    "Imperfect" Is Right - Boring game play mars Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects.

    We've all been kicked in the junk by Marvel superheroes before. Watching Elektra was like two hours of nut-pummeling by a relentless, sac-hating donkey. But superhero films -- even bad ones -- gross bazillions of dollars. So it's no surprise that Mar...
