What happens when a toad gets struck by lightning vs Doom on a surfboard. Vote for the best comic film!

Didn't hate FF2, but don't think it's as good as X-Men (which wasn't too great either IMO).

X-Men is maybe the only comic movie ever to improve the comics it was based on. The positive influence of that movie gave us better X comics than we had seen in almost a decade. It gets my vote for that reason alone.

Only saw FF II once. X-Men stands out more for me.

This is tough. I really think the X-Men movie is mostly crap, while the FF movie is mostly good. . . BUT, the good of X-Men is better than the good of FF, and the crap of FF is worse than the crap of X-Men.

Let's see, X-Men is similar to Batman (89) in the respect that it was great at the time and elevated the whole genre, but hasn't aged well.

FF 2 - is very claustrophobic and grounded movie for such a potentially expansive and epic story. The Silver Surfer parts are very cool.

Ultimately I have to give it to X-Men.

I like both, but I give it to F42.

FF2 wasn't even in the same ballpark as XMEN. Besides the few Surfer scences FF2 is a total loss.

Eh, I don't think either of them are that good. But as an experience, I think I enjoyed FF2 just a little more than X-Men.

Too bad about Silver Surfer, but X-Men was just a better movie. Didn't have the action, but it had the writing, the performances, and the spirit.

I only liked the first half hour or so of X-Men but it was still better than EITHER FF film.

I like X-men Better then FF2 hands down.

FF2 was a whole lot of fun, pure and simple.

X-Men was a good start. A pretty good movie that SHOULD have launched a phenomenal franchise instead of one great sequel and an abomination.

I'm going with the fun rather than the launching pad. FF2.

There was less wrong with X-Men then there was right with FF4: 2. Gotta give it to the muties on this one.

FF2 was a huge improvement over the first FF, and X-Men is my least favorite of the X-films (yes, I like the third more), but X-Men still wins.
