X-Men

The X-Men movies are some of the best films ever made. So many philosophical questions are covered in the series. For example, what laws, if any, should be passed for people considered superior to others? Should people who are different be controlled in any way? If so, how? To what extent do others without unique characteristics have to bend to accommodate a minority with special traits? I could continue ad infinitum. Here's one of my favorite scenes, from X-Men 2:

Storm: Sometimes anger can help you survive.
Nightcrawler: So can faith.

For whatever reason, this exchange is electrifying in the film.
