Feeling Meme-ish: X-Men

Though first introduced in 1963, the X-Men really gained a hold on the popular imagination with the new X-Men of Chris Claremont (and Dave Cockrum and John Byrne) during the 1970s. It hasn’t let go since. On film, the X-Men franchise can be summarized as “Meh.” (Though exciting at the time because it was the first film effort.) “Good!” “Oh god, make it stop!” “This is better!” and, “Yeah, that’s more like it!” (We’re ignoring Wolverine’s solo films in this scientific evaluation.) But highs and lows of this particular cinematic track record aside, the films brought the X-Men to the world, and the world has responded … via ye ol’ meme generator! With the age of X-Men: Apocalypse upon us, let’s see what’s out there, shall we?
