'80s "X-Men" Art Dazzles Twitter Thanks to Hashtag

Artist Kevin Wada ("Catwoman") has launched the #80sxmen hashtag to much success in the comics community, prompting artists to render their own '80s-influenced "X-Men" drawings.

The hashtag comes at a perfect time, considering the '80s setting of the upcoming film "X-Men: Apocalypse," and overall affection for that era of X-books.

Check out a few stand out examples from Twitter below:
