All X-Men Movies, Ranked Best to Worst

Updated June 6, 2019 5.9k votes 1.0k voters 6.3k views12 items

What if you woke up one day and were... different? That's the central question posed by the world of the X-Men, the fictional mutant superheroes created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. In 2000, the colorful characters made the leap from comics to the movies. All X-Men movies share similar themes of mutant rights and good versus evil, but each film takes a slightly different approach to the superhero story. This is a list of the greatest X-Men movies ranked from best to worst.

What films will you find on this list of X-Men movies? X-Men: First Class rebooted the series in 2011, going back to the 1960s to focus on the complex relationship of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr. The darkly comic Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds, is a fan-favorite spin-off in the X-Men franchise. Other movies featured on this list include Logan, X2, and the original film, X-Men.

Which X-Men movie do you think deserves the top spot on this list? Give the best films a thumbs up and share your favorite characters in the comments section.
