, but especially how Batman gets Lau away from the authorities in the Dark Knight
    6. The fight scene in the end in Incredible Hulk
    5.V's conrontation with Mr. Creedy in V for Vendetta
    4. Spiderman 2"s entire train sequence
    3. The whole climax in The Dark Knight including the ending
    2. The whole scene where Iron Man whoops the Nine rings as well as a tank and outflies two F-22's
    1.In this corner, an 18-wheel truck driven by a bat-shit crazy clown and his goons, armed with a "bazooka", who's already managed to dump on SWAT truck in the river and has taken down a SWAT helicopter. And in this corner, the bat-pod, an iddy-biddy motorcycle detached from the destroyed Batmobile. Who wins? The bat-pod; as it flips the 18-freakin'-wheeler on its back!!. Plus Gordon returns in the most awesome way. Gary Oldman's Gordon is awesome.

    The first public appearance of Superman in Superman: The Movie. From the music to Christopher Reeve opening up the shirt to reveal the S-shield, followed by the helicopter save, it's still my favorite superhero scene of all time.

    Superman 2's tricking the trio by switching the depowering machine (like Optimus did this weekend). After putting up with those three for the entire movie, it was nice to see them taken down.

    edit: and you guys really made me want to rewatch that movie.

    I have to say, it's really awesome to see everyone's particular taste in comic book movies. You've all inspired me to go back and revisit some of those moments in movies like Superman 2 and Keaton's first Batman. What makes this even more of a pleasure is that it shows that we as fans aren't just about bashing a movie for all of its source material inspired inaccuracies, but that we actually have enjoyed and absorbed some very breathtaking moments from these films. (Now watch that comment spark the 10 worst comic book movie moments:p )

    I always liked the scene in Batman Begins where the corrupt cop is upside down and Batman's trying to get info from him where he says-
    Cop- "I swear to God!"
    Batman- "Swear to ME!"
    That scene alone made me buy the movie.

    Sin City- Marv getting electrocuted. Classic.

    Spawn- The two-seconds you see Angela walking past the camera in the ballroom. The rest of the movie sucked.
