We've already had four X-Men flicks, but that could be just the beginning.

As we get ready for the second solo Wolverine flick and the fifth team X-Men film in Days of Future Past, it's hard not to think of what other cinematic stories might be lurking in the long and complex history of X-Men comics. After all, this team was once the most popular in the medium, and their popularity has yielded a number of memorable sagas that are perfect for the silver screen. Some (like God Loves, Man Kills and the legendary Dark Phoenix Saga) have already had their cinematic day, but others are still waiting for their moment.

So as we await the triumphant return of the X-Men to movie theaters, we can't help but wonder what other X-Men comic-book sagas would be well suited to blockbuster glory.
