It worked for Avengers, because it was something new to the viewers and releasing superhero movies in 2008 to 2012 weren't so risky anymore.
Do you think really think if Fox released a Wolverine/Jean/Cyclops/Storm solo movie in 2000s, those films would have been so successful and it would have led to X-Men team-up? Comic-book movies weren't even that accessible in the early 2000s. We only had Superman/Batman movies during the 80s/90s. The others weren't so successful. Blade had its success in 1998 but like as if people viewed that a comic-book film.
X-Men aren't exactly similar to the Avengers and the Justice League. Even in the comics, they aren't.
