34. “X-Men” (July 14, 2000) Director Bryan Singer (“The Usual Suspects,” “Apt Pupil”) brings the team to the big screen and a level of box-office success that jump-starts superhero cinema and launches a still-going film franchise. Professor X (Patrick Stewart, front) leads new recruit Wolverine (Hugh Jackman, back left) and a team that includes Cyclops (James Marsden), Storm (Halle Berry) and Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) against Magneto (Ian McKellen) and his allies in a plot that involves a Mutant Registration Act and a mutation-causing device. What’s cooler – the battle at the Statue of Liberty or that closing chess match between old friends Xavier and Magneto? (Attila Dory / 20th Century Fox)
