The Weirdest Superhero Moments of All Time!

The Weirdest Superhero Moments of All Time!

We all love Dark Knight Rises and Joss Whedon's Avengers, but tragically, just about all of our favorite superheroes have, at one point or another, been severely mishandled. When this happens, these iconic characters go from superheroes to super-embarrassing, and these clips prove it. Here are our weirdest super hero moments ever!

1. Batman dances up a storm

Over the course of its run, the 1960's Batman series had no shortage of goofy moments, with everything from Batman on waterskis to Robin spraying himself down with "Shark Repellent". Well, nothing compares to this clip, where forgotten villain King Tut forces Batman to dance to "Music... Bat Music!" If there was a list of things Batman should never do under any circumstance, dancing would be at the top of the list. Well, at least he doesn't do the Dougie.

Weirdest Moment:

The whole thing, but at 39 seconds in, fans of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction may notice Batman doing a signature move John Travolta used in his classic dance scene with Uma Thurman. That is SERIOUSLY where the move came from!

2. Hulk Throws Bear

Bruce Banner's most popular line from the early 80's Incredible Hulk series was always, "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." Well, this is what happened in one episode, when a wild bear had the gall to get him angry.

Weirdest Moment:

We're going to have to go with when Hulk throws the bear on this one.

3. Spiderman Accepts a "Yummy Award"

In the early 80's NBC hosted the first and last "Yummy Awards." The bizarrely titled event featured this moment, in which a mush mouthed man in a checkered suit presents an award to the Saturday morning cartoon Spiderman and His Amazing Friends. This is the fiasco that ensued.

Weirdest Moment:

Hands down, it's gotta be Spiderman's desperate attempt at stand up comedy.

4. Superman the Musical! : Dance Fighting

Deep within the recesses of the Worst Ideas Ever Vault lies Superman the Musical, a 1970's cheese fest that had an actual Broadway run. Well, fortunately (or tragically, depending on how you look at it) it was captured in all it's horrendous glory for the world to see. If you've ever wondered why they don't make many superhero musicals, this is your answer.

Weirdest Moment:

It's a toss up between when Superman refers to his "freaky X-ray vision" and when while in the middle of beating up the bad guys, he muses that he "sure would like a T-Bone steak".

What do you think are the biggest superhero missteps of all time?
