Captain America: The Winter Soldier is dominating the box office rankings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out in a couple weeks, and X-Men: Days of Future Past is just around the corner. Big superhero movies often also mean big superhero games, and the genre’s improved significantly since the last time we took a look in early 2012—many of the games listed then were barely decent. Some stinkers have still come in the last couple of years, but mostly we’ve seen an array of solid-or-better games based on comic heroes. Here’s a selection of seven enjoyable iOS games where you can battle crime and wield some powered-up muscle.

Late Thursday, New York-based developer comiXology released its free PullList app for iOS. The app allows comic fans to create virtual pull lists, or pre-order comics for pick up from comiXology-connected local stores.
"The PullList App was created as a great discovery tool for new comics because it provides complete transparency into what’s being pulled on a weekly basis exposing comic fans to new titles that may be of interest to them," said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology.
