Avengers are currently the it superhero team but a decade ago the X-Men were the first superhero team to slay the box office (and their comics have always been more popular than any Avengers comics)

 

Did the Avengers surpass the X-Men as the most iconic superhero team?

Can't wait for the MCU crossover movies in the 2020s :fan:

X Men had it a few years way back, the 90s/00s cartoons also helped that as well but the movies were just so-so. Avengers outsold, outfranchised, outtoysed, outsequeled, outcartooned, outcasted and outlasted Xmen in all categories including gifs. It's all due to he actors chemistry tbh. Avengers surpassed immensely, even other franchises, it's only competitor rn is GOT not Xmen. People are pumped for both on April. It's crazy.

The major factor of the Avengers success were really the actors tho, stats wise. but I gotta admit the interesting characters are in the X-men.

X-Men was the first IT team but the mediocre movies really damaged their appeal while the exact opposite happened for the Avengers, their hit movies made their popularity and icon status SKYROCKET. 

 

Marvel has the X-Men back now so it remains to be seen whether they can undo the damage done to the X-Brand (or if they even want to). I'm skeptical but open to being proven wrong.

X-Men ***** on Avengers :chick2:

And folks, there you have it.  Not to mention, X3 being the best of the franchise, too, but don’t @ me on that.

X-Men of course :alexz:They have the highest selling coming book ever, have more iconic storylines(Phoenix Saga Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse) and more iconic villains :foxaylove2:

 

 There's a reason Marvel sold the rights to Spider-Man and X-Men when they went bankrupt.  They will surpass the Avengers again once they start making appearances in the MCU. Won’t be surprised if the next Avenger movie is  the AvX story line.

x-men, obviously

 

even in just the film category, x2 is better than any avengers movie, not to mention how much more iconic the comic books are
