This is a new video from Screen Rant that lists 10 iconic superheroes who actually used to be uncool. Comic book movies are simply on fire, as can be seen with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.

It may have been their look, how they were presented in various formats, or something else that just didn't appeal the audience. Check out the synopsis and video below.

In this video, we'll run through a few examples of that: Here are ten badass superheroes who used to be uncool."
