1) Blade started it? lolno.
2) I for one am really glad Cameron had nothing to do with X-Men.

Alright then, what started that boom in the late 90s early 2000s? It was predated X-Men and Spider Man. Yes there were many adaptations before Blade, but the recent craze that has seen a comic film come out about every year over the past decade or so really stems back to Blade.

I agree, it certainly wasn't Punisher 89, Cap 90 or Fantastic Four 94

I don't think, to the general moviegoing public, Blade was a superhero film or even a comic book film.
It fits much more naturally into the vampire movie category, and that's how it was marketed.
Predating doesn't mean it had that influence - "people like comic book films again - let's make more!". I've seen it debated as to whether Spiderman or X-Men really started the trend, and I've always understood it being predominantly the latter.
But Blade? No way.

And I've seen it argued several places that it was Blade... what makes your places of debate more legit than the people who see that because blade was successful it triggered the suits (not the public) to buy up other comic properties and start releasing them. The public, whether they knew it or not, sent a message to the people who did know that Blade was a comic film.

FWIW, i actually agree with both of you,
Blade never really felt like a comic book movie, I never knew it was for a long time, but it was the first Marvel movie success, which definitely triggered "the suits" to reconsider Marvel properties for movies, the first being X-Men, which when it was a success, triggered Spider-man in 2002, and Hulk and Daredevil in 2003, getting made, followed by the swathe of Marvel movies we've had almost non-stop since.

"For what it's worth..." what? For what it's worth, you think it's okay that he doesn't know the acronym?
