It’s the regular-sized, nothin’ happenin’ Landmark Milestone FIFTIETH Episode of The Essential X-Lapsed!

And, boy do I wish we had a better story to talk about…

It’s the X-Men vs. Frankenstein(‘s Monster)… by the way, I will refer to him both as “Frankenstein” AND “Frankenstein’s Monster”… so, consider that your trigger warning!  Also, we meet the First Evil Mutant, the ridiculous Jack O’Diamonds!

All’at and all of our normal nutty back-matter!
