The problem is they havnt focused on the team aspect enough or have many characters participating in battle or doing anything useful in the 5 films they have been given. X Men should be about the team not just one or two characters on a team.
Well, we have seen them fight in team formation in X1, X3 and XMFC, I think the lack of team formation fighting could be down to budget, most of X3's budget went into completing the film's sfx in time, X1 had it's budget cut during filming, X2 did not get the required budget to have the finale Singer wanted(with human sized sentinals).
But XMFC did pretty well with it's team finale, esp given it's somewhat rushed production time.
Until Avengers came along, I thought XMFC had the most satisfying thrid act action finale of any superhero film.
