Maddy and Ryan have just wrapped up watching the first season of X-Men: The Animated Series, and they’d like to remind you that Magneto was right… among other things. Magneto has captured Senator Kelly and the X-Men try to intervene, but before they can do that, the Sentinels rush in to capture Senator Kelly themselves. Now that humans and mutants have a common enemy in these big plastic robots, they’re able to put aside their bigotry.d

Is that realistic, even as a metaphor? Maddy and Ryan have some doubts, but nonetheless, they delve into this analogy and many others that have unfolded over the course of the season. They also review their favorite and least favorite characters so far, the episodes that should be skipped, and read some excellent mail from listeners about trans narratives in the X-Men and more!
