Which TV and Movie Adaptations Of Comic Books Actually Got It Right?

Please tell me y'all enjoyed The Umbrella Academy.

It seems that book-to-TV/movie adaptations are rarely done well, but when it comes to comic books, the stakes are even higher.

Not only do you have the story to live up to, but you also have visuals of what characters and settings are supposed to look like. So I want to hear from you: What are some comic book adaptations that actually lived up to their source material?

Maybe you've thoroughly enjoyed The Umbrella Academy and its take on the Hargreeves' wildly interesting family dynamic.

Perhaps AMC's The Walking Dead brought dynamic characters like Rick and Michonne to life while also introducing new people, like Daryl, to keep the story fresh.

Or perhaps you found that Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer really brought the French novel to life with actors like Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, and Tilda Swinton.

Maybe you thought the X-Men movie franchise had what all movies with Marvel characters should have: well-written heroes (and villains) with cool powers and a lot of action.
