X-Men and Spider-Man, for sure.
But Hulk, Iron-Man and Captain America were more mainstream than Fantastic Four and Dr. Doom.
Conversely, DC is finding more success eschewing from its second largest hero (or maybe first? I don't know but everyone knows Superman).
I think people just want good movies. If Ghost Rider (both movies) weren't dog shit, he might have been big by now as well.
Although we know Sony turned down all of Marvel characters for only Spider-Man. But they followed with choosing Ghost Rider over ANY of them? Good Lord.
