TOUGH

on 7/7/2009

Spidey 2 all the way!

on 7/8/2009

X-Men over Spider Man. Always.

on 7/16/2009

I gotta agree with MateoU2. Especially the second installments. X2 over Spidey 2 any day of the week.

on 9/2/2009

The right answer is that any Spider-man will be better than any X-men movie. Always. Forever. Period. .

on 10/1/2009

This is tough. They're both the best movies in their respective franchises and, along with Iron Man, the best Marvel movies to date. But I think I have to give X2 the edge....

on 10/21/2009

Spider-Man? No way will that outdo X-Men for me! Keep in mind, people, that X2 has Ian McKellen!

WHAT NO WAY IMPOSSIBLE ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE

"X2" is the best of the "X-Men" franchise, and an excellent sequel. I absolutely HATED "Spidey 2": half the movie was P.Parker moping like Owen Wilson in "Wedding Crashers." No contest.

Wow, the battle of two of the best comic sequels.

on 2/22/2010

Both fantastic sequels sure, but X2 has a certian special quality to it and everyone in the cast is excellent. Not sure I can say the same for Spider-Man so it loses....

Talking only Superhero movies this battle is My no. 1 vs My No. 2 I'll go with my no. 1 of course... X2: X-men United.

on 2/26/2010

Spider-Man 2 is such a great film, that even the black hole of acting talent that is Kirsten Dunst can't stop it from beating the X-Men.

on 2/26/2010

My three favorite comic book films are all sequels (with Iron Man definitely vying for a spot). The Dark Knight slaughters both of these, but it's not their fault. Also not their fault that their threequels both have major issues. As a Trekkie and a Lord of the Rings fan, I love Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. Maybe that's why I prefer X2....

Among the best superhero movies. X2 is a little better, imo. It has a great cast, plot,and some serious memorable moments.

on 5/31/2010

Two amazing sequels that both surpassed their originals. Tough choice, but Spider-Man 2 wins out. Definitely the best "pure" superhero film.

Spider-man 2 was an excellent sequel and easily wins here.,

on 8/7/2010

Spider-man 2 was way, WAY better than both its predecessor and any of the X-Men movies. I honestly have no idea what anyone is talking about when they say that X2 was "more memorable", since I cannot remember a single thing from that movie other than the groan-worthy scene where one of the mutant's mom equates being a mutant with being gay. That, and the annoying she-wolverine character. SPIDER-MAN 2 FTW.

None of the X-Men movies have been good. First Class is the first one that approaches some of the complexity of the comic. Spidey 2 captured the essence of Peter Parker perfectly and is still my favorite comic book movie. Sorry Dark Knight.

Nutters.

on 7/13/2011

X2 was good enough. Never impressed with any of the Spider Man movies....

on 8/6/2011

Spider-Man 2 is the better of the three Spidey flicks in my opinion. Great story, great villain, and no wasted time. It wins.

on 8/30/2011

X2 wasn't flawless, but it definitely had the better script and overall performances. Tobey never really resonated with me as Spiderman. So, X2 for Marvel's best sequel film.

on 2/6/2012

Sorry Peter, go back to your room.

on 4/14/2012

Spider-man II it is.I hate X-Men.

on 5/24/2012

Spider-Man 2 had it's share of corny moments, but X2 just never really stuck out to me. It was sort of..., forgettable. So Spidey wins.

on 8/14/2012

X2 is amazing and has my favorite character Wolverine so I vote for it

on 11/18/2012

Spiderman 2 without a doubt. I loved the dark, dismal world view in X1, but it got tiresome in this one.

on 1/27/2013

.Spiderman 2 is better then 1and 3 and it;s a pretty good film over all.But like x2 a little better.

on 2/6/2013

Old school greatness here. I'm glad Singer's X-Men kept the school in session whereas Raimi was three and out.

on 9/29/2013

I say X2 is better

spider 2

X2 definitleyy

on 2/14/2014

Both are certainly in my top 10 superhero films, and they're both sequels that improve on the concepts and ideas of their predecessors. However, quality-wise, X2 is the winner.

on 3/23/2014

and x-2 wins

on 3/25/2014

Both are groundbreaking sequels but I've always preferred Spider-Man 2.

on 4/7/2014

I didn't respond nearly as favorably to either of these as most viewers did. I was underwhelmed by X2, where I was actually annoyed by SPIDER-MAN 2. Underwhelmed > annoyed.

on 4/9/2014

Two great Marvel movies that succeeds over the first I'm going with Spider Man 2

on 4/9/2014

Both have terrible number 3s they have a lot in common

on 2/9/2015

X2 is excellent film, but Spider Man 2 is high quality

on 3/22/2015

X2 is a very good movie, but Spider-Man 2 is up there with my favorite superhero movies.

on 4/4/2015

Spider against X

on 10/7/2015

Two of my favorite Marvel movies (along with Winter Soldier). X2 had more going on plotwise, and was especially impressive in that it never became bloated or convoluted. But I felt Spidermna-2 had more going on under the surface, and definitely more heart. I'm going Spidey this time.

on 10/7/2015

Spiderman 2

on 7/23/2016

Spidey Wins
