This is a big one. Superheroes mainly come from serialized comic books, which provide a farm system of episodic content that regularly percolates up to the movie level. Disney’s “Iron Man 3″($1.2 billion), Warner Bros.’s “The Dark Knight Rises” ($1.08 million) and Sony’s “Spider-Man 3″ ($890 million) are three of the four highest-grossing superhero movies ever globally. “Marvel’s The Avengers” is No. 1 at $1.5 billion.

Fairy tales, by contrast, are singular antiquities. “Alice in Wonderland” made 3D cool and took in $1.02 billion back in 2010, when Johnny Depp was still a star.
