Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit theaters all across America today, and so far it's earned a pretty impressive 87 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It's poised to make a large fortune over the next few weeks, pretty much guaranteeing that a new Marvel movie will be made from now until the end of time.

Readers' Poll: The 25 Greatest Movies of the 1980s

Now we have a question for you: What is the greatest superhero movie ever made? Any movie counts as long as it features a character with super powers, preferably taken from a comic book or graphic novel. These movies have been made over and over, so please be very specific when you vote.  2002's Sider-Man is different than 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man. There have also been a ton of Batman and Superman flicks over the years ,not to mention all the sequels. It might just help to include the year when you vote, but we'll leave that up to you. Also, please only vote once and only for a single movie. We'll know something is up if we see 15,000 votes for 1984's Supergirl

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
