The Best Adaptations Of The X-Men To Watch
Of all the Marvel comic adaptations, the X-Men have been late bloomers to the screen. It wasn't until 1992 that the first X-Men animated series got past the pilot, but they've gained steam since then as this list of all the X-Men movies and TV shows prove.
X-Men movies and TV shows haven't always been dealt a fair hand, with some of their characters held back by exclusive licensing, or whatever it was that happened with Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The X-Men comics movies and shows have also run the range of genre and style over the years, from live-action to animated. They even range from the best comic book and superhero movies of all time, like Logan; to some of the worst, like X-Men: The Last Stand.
This list of all the X-Men movies and TV shows is just going to get longer as new X-Men movies are released. Of all the versions of the X-Men on screen, which are your favorites? Vote up the best X-Men shows and moves, from all the team's adaptations.
