Superhero allure has grown more and more over the years. Every summer new caped crusaders tackle the big screen, with each one seemingly setting their own benchmarks for record sales.

The first mostly black superhero adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe grossed nearly $1.3 billion globally, and currently sits as the 10th most lucrative big screen movie of all time.
