The Internet explodes on a daily basis for various reasons that I don’t necessarily care to mention. Ad nauseam because of the craziness on my various social media feeds like: race baiting, cops killing black kids, hunters killing lions, people pissed off because of it etc etc. The Internet has become a generally unsafe environment for my creativity. And sure, the X-Men: Apocalypse costume unveiling wasn’t nearly the most heart breaking news piece to come out in the past couple of months, but you know what? It was heart breaking for the X-Men fandom.
Comic book fans are some of the worst troglodytes to surface from the bowels of the Internet with their misgivings about ____*insert subject here*____. I know this because I’m one of them.

But not all is lost. Just today X-Men fans were treated to some kick ass pics for Archangel. Gaze at his magnificence and post ironic hipster hairstyle.
More developments soon to come friends. Stay tuned.
