Now, granted that X-men is not avengers. It is still one of the best comic book movie franchises out there. Why? Well, to put it simply it knows what its audience wants. It has realized that it can make good stories by sticking close to what the mythology says. This franchise also capitalizes well on the character traits and chemistry of its characters. Wolverines appeal to women is a perfect example. There are others but I digress. It also knows how to show you just how amazing and emotional the lives of superheroes can be. Trust me these are very good movies. Now, with the competition of avengers… The franchise has had to up its game at every corner. This means each movie is better than the last. Each story is better than the last. Watch and you will see what I mean…
