Logan, TDK, TWS, and DoFP are a tier above anything else here... now whichever you choose is the best out of those 4 i understand but it should be those 4.

Why, why can't other people have their own opinion?

@firstfirmament: I just thought it was pure garbage. What a s--t way to send Wolverine out. They could have gone so much bigger and better. The ending where he "dies" I know a lot of people were saying it was emotional and they were crying, etc, but for me, it was just a massive eye roller. All of a sudden his healing powers aren't working....again? A tree branch was ultimately the fatal blow?! The whole retarded "Adamantium bullet can pierce Adamantium" BS they carried over from the godawful XMEN Origins. Etc. It was just so freaking silly and lame. I didn't find it satisfying at all on any level. I thought it was pretty much trash through and through.

If you liked it, or anyone else, that's totally fine, I just don't understand how.

Still Dark Knight, then Logan.

Honorable mentions to Spider-Man 2/Spider-Verse/Watchmen/First Class and DoFP/Black Panther/MoS and BvS UE. Certain pieces of other movies are great too.

@goldking: That actually makes sense.

However, in comic book movies, I tend not to focus on the 'how'. I mean, most things shouldn't make sense.

Still, it's a valid point.

To be honest, the vast majority of the movies mentioned in the OP are, while entertaining of course, rather average as movies.

For me, the best ones are X-Men 2, V for Vendetta, Logan, Winter Soldier and Infinity War.

@firstfirmament Your list is missing lots and lots of comic book movies. You've only listed the really most recent and popular.

Watchmen/Logan/First Class/Sin City/Avengers (for the effect it had)

BvS UC and CW are almost there too, but they had some flaws that hold them back.

The best is likely TDK (Heath Ledger > your opinion,) but my favorite is IW.
