Today our Merry Mutants are truly down on their luck… not only is the X-Mansion nearly robbed, but the kids realize that, without Professor X — they’re dirt poor!  So, what is a hero to do?  Why, head down to the Welfare Office in your Rolls Royce to beg for some cash!  And no, I’m not joking…

The X-Men also look for some blue-collar work, and take part in the most touching Father and Son reunion this side of that episode of Saved by the Bell when Zack’s dad wouldn’t take him fishing.

All that, plus our usual back-matter nonsense… including a Letterhack or two trying to get one over on Stan the Man!

    The thought of the X-Men at the Welfare office with their Rolls sparked outside is still making me laugh days after hearing this episode. These Essential episodes have become my go-to for when I’m unwinding and getting ready for bed. The only problem is trying to hear it when gargling mouthwash but, as my resume’ proudly states, I’m a multitasker.

    P.S. I find it hard to believe in my history of typing on my phone I have used the word ‘sparked’ more than ‘parked’ but my autocorrect states otherwise.
