X-Men (1989): Pryde of the X-Men

Join Shawn and Scott as they discuss an 80's Saturday morning gem: The rarely seen (or heard of) animated X-Men pilot for NBC! Listen as Scott gives a condensed history of the X-Men in animation, Shawn addresses recent news of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and both recount a Spider-Man voter registration PSA with great confusion. Why does Wolverine speak with an Australian accent? (Yes, really.) Why aren't most of the X-Men dead at the end of this episode? What's up with Kitty Pryde's parents? These questions, and more, get tackled like a powered-up Magneto! We tried like thunder, and now this episode is coming your way!
