XMFC was Vaughn. Singer contributed a little to the script, but that's it.
In any case, the first X-Men movie was the one that single-handedly launched the era of Marvel movies. (Blade doesn't count, because even today, there's plenty of general audiences that don't have a clue that he's even a Marvel character. Blade got popular because of "zomg vampires!" in the height of the vampire movie era.)
