    Wanda easily, have you seen Dark Phoenix?

    No, kinda gave up on the x-men films.

    Don’t. Worse than grinding arena
    So literal hell. I will stay well clear then.
    No matter anyones opinion of the plot or certain characters Mcavoy and Fassbender (Prof X and magneto) are absolutely amazing in all of them with some beautiful moments together. Not to mention the quicksilver scenes which while brief steal the show and are in my mind the best speedster scenes ever put in any comic movie.

    But they have flaws certainly ill adamantly say that 2/4 best x men movies (first class and days of future past) are from the new cast/movies along with logan and x2
    McAvoy and Fassbender are the standouts. Everyone else is really forgettable. Jessica Chastains character (the entire species really) is stupid, and Mystiques death is... just kinda there. And sidelining Evan Peters? Bad idea.
    First Class and DOFP were actually pretty good Apocalypse was decent (should of been way better), dark phoenix was terrible. But I'm going to assume we are talking about comics in which case Phoenix takes the W.

    I personally don't feel that we can compare the movie versions of these characters as they are 2 totally separate franchises (or were before Disney bought Fox). The Fox movies have taken severe liberties in their depictions of the X-men while the MCU is much closer to the source material. So we have yet to see what a MCU Phoenix/Jean Grey would be capable of.

    So the only place that I feel they can be compared is in the comics themselves. And even then that's a tough one to tackle as there have been so many different incarnations and power levels of both characters. But if it's Jean Grey with the full on Phoenix Force, I'd have to give it to her, as she is a Cosmic entity who has consumed an entire star system just for the pleasure of doing it.

    Look. There is a problem here. Phoenix is a higher level cosmic being and is supposed to be one of the most powerful in the marvel universe. But she has a weakness. In A vs X comic it is shown that scarlet witch is resistant to the phoenix and can hurt the host of the phoenix due to her chaos magic. And in the end of the comic this happens:


    It's not that she's more powerful than phoenix. She is not. But the nature of her powers makes Phoenix susceptible against her.

    First Class is my favorite X-Men film. Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix were okay mainly because of the actors.

    Quality wise xmen films go like this:
    1. Deadpool
    2. Logan
    3. Deadpool 2
    4. Xmen first class
    5. X2
    6. Xmen days of future past
    7. X1
    8. The Wolverine
    9. Xmen apocalypse
    10. X3
    11. Xmen origins wolverine
    12. Xmen dark phoenix

    The difference of quality between 8 and 9 is huge. I would recommend every marvel fan to watch the first 8 movies.
    The last 4 are utter piece of trash.

    I honestly think White Phoenix of The Crown and Scarlet Witch House of M are on equal grounds, but I honestly don't know much about the comics

    No nodes or additional abilities, outside of the base one's?

    It would likely be Scarlet Witch.
    Not only she has class advantage, but she can also nullify Phoenix fury buffs, as well as applying power locks here and there in order to keep her power control.
    And while being hit, she could end up applying poison debuffs to Phoenix, which she isn't immune to. Is kinda of a defensive ability going on favor of SW here, while Phoenix doesn't have too much going on for her defensively.

    Well I don’t need to watch the film now. I knew shouldn’t have just started scrolling. Shame no more Jlaw

    You gotta watch apocalypse for two things;
    Micheal Fassbender and Evan Peters. That mansion scene is perfection.

    There's two versions? I don't know which one I've seen then. I think I've only seen the one on Disney+

    Watching the whole movie for those scenes is a pain. I would recommend only watching these scenes instead of the whole movie.

    Nope, there’s only one version, where you don’t see much. Could’ve been so much cooler...

    Since the discussion has turned to X-men movies, I’ve recently seen DoFP and Apoc on D+ And enjoyed them both. Are there any others I should watch sometime (and an order in which to watch them; I have no clue what the timeline is based on the titles)?

    Honestly, if you liked those ones, I would watch the whole series in order.
    I believe it goes:
    X Men
    X2
    X3 (don’t remember the name, but 3rd original sequel)
    First Class
    DoFP
    AoA
    Dark Phoenix
    That’s the ones I remember, could be missing a few. I also highly recommend Logan. It wasn’t well received, but I thought it was an awesome Wolverine movie.
    Logan has an 8.1 imdb rating and 90% rottentomatoes score so I wouldn’t say it wasn’t well received. Even when it came out, everyone I knew and on the forums loved it so much. In my opinion, it’s the best X-Men movie out of all.

    For phoenix force, destroying universes is like blowing seeds off a dandellion. It is probably in top5 most powerful Marvel beings (I dont insist on top 5 tho, but it is really high on the list).

    Now, it depends on the state of its wielder, lets consider Jean Grey:

    Phoenix - would be a tough fight, but I believe SW would emerge victorious

    Dark Phoenix - I would call it a tie, SW's only chance of winning would be to have insanely precise control over her abilities. That might theoretically give SW a chance of winning

    White Phoenix - not a chance. This Phoenix would wipe the floor w SW.


    Also, idk how much can SW survive in space? Because Phoenix I am pretty sure can.

    One interesting thing about scarlet witch is that she doesn't have control over her abilities. In house of m she went insane using her reality warping powers.

    Wanda is known as a nexus being and has the ability to reshape reality. If we are talking comics Wanda at full potential then it’s no question

    Scarlet witch has the power to bend reality to her will, and correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t she already kill her with the whole “no more mutants” thing? I’m sure the answer will differ between different storylines and different ways you look at the question, but this is my opinion.

    Sw said no more mutants, and then she removed most mutants. she could just say "no more phoenix", and phoenix loses automatically

    THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. She said those exact words and did exactly that.
