    Say what you want, but all X-Men movies are great and meaningful. Heck, even "X-Men Origins", despite some obvious screenplay problems and a less dramatic approach, is a fun movie with some impressive scenes, as well as capturing the "spirit" of the early Wolverine solo issues.

    Sebastian Shaw was a time traveler and "First Class" was the first divergence of the timeline.

    They're entertaining movies just like the MCU and DCEU that's it.

Most of his stories were given to Logan from Jean because Jean and Logan were portrayed as the forbidden love story and even his father son relationship with Xavier. It annoys me to no end and I hope he gets better treatment in the MCU.

    Well, of course. But they also look and feel more "sci-fi" than the usual superhero movies.

    The X-Men movies are more cinematic and with deeper and more controversial storylines.

    The basic theme of X-Men is Racism is bad and given those films have been made in the 21st Century that's not a controversial message/theme in the 21st Century.

    How did you get that out of what I said?

    Anyway, the X-Men movies are real movies with characters who just happen to have mutant abilities.
    They are character driven movies, with real world storylines.

    Non cinematic movies had real depth and provided intellectual discourses to films than the superficial cinematic films(MCU and DCEU) flocking cinemas. When Marvel fans talked about how provocative X-men films were and later the TDK series could be, why do some MCU fans quickly try to tell us they are not? is this because you cant say the same about the MCU movies?

    The fun spoofy entertainment spectacle era we have now is a MCU and DCEU thing. DCEU wanted to escape from it but seemed trapped to now be a copycat of the MCU. To put MCU in the same place as the top X-Men movies or to put the DCEU in the same place as The TDK Trilogy is beyond hilarious. I am not sure the teams behind those movies will agree to that, since they spoke about how different their movies were to the MCU.
