Default X-Men First Class v.s Captain America TFA

Which was better? Both were set in the past, are based on Marvel characters and were released in 2011.

For me it's First Class easily.

This is quite tough for me, as I think First Class is better in places but also shoddy in others. Think Cap edges it out for consistency.

X-Men First Class. It does a lot of little things better so this isn't a particularly close battle, but two main things in particular stand out in X-Men's favor.

1) The Villain - Red Skull is a cookie-cutter take over the world type that we've seen a hundred times. Shaw is a real character with believable motives, and ironically who's philosophy is more in line with the Nazis than Skull's is. He also seemed like more of a real threat, and his smugness made him easy to hate. I know I was cheering when Magneto put that coin through his brain.

2) The Last Act - Captain America really kind of falls apart as a film as soon as he actually becomes a real hero. There is a montage of him doing stuff and he saves the world and blah, blah, blah but it loses its emotional connection right up until the point when Cap is sacrificing himself by flying the plane into the ice. First Class doesn't miss a beat and its final act is easily the most satisfying of the entire X-Men film franchise.

Anyways, it is an easy victory for X-Men First Class.

Shaw was also a proto-Magneto, but even more extreme. Magneto wasn't actually trying to wipe out humanity as a whole until the end of X2, and that was because of the abuse that he suffered at the hands of Stryker and Stryker's trying to exterminate all Mutants.

Right.

The main difference I see between Shaw and Magneto (especially how McKellen plays him), is that Magneto seems to regret what he's doing. He doesn't want to kill all of humanity, but he is driven to the point where he feels that he has no other choice if mutants are to survive. Shaw simply views ordinary humans as a blight on the world that needs to be eradicated.

X-Men First Class was a solid flick, but it served to muddle even further the X- Men continuity and didn't devote nearly enough time, in my opinion, to the actual New Class. Cap was sweetly old fashioned and scores a victory on points thanks to the wonderful "Star Spangled Banner Man" montage.

I enjoyed FC,but I've always thought it was a bit overrated by the masses.Cap is easily more re-watchable.Very old school action and adventure fun.

As a whole First Class.

Cap is a solid flick though, and I enjoy the action more there as well as how they handled the time period. Im a sucker for the 40's setting. Johnston handled that well.

No contest here, X-Men: First Class. Captain America is my least favorite of the MCU films and the most overrated.

Easily X-Men: First Class. It all around a better movie with the better story, cast, and action.

First Class is better by a considerable margin.

Captain America. First Class had a couple really good aspects, notably everything to do with Erik Lehnsherr, but overall, Captain America held together better as a story.

Captain America is maybe closer to the comics, but as a movie, First Class is way better. Its also more entertaining, it had a better lead villain, the story was less predictable and it had more depth. Captain America was very predictable and the lead actor was just very bland for the role.

Evans was a near perfect Steve Rogers. Cap isn't a bad boy type like iron man. He is supposed to be sorta bland

Chris Evans is lacking in charisma and I don't find him believable in the role.

I like Evans as cap but the avengers did better with Cap than his solo film did.
