Thank you, Wade Wilson, thank you so much. The recent release of Deadpool has become an unprecedented, unequivocal smash hit at the box office. In less than week’s time, the film has gone on to become the all-time best February opening, as well as one of the biggest superhero debut’s ever. Making things even more impressive: it did all of this with a hard R-rating.

We really can’t understate how massive this is for the comic book movie genre as a whole. The success of Deadpool has clearly begun to pave the way for other adult-oriented comic book characters to get their chance to shine in an R-rated adventure of their own. While some heroes and villains work perfectly within the confines of a PG-13 rating, others need to push the envelope in order to stay true to their roots. With that in mind we have compiled a list of the 10 comic book characters that truly deserve to be brought to life in an R-rated silver screen adventure. Check out the list and let us know what you think. Now let’s get the ball rolling with No. 10…

10. Hugo Strange/Arkham Asylum
Grant Morrison’s Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth has become known as arguably one of the darkest Batman tales ever committed to paper. In those pages it becomes patently obvious that the Gotham based loony bin is just as much of a character as the freaks that inhabit its cells. A film centering upon Dr. Hugo Strange and his demented experiments on the Asylum’s patients could mark a serious, mature turn for the DCEU. Think Shutter Island meets The Dark Knight. The Caped Crusader himself wouldn’t’ even need to show up, just make the whole film a morose character study about one man toying and tinkering with whatever rogues happen to currently reside at the haunting nuthouse.
