So Snapchat Replaced Its Selfie Filters With "X-Men" Ones

You can be Cyclops or Storm, but NOT the puppy with the tongue.

On Monday, Snapchat debuted its collection of X-Men: Apocalypse–themed selfie lenses in advance of the movie's opening on Friday.

Normally, when a brand pays for a sponsored lens, the lens is added to the beginning of the lineup. But this time, X-Men paid to take over ALL THE LENSES.

You can choose from nine different characters: Apocalypse, Cyclops, Mystique, Storm, Nightcrawler, Magneto, Quicksilver, Professor X, and Beast. But no more Coachella flower crown, and no more orange kitten face.

A lot of people are here for the X-Men takeover.

Others...less so.

Mostly, people wanted the dog filter back.

Which led at least one person to have to *gasp* DIY it with his OWN HANDS.
