But in terms of quality storytelling and themes... Fox X-men, X2 and FC are superior than most Marvel movies.
I don't think it's fair to pick on the "theme" of the Marvel movies... The entire X-Men franchise was created with a very specific theme in mind. A lot of the other Marvel characters weren't. They're superheroes. That's their theme. And even then, X1 and X2 weren't nearly as true to the characters as anything that Marvel has cranked out.
