Wolverine has been one of the most popular X-Men characters since he was introduced in the comics in 1974, but his fame skyrocketed when he first seen played by Hugh Jackman in 2000. Since the, he’s become one of pop culture’s most prominent superheroes, and 16 years after the first X-Men movie came out, Jackman is still going strong as the character. Unfortunately for fans of Jackman’s portrayal, his time as Wolverine is about to wrap up.

Hugh Jackman is reprising Wolverine one last time next year in Wolverine 3, but last week, it was confirmed that he’ll appear in X-Men: Apocalypse in a small, but crucial, role. With Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine winding down, we’ve decided to rank his appearances as the clawed mutant from worst to best going by how well he was used in each movie. That means every covering X-Men-related movie that’s been released so far except for Deadpool. That said, we will give an honorable mention for Wade Wilson not only commenting about fondling Wolverine’s "nice pair of criminals down unda’," but also taping a People Magazine cutout of Hugh Jackman’s face under his mask.

Don’t get us wrong, we loved Wolverine’s cameo in X-Men: First Class. Since a PG-13 movie is only allowed one f-bomb (maybe two if they’re lucky), that needs to be used wisely, and it doesn’t get much better than Wolverine telling Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr to go fuck themselves when they try to recruit him for their team. It was a clever way of getting him to interact with them without screwing up the continuity of their meeting in X-Men. However, Wolverine is only in X-Men: First Class for less than a minute, and while it was great to see him, that small of a cameo doesn’t trump a whole movie. That’s fine, because X-Men: First Class was never supposed to be Wolverine-centric. This was just a fun nod towards the franchise’s main character.
