With Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are hoping to see the Mutants enter into the comic book film franchise. Marvel Studios execs have been hinting about the X-Men, but so far, no concrete plans have been announced. Whatever the case may be, I decided to list my Top 10 X-Men Stories For Movie Adaptions.
Schism – Cyclops and Wolverine have a falling out after M Day. As a result, Wolverine starts the Jean Grey School for Mutants.
Asteroid M – Magneto builds a new place for mutants to live away from Earth. Unfortunately, he is betrayed from within his own ranks.
House of M – Scarlet Witch alters reality where Magneto has conquered North America. Wolverine somehow realizes something is amiss and recruits a combination of the Avengers and X-Men to stop them.
Onslaught – After Professor X mentally attacks Magneto, he somehow absorbs his evil personality. Though Prof. X manages to expel the entity, it becomes known as Onslaught and leads a vicious assault on New York until he is stopped by the Hulk and the entirety of the Avengers.
Spider-Man and the X-Men – Peter Parker becomes a substitute teacher at the Jean Grey School for Mutants, but he’s secretly there to locate a traitor within the ranks of the students.
Mutant X/Proteus – Unrelated to the mutant show on the WB (RIP), Moira MacTaggert’s powerful Mutant son begins to cause suffering on their home of Muir Island with his reality altering powers. She calls for the X-Men for help.
Operation: Zero Tolerance – After the death of a presidential candidate is blamed on mutants, the government re-institutes the Sentinel program to battle the X-Men.
Mojo Vision – An alien from an alternate dimension, Mojo kidnaps the X-Men and forces them to fight in gladiator-style games in order to survive.

Phalanx Covenant – An alien race of cyborgs come to Earth and infect a group of Mutant-haters, allowing them to go toe-to-toe with the X-Men.
