15 Best Comic Book Movie Moments Of 2017

1. Logan Dies - Logan

Logan Ending
Fox

And finally, the best comic book movie moment of 2017 goes to Logan's heartbreaking demise. After his super-serum has run its course, Logan is forced to battle X-24 in a severely compromised state, and X-24 ends up fatally impaling him on a tree, seconds before Laura manages to blow the clone's head off with an adamantium bullet.

As Laura comforts a dying Logan, he utters, "So this is what that feels like" (presumably referring to both death and having a quasi-family), as a devastated Laura calls him "daddy", and the other young mutants show up just in time to watch him expire, one poor boy even clutching a Wolverine figure.

What cements this as an all-time superhero movie moment, though, is when Laura buries Logan under a pile of rocks, and then rests a twig over the rocks, spelling out an "X" in tribute to all the fallen X-Men.

It's a masterful way to end Hugh Jackman's run as the character, a bravely definitive end for one of cinema's most-loved superheroes, before Johnny Cash's "When the Man Comes Around" fittingly plays over the end credits. What a movie, and what an ending.
