A street urchin is adopted into royalty to become an unusual prince in the unusual circumstances of his day;

A bubblegum movie. Pretty and decently-engaging.

Some sort of school for not-superheroes is heroic, but one of them becomes less heroic, requiring HERoism.

Bland.

After meeting people trying to make it big in Hollywood movies, a criminal weans himself off of his old life to try it for himself.

Something about alien technology being invented on Earth for some reason, and when an engine is shot it somehow makes a SuPerHERo, and something about the tesseract which I think was the invention but isn't it a power stone?
