The Phantom

Put some respect on his name.

The purple suit-rockin’ pulp hero who anchors this old-school romp may not have a fan base as large as Batman or Wolverine, but so what?

Personally, I enjoy the heck out of this unsung mid-’90s flick, and think it’s superior to most of the Marvel movies.

Billy Zane has roguish charm as our grape-colored good guy, Catherine Zeta-Jones is fantastic as an air pirate, and Treat Williams is a hoot as big bad Xander Drax.

When he delivers the line, “Have you heard the exciting news? We’re going to the Devil’s Vortex!”

Chef’s kiss.
