Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Though many of us loath 3D movies, there are few that we attend, thus forcing us to return those plastic glasses. Many theaters run an spot before the movie reminding movie goers to return their glasses to be recycled. With many reports circulating that these glasses are covered with germs (and fecal matter), we wonder what you do with your 3D specs.
Setting his grand plan for godhood into motion, Apocalypse dispatches his agents to capture the world’s most powerful mutants, the fabled Twelve: Professor X, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Iceman, Sunfire, Polaris, Cable, Bishop, Mikhail Rasputin, the Living Monolith, and Magneto. Having himself planted the seeds of the Twelve legend, Apocalypse hopes to siphon their power, granting him omnipotence. Desperate to stave off his ascension, the X-Men must strike a temporary truce with Magneto to battle the warlord’s forces as the Twelve are assembled – and one longtime member seemingly sacrifices his own life to end the threat of Apocalypse once and for all!
