Now, while the attention of the comic book-ing world has now largely turned to the great Iron Fist debate of 2017, it's worth taking a second to note that while many of us were entirely preoccupied with Netflix's latest -themed TV show, other comic book-themed properties were doing fancy schmancy things elsewhere.

After all, 's just pulled off something rather impressive at the box office, earning a small yet significant $17.5 million domestically in its third weekend of release. Which, crucially, means that, by having now earned a whopping great $184 million in the US alone:

After all, it's $184 million domestic haul puts it ahead of both 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine (with $179 million) and 2013's The Wolverine (with $132 million) in terms of overall box office take, with that number seemingly certain to creep past $200 million in the weeks to come.

What's more, that trend is apparent at the international box office, too, with Logan having now made $340 million in foreign markets, for an overall take of $524 million, far more than either previous solo movie managed. With the film's comparatively low production budget (reported to have been only $97 million) taken into consideration, then, it seems entirely reasonable to declare it not only the most successful Wolverine solo movie of all time, but one of the most obviously profitable Fox-produced Marvel movies of all time, too.

Indeed, with the franchise's biggest domestic total being The Last Stand's $234 million back in 2006, it's not impossible to imagine a scrappy performance in the coming weeks earning Logan the title of "most successful non-Deadpool-starring Fox Marvel movie," too, which would be neat, and make the film about as big a success as Fox could reasonably have hoped for.

Of course, with Disney's Beauty and the Beast having just made $170 million in its opening weekend in the US alone, that success is inherently relative, but for those who wished well in his final outing as Canada's most iconic mutant, it's damn fine news all the same.

What do you think, though? Does Logan deserve to be the most successful Wolverine movie of all time? Let us know below!
