The X-Men return with an arcade game that came to home consoles a mere 18 years later based on a cartoon pilot that eventually became our beloved 90s X-Men cartoon. Listen as Chris is joined by John Horsley and Kenric Reagan of Spoiler Country take a look at this gem of the 90s arcade world.

  • The Stan Lee interviews that we talk about? They’re real! Jim Lee and Chris Claremont
  • And so much more!
