This article historicizes the emergence of the super-hero film genre, placing the recent surge in numbers of comic-to-film adaptations in the context of commercial strategy, and in relation to perceptions of comics' artistic validity. It argues that significant differences in production and reception between the media of comic book art and film need to be addressed in processes of adaptation, and that adaptations that do not address these features can be reductive of complexity, and even censorious. A survey of the phenomena establishes the terms of investigation, which are subsequently applied to Alan Moore and David Lloyd's V For Vendetta (1990). Analysis problematizes the model of comic-to-film adaptation which the film presents, on the basis that it rehearses and supports the limiting cultural perspectives which comic book artists have worked to escape.
