Superhero Highs: These campy comic book movies are way better when you're high

Superhero movies are all the rage. Between DC and Marvel, blockbusters about spandex-clad crime fighters are filling theaters and raking in billions of dollars every year. But how many of them are stoner friendly?

You want something light, goofy, maybe even straight-up dumb, so here are a handful of superhero movies that are best enjoyed with a joint or two. Some of these are good, some are bad and others so bad they're good. Let's put the "green" in Green Lantern.

BATMAN: THE MOVIE (1966):
The 1960s Batman TV series starring Adam West has long been a stoner staple, with its pop-art color schemes and wild comic-strip aesthetic, complete with "POW!" and "BAM!" text bubbles that fill the screen during fight scenes. This feature-length spin-off is more of the same but on a bigger budget, with all the series' iconic villains — including Burgess Meredith's Penguin and Cesar Romero's Joker — teaming up to take down the Caped Crusader. Holy bong rip, Batman!
