Maddy and Ryan continue their journey through the second season of X-Men: The Animated Series, and they’ve reached another terrifying and prescient episode about the Friends of Humanity, Marvel Comics’ anti-mutant terrorist group. “Time Fugitives, Part 1” weaves a confusing web of time travel shenanigans with our favorite time jockeys, Bishop and Cable, but it also manages to stuff in a metaphor for the AIDS crisis and plenty of reminders of our current divisive political climate. Unfortunately, Apocalypse is also in this episode, for some reason. More importantly, Cable makes friends with a tiny cube, and that cube is our new favorite character.
