Re: Nightcrawler in the Apocalypse Movie
Them being teens doesn't automatically mean angst and there's nothing wrong with them having real emotion about their positions as mutants in the world. Especially as they grow into adulthood.
The idea that teen characters aren't worth exploring because they are too angsty is ridiculous. When written correctly (see Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars etc.) angst and emotion amongst younger characters can be just as dark, compelling and gripping as older ones.
It's also automatically relatable to just about everyone because we've all either gone through or are going through it right now.
