Episode Notes

🎄 It’s 1995, and I call upon the raging wind and the retired hosts of The Hourchive to send us flying into the Marvel Animated Universe where the X-Men spend an uncanny Christmas in the sewer trying to save a sick Morlock. Join us as we size up the X-Mansion Christmas tree, praise Storm’s fashion sense, and berate her leadership skills.
