Magneto paralyzing Xavier is muted (rightfully and brilliantly so) because Charles doesn't let Erik or Raven know how bad he's hurt.

Some underrated understated moments...

I think Storm's eulogy for Charles in X3 is the saddest and most emotional moment of the series. That really packs a punch especially when you splice in the young children stunned and crying.

I also think the ending to Origins Wolverine is quite unique and emotional. Logan's true love left unmourned.

first class beach scene for me. I find Xavier's death in last stand to be more WTF than sad. It had no weight to it. he just shattered. it was weird lol. I hated the way phoenix killed people in that film, they just went poof and were gone. it was like when you kill a guard in a video game.

A tie between:
Rogue's "death scene" atop the Statue of Liberty
and
Jean's sacrifice at Alkali Lake

First Class beach scene.

I also find Jean's sacrifice in X2 very moving, though it's marred for me a teensy little bit by 1) Marsden's acting - I have no major problems with it elsewhere but here it just feels fake and weak and threatens to pull me out of the scene; and 2) the reaction of Wolverine and Cyclops - an attempt at bonding-through-grief that, again, didn't work for me.

Cyclops being killed off broke my heart. So it's definitely the saddest moment in the franchise for me.

Charles getting paralyzed. The way the music just stops; the world slows down. You know what it means before the characters do. And then when Charles realizes that he can't feel his legs and just starts saying it over and over...heart-breaking.

Jean "dying" at the end of X2 was also tragic, except it made no damn sense. If she could magically get the jet to spark back to life...why didn't she just stay in the jet in the first place? And why, oh why, did she have to leave the jet to hold back the water??? She has telekinesis! No sacrifice required!

X3, by itself, was tragic. It was like everyone decided that, because it's the third and final movie, it's okay to just aimlessly kill off all the characters to create "drama." That's not how you create drama. Your characters can't go through conflict if they're dead!

For me Jean's sacrifice in X2 is still the saddest moment in the franchise. As someone else said, that last look she gives her friends before she leaves the plane just gets me everytime, and the rest of the scene I feel sad as well.

Also thought the acting in that scene was brilliant unlike some others on here. And UI thought the scene made sense, Jean left the plane because, as Xavier said, she was always hesitant about her powers, which indicates to me she wasnt confident enough to stop the water without blowing the front of the X-Jet off, which would have really put them all in the ****.

FC adds some great moments though, Magneto's mother dying, Magneto's memory induced by Charles, Charles being paralysed and saying repeatedly he couldnt feel his legs, Mystique's reaction to the bullet hitting Charles and probably a few others I cant think of.

I thought it was already common knowledge, atleast with fans of the movie series, that Jean's powers were messing up with the jet, that's why she had to step outside.

I guess I am the outlier on this one, I always thought there was a remarkable sadness and coldbloodness in the final interaction between Magneto and Mystique after she gets the cure.

Especially with XMFC making Mystique more relateable, that whole scene carries a whole new weight if you watch that scene over again. I voted for that.

Well yeah thats what I meant, her powers were affecting the plane, also Cyclops says just before Jean walks out "We need some type of external power." Another reason why she left the plane was to be that external power to get the plane moving, and also as I said she didnt have enough faith in her powers to not blow the front of the plane off while stopping the water.

You know, despite hating X3, I have to agree that FC does add more power to that scene, I now appreciate it a lot more.

I wouldn't describe it as sad exactly (because it mostly just makes me furious), but Magneto abandoning Mystique in X3 to me feels like the cruellest thing anyone's done to anyone in this series.

The Erik/Xavier memory scene/moving of satellite dish in FC is easily the saddest.

I must admit to feeling emotion at Storm's reading of the eulogy in X3 but the emotion isn't anywhere near that of the satellite dish sequence.

I felt nothing at the death of Jean in X2, it just doesn't move me at all, it seems to fall flat.

When Singer left and Ratner took over the director's seat.... EASILY the saddest moment in the Xmen franchise.

There are so many I think almost all Rogues moments in X1 especially when she breaks down to Logan about "the first boy I ever kissed" and how she feels alone.

Storm's one very emotional moment and worth a mention was the one where she tells Nightcrawler how truely angry she is and he tells her "someone so beautiful should not be so angry" so it ends kind of sweet.

But all kind of pall in comparison to Jean's sacrafice because everyone knew how momentous the sacrafice was and what it represented and how it signified her rise in the next film and that nothing would ever be the same.

(Sidenote: They never answered why she left the Blackbird in X2 in X3 yet another missed opportunity in that film)
