Though it’s had its ups and downs over the years, the X-Men franchise has managed to not only persist, but also grow in the last 16 years - recently leading to the release of X-Men: Apocalypse. We’ve seen characters grow, timelines altered, and spin-offs launched, all as the series continues to help mold the comic book movie genre.

Now that X-Men: Apocalypse is in theaters and we can look at the totality of the franchise’s path over the last 16 years, we figured now would be a great time to look back at the long legacy of fantastic action sequences and rank them. Where will your favorite land? Read on to find out!

16. X-Men - Statue of Liberty Torch battle
When Bryan Singer’s original X-Men movie first came out, the modern comic book movie genre was only starting to grow, and CGI wasn’t exactly what it is today. As a result, the action in the blockbuster is a bit weaker than its predecessors, but we still have to give credit to the climactic battle on the torch of the Statue of Liberty. The fight between Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Tyler Mane’s Sabertooth is definitely the highlight, but credit is also due for having each core member of the team contribute to the mission with their own special gifts.
