The more things change, the more they stay the same.

We got some of the coolest sci-fi stuff ever this year, from the big screen to the small screen. From nuanced stories about the intersection of race and superheroes, to alternate realities with Flash, to a live-action version of Armageddon with the X-Men. It’s been a big year. The one thing that ties all these things (even Stranger Things!) together? The iconic “I’m about to kick ass” face our heroes (and sometimes villains) display before the action takes place.

So we thought it’d be fun to recap 2016 by taking a look back at all of the best game faces. Yes, we really made a video of this.
