It was clear going into the release of Logan that Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine was going to be a big deal - but it was hard to predict just how big of a deal it was going to be.
As of writing this, Logan is slashing its way towards an impressive box office debut - and the critical response has been exceptionally high, with our own Brandon Davis calling the film a "masterpiece" in his official Logan review.
However, as you can see above, Logan is more than just a critical and box office flash in the pan; in fact, according to our own Comicbook.com Composite Rankings, Logan is the No. 2 superhero movie of all time - coming in just behind The Dark Knight!
Logan has achieved a composite score of 88.6, keeping The Dark Knight in a safe lead (for now), with 89.36; Marvel's Captain America: Civil War takes third with 87.67, almost a full point behind Logan. Rounding out the top 5 are Guardians of the Galaxy with 85.06 - and the godfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man, holding evergreen strong with 84.25.
