The X-Men franchise has seen its iconic comic book characters translate into some classic and beloved video games over the years. With the peak popularity of the X-Men comics and hit movie trilogy in the 1990s and early 2000s, we got to experience Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, and other popular mutants in a variety of great game adaptations across both platforms and genres. From the arcade classic X-Men in 1992 to more modern titles like the action RPG X-Men Legends series in the 2000s, video games have allowed fans to step into the shoes of their favorite mutant heroes and connect with these characters outside of the movies and comics.
Now, with Insomniac Games' upcoming Marvel's Wolverine title bringing the promise of an original story showcasing Logan's signature berserker rage, the future is bright for the iconic mutants to deliver blockbuster comic book action as only video games can.
