In the case of the Fox films, I would argue that their quality has a lot to do with their box office performance. The X franchise has been chugging along for over a dozen years with many installments but it has never caught fire, despite being based on some of the most popular comic books in history. In contrast, Iron Man shot to A-list status with a character whom many derided as a D-list hero nobody other than geeks knew about. Iron Man/Tony Stark is now more popular and recognized than Wolverine, who was long touted as Marvel's second most popular character behind Spider-Man. The difference between the Iron Man and the X-Men films is quality, plain and simple.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
