As a comic fan who grew up in the 80s, the idea that there would one day be as many Marvel Comics movies as there are would have been inconceivable.
With this bundle, you get two fun Fantastic Four movies, a tolerable Daredevil/Elektra combo, and all of the X-Men movies released so far (July 2013).
At $60 for the group, there aren't really any complaints to be had. It's nine Marvel Comics movies, several of which include some pretty exhaustive special features, bundled nicely. They may not be as "sexy" per se as the as Disney/Avengers films, but so what? There's love in the creation of each of these -- even the goofy Origins: Wolverine movie.
I can't defend a $139 price, but should they ever come on sale for $60, by all means, go for it.
One more note: X-Men: First Class is among the very best of the Marvel films. It's well directed, well acted, set in a great era, and helps to round out the entirety of the X-Men franchise. I've got high hopes for Days of Future Past!
