1. "Just because someone stumbles and loses their way, it doesn't mean they're lost forever. Sometimes, we all need a little help." – X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) 

2. "A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world." – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) 

3. Don't let it control you. – X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 

4. Professor X: "Logan, my tolerance for your smoking in the mansion notwithstanding, continue smoking that in here, and you'll spend the rest of your days under the belief that you're a six-year-old girl." 

Wolverine: "You'd do that?" 

Professor X: "I'd have Jean braid your hair." – X2 (2003) 

5. "I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul that comes to my school looking for trouble." – X-Men (2000) 

6. "There's so much more to you than you know, not just pain and anger. There's good in you too, and you can harness all that. You have a power that no one can match, not even me." – X: First Class (2011) 

7. "Welcome to my world!" – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) 

8. "Give him an order worth following. He'll take it." – X-Men (2000) 

9. "It's not their pain you're afraid of. It's yours, Charles. And as frightening as it can be, that pain will make you stronger. If you allow yourself to feel it, embrace it, it will make you more powerful than you ever imagined. It's the greatest gift we have: to bear their pain without breaking. And it comes from the most human part of us: hope." – X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) 

10. "We have it in us to be the better men." – X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 

11. "Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet, debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain or simply a new species of humanity fighting for their share of the world? Either way it is a historical fact: Sharing the world has never been humanity's defining attribute." – X2 (2003) 

12. "Unleash your power! Let go, Jean! Jean, let it go!" – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) 

13. "I'm looking for hope." – X-Men (2000) 

14. "The conflict between the better and worst angels of our very nature, whose outcome will change our world so greatly there will be no going back. I do not know if victory is possible. I only know that great sacrifice will be required. And because the fate of many will depend on a few, we must make the last stand." – X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 

15. "Mankind is not evil, just uninformed." – X-Men (2000) 

16. "I suppose I am a professor now. Pretty soon I'll be going bald." – X: First Class (2011) 

17. "You will never win because you are alone and I am not." – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) 

18. Prof. Charles Xavier: [to Class] "When an individual acquires great power, the use or misuse of that power is everything. Will it be used for the greater good? Or will it be used for personal or for destructive ends? Now this is a question we must all ask ourselves. Why? Because we are mutants." 
Kitty Pryde: "But Einstein said that ethics are an exclusive human concern, without any superhuman authority behind it." 
Prof. Charles Xavier: "Einstein wasn't a mutant, so far as we know." – X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 

19. "A new species is being born. Help me guide it, shape it, lead it." – X: First Class (2011) 

20. "This message is for one reason alone: to tell the strongest among you. Those with the greatest power protect those without. That's my message to the world." – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) 

21. "Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward." – X-Men (2000) 

22. "Alex, destroy Cerebro! Wreak havoc!" – X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) 

23. "You of all people know how fast the weather can change." – X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 

24. "And I will always be there, old friend." – X-Men (2000) 

25. "The past: a new and uncertain world. A world of endless possibilities and infinite outcomes. Countless choices define our fate: each choice, each moment, a moment in the ripple of time. Enough ripples, and you can change the tide here. For the future is never truly set." – X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) 

26. Logan: "Someone will come along!" 

Charles Xavier: "Someone has come along." – Logan (2017) 

27.  "This is what life looks like: people love each other. You should take a moment."  – Logan (2017)

LD, you're a gem! You did what I thought was impossible: this poll makes me what to see the X-Men movies and this poll and that little girl, Laura, who I learned about from you, make me want to see Logan. Plus, I want to see a few of the other superhero movies now mostly because of your polls.

I've been one of those people suffering from superhero fatigue even though I haven't seen a superhero movie since Spiderman 3, which I thought was quite good. I just couldn't keep track of all of them, lol.
