A little over two months ago I began my marathon heading to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and that meant I had a LOT to watch.
It began with the animated X-Men series which I watched all the way until about halfway through Season 3. That was an interesting ride with a lot of storylines that were quite fascinating, specifically the Phoenix storylines with Jean Grey. That was intense.
Then I got into the X-Men movies while tackling the MCU films I needed to watch too. That was a lot to finish but it was a super fun ride.
It was my first time watching all of the X-Men movies in a marathon fashion so it definitely provided quite the perspective. Such as the rebooted X-Men movies starting with First Class are way better than the first three X-Men films. Michael Fassbender’s Magneto is the undoubted MVP of those films, from his mesmerizing swagger to his constantly tragic storyline, Magneto is my favorite X-Men character and I don’t think that’s ever going to change.
X-Men: Days of Future Past and First Class were really fun but surprisingly X-Men: Apocalypse, despite its flaws, had me quite invested this time around. Magneto’s story is so heartbreaking in that movie.
It was, however, the final four installments in my marathon that were an utter blast to watch.Continue reading I Finished My Marvel Marathon!
