That's a tough call, man.  They both missed the mark pretty badly but in completely different ways.  Book 7's treatment of Flagg pissed me off more, I guess, so I'll go with that.

Movie versions of comic characters often seem more likable to me because superheroes in comics are so often portrayed as complete assholes these days.  Movie versions get to take the essence of the character and present it without the baggage of years and years of event comics pushing them to confrontational extremes.  I have some faith that the MCU, at least, seems aware of this issue as well.  The MCU version of Civil War was pretty tame compared to the comic version.

Sure, but just as often, they suck all the life out of a character/can't adapt what's great about the character for shit.

I was thinking of doing a list like that as well but I figured it would probably be too long.

Just for a sample:

Dr. Doom
Dr. Doom, again
Juggernaut
Poison Ivy
Mr. Freeze
Elektra
Daredevil (Afflek, Cox is wonderful)
Iron Fist (not as bad as some here)
Catwoman (HB's portrayal)
Ghost Rider
The Fantastic Four
The Fantastic Four
Need I go on?

Oh and it's not like MCU or even Civil War is above reproach here. That guy playing Zemo did a good enough job I suppose, but he is completely forgettable compared to his comic book counterpart. On the whole very little complaints from the stuff they put out though, but as a whole, getting comic book material right on the big screen isn't always so easy. Obviously if the movie is bad, the characters won't be enjoyable. These things are often clearly linked.

I said "often", not always, and hero portrayals rather than villains.  I was also focusing mainly on the MCU, since Fox and DC sucking more often than not is something I agree with.

I've found the Whedon run to work well for this scenario.

Littlefinger's death seemed lame but that's by intent. He isn't a major player. He thought he was and so did the audience (like we did Ned and Rob.) When it comes down to it, he's a bitch. So he went out like one.

Plus, it was clear he was scrambling in his last scheme. It was some Season 1 plotting and the Starks are beyond that now. He was obsolete.

Agreed, though I think Littlefinger *is* a major player in the books.  I think Cersei is basically taking his spot on the show as final human villain due to audiences responding viscerally to Lena Headey's portrayal.

It wasn't by much, but Daredevil was better than Danny when they fought.  Jessica interrupting their fight kept Danny in the game, but DD was clearly doing better.

The Iron Fist would change the equation, of course.

Isn't that just water splashing on the White Tiger sword making the eyes gleam?

Yes.

Well considering we've never had any flashbacks of Danny's harsh upbringing with the monks, it's pretty easy to take Luke's side in seeing Danny as privileged.

In episode 2 of Iron Fist, I believe when he's talking to the shrink, we see a flashback of the monks beating child Danny repeatedly with sticks as a daily ritual.  They definitely should have had a few more examples of what he went through via flashback, since this brief glimpse clearly didn't sufficiently register with the majority of viewers.

I think Jessica would win, but due to the sword she'd probably take a serious injury.  JJ isn't very skilled so it's unlikely she can avoid getting stabbed or cut, but she could probably then hit Colleen hard enough to take her down before succumbing to any wounds.
