X-Men Apocalypse Review (Spoiler-Free)

“Everyone knows the third movie is always the worst” – Jean still too much focus on Jennifer Lawrence/Mystique some great soundtrack choices Quicksilver scene maybe just a tiny bit too long.

Comics – Batgirl

Cassandra Cain was raised as an assassin. Growing up, her father never taught her to read or write, only to fight. She grew up knowing only one language – body language.

Comics: Ctrl Alt Del – Tragically l337

Ctrl Alt Del – Tragically l337 Never actually read Ctrl-Alt-Del before, although I have heard of it. The webcomic is somewhat Penny-Arcade like, except with more continuity and only one of the two guys on the couch is insane. The comic linked to above is my favorite so far. =)
