We've all seen those comments around the internet about how some characters aren't 100% comic accurate. How some of the X-men characters don't have the right outfits for battle. Even how Jesse Eisenbergs', Lex Luthor isn't anything like his comic book character. Well, I've brought you many of them. Showcasing how accurate they are in live-action.
First, let's start with Apocalypse because about a ratio of 40/100 dislike Oscar Isaacs' portrayal. Dislike puts it in better wording due to how strongly people feel about it. Now I like the live adaption, but here's how accurate it is to the comics. Minus his grey skin. From the robotic-like creases on each of his cheeks, to the Celestial gear and ship. This is Apocalypse.

I brightened the photos in order to see the details. It may not be 100% accurate, but to me, it is 80% accurate. Plus his body manipulates. So once I see the many weapons he will hopefully form into, my rating will shoot to 110/100.
A lot of slack keeps being given to the X-men franchise, which isn't needed at all. If you grew up watching and reading the X-men, you'd see how accurate Fox has been from First Class to now, Apocalypse. From how Jubilee barely wore battle attire, to Cyclops and Jean wearing different outfits other than black and white or yellow and blue. We've seen the yellow and blue outfits, even though it was without Scott and Jean Grey. But here are other accurate portrayals.

Then there was the entire Lex Luthor thing. We only have five days left until the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and many have already said that this Lex Luthor is one of the best performances. Now many believed his appearance wasn't the real Lex Luthor look. Of course it's pre-balding, but before he lost his hair, this is how he appeared.
While I won't say that there are some bias comments going around, I will say that there are some bias comments going around. I like multiple publishers, from DC to Image Comics, so there's no hate. But there were many that believed Marvel/Disney's portrayals were all ace's in the hole. They were accurate, yet they weren't the best because all things won't translate into realism beautifully. Like the Avengers, Captain America outfit. Which was 100% accurate, but didn't translate too well in live-action until the latter films.
Then there will be Baron Zemo, portrayed by Daniel Brühl.
I get why they chose not to have him with his famous purple mask. I see the sense it makes in hindsight. Their entire universe has had their characters' identities open. So to have a villain's identity hidden doesn't matter, though the alternative wouldn't either. He's not hiding, just like the heroes aren't. Now, I hope he does have the head band with circuitry, designed to disrupt psionic manipulation. They shouldn't take everything away from him.
So, if Fox continues to get hate, just refer the contributor over to this article. Or this gif will suffice.
