Whether it’s Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Captain America, we can all agree that comic book movies have become somewhat bloodless affairs. Sure, these films rack up body counts, but much of the grit and grime of the action gets left on the cutting room floor. All that being said, don’t ever let anyone tell you that comic books are solely for children.

With Deadpool about to hit theaters, audiences should prepare themselves for a gritty, gory, and downright vulgar foray into the world of comic books. That being said, Deadpool is hardly the first comic book movie to go all out and strive for the R-rating. Over the years there have been some truly amazing, hard hitting R-rated adaptations. It’s a deep pool to choose from, but we have determined our ten all time favorite R-rated comic book films. Let’s get the ball rolling with number 10…

Although this meta approach to various genres has become common over time, we can’t argue with how masterfully Kingsman balances genuine drama and hilarious violence.
