Personality versus team spirit.. tough choice..
Going with 'X-Men' as it was a very solid first entry and I dislike some parts of the first 'Spider-Man' film.
Both are great first films, but I think Spidey just edges out the X-Men here. Just. And I might change my mind if I watched them again. Now, X2 vs. Spidey 2...? Then I'd have a REAL fight on my hands....
Two great battles from Marvel. The team work is better of the spidy work.
X-Men. I like them better...
Two of the great comic books movies. X-men is the better comic but Spider-Man is definitely the better movie.
A story's strength lies in its villain, and both Ian McKellan and Willem Dafoe were both excellent. "X-Men" was rewarding, but "Spider-Man" was fulfilling.
I like X-men as a franchise better, and X2 is my favorite overall in the super-hero movies. But between the Origins its a tough one.
Man. This is a tough one.
X-Men absolutely. The better film and comic book.
I don't know about the comic book but Spider-man is a better film.
The first Spider-Man is probably the best superhero movie so far.
Wow. Two solid entries for two great superheroes/team of superheroes. I really have no idea, since both spawned great sequels and terrible threequels.
X-Men. Hands down, cock sure, without doubt... Saturday morning and comic books, the nostalgia is terminal.
Time hasn't been very nice to either, but I think I like Spider-Man better.
Bryan's X-Men has held up a bit better over the last decade than Raimi's Spiderman. It's not quite as over the top and takes itself a bit more seriously.
I think Spider-Man takes this one. Both movies were essentially platforms for their next installments (which were exponentially better), but Spider-Man has a stronger story and better character development.
JRM is right about neither of these movies aging very well, but I do think Spider-Man is the more impressive of the two.
hard decision but my vote goes to Spider-Man

I agree with JRM, neither of these two movies have aged into timeless blockbusters, and fall short when compared to their sequels. X-Men is pretty weak in some areas, I haven't seen it in sometime, so Spider-Man it is.
I'm not a fan of the first three X-Men.
I'll have to go with X-Men as the Spider-Man trilogy did nothing for me...
The battle to see which movie based on my favorite comic book characters disappointed me less. X-Men ends up winning because, well...no Tobey Maguire.
