This month, X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters as the third installment of the X-Men film franchise. I mean, the sixth installment. Or is it the ninth?

X-Men continuity has long been a confusing topic in the comics, and FOX Entertainment has made sure the movie continuity is equally so.

And now... the X-Men Cinematic Universe Timeline.

Apocalypse made his silver screen debut last month, introducing to millions the menace of one of the X-Men's most powerful foes.
