First things first, I have watched X-Men: Apocalypse twice. TWICE, guys! My love for the X-Men franchise goes back to the days when I was still in school, naive, and hadn’t learned much about the world. This was before Nolan’s The Dark Knight made everything less important. This was my first love for superhero characters. This is the real deal. I had loved the old Professor X and Magneto even before the younger versions made an appearance. I stopped following the franchise after the third movie came out, but when one day (I actually don’t remember when and how) I saw clips of First Class on TV or something, I fell in love again with it. After so many years, now we’re finally in the home stretch (or is it?) of the prequel trilogy, and I still love it despite what the reviews say.
