X-Men: 5 worst performances from Fox’s Marvel franchise

1 of 5

‘X-Men’ Premiere on July 12, 2000 in Nyc

Through 18 years of movies, which were some of the worst performances in the history of Fox’s X-Men franchise?

Fox’s X-Men franchise has been known as the lesser of the Marvel movie franchises. Some of the stories have been good, but the characters haven’t represented the characters well. Some of the performances the actors just flat out did a bad job. However, sometimes the actors did a good a job with the bad material they were given. Vinnie Jones couldn’t help that the script and costume for Juggernaut were bad. Meanwhile, Tyler Mane could have been better given more lines than, “Scream for me” and “GROWL!” This is a list of Fox Marvel characters that just didn’t hit the mark.

5. Rogue (Anna Paquin)

Anna Paquin’s Rogue was one of the first performances I thought of. She hit the trifecta of being bad. A poor representation of the character, putting on a bad performance, and also not being memorable.

Rogue isn’t forgettable. She has been one of the most popular X-Men for as long as she’s been around. Her never-say-quit attitude and southern charm is something that was sorely lacking from the movie.

Rogue was an insecure child. She may have been scared of her powers, but she wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. Even when she didn’t have her super strength.

The part that sticks out the most is the ending of X-Men 3: The Last Stand. She gave up her powers to be with Iceman. After everything that she went through, she proves that she isn’t down for the cause.

Rogue has had relapses where she has wanted to be normal, but that moment showed that all of her time as an X-Man was for nothing. She didn’t learn that her powers weren’t a curse and took the easy way out while the rest of the students stayed. The alternate ending where she kept her powers is the better conclusion.
