We're just talking about superhero movies. There have been plenty of superhero movies that didn't draw directly from comics as source material.
Road to Perdition and American Splendor don't really belong anywhere in the equation. They don't feature superheroes, and the comics they are based on aren't superhero comics.
You could make an argument that Neo from The Matrix fits the superhero archetype. Plus, The Matrix was allegedly lifted from Grant Morrison's comic book series The Invisibles. So, you know, double whammy.
