In 2014, it’s admittedly hard to get psyched for superhero movies the way I did in the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or even the early 2000’s when the X-Men franchise first hit theaters.

Wishing for the cartoon bulb to ignite, to light,
Eager for a neon sign; Eager for a vivid high,

Gravitation of random thoughts until they fall in sync
