It’s the holidays, so we thought we’d have some silly, pun-fueled fun here at ComicBook.com. As an alternative to “The 12 Days of Christmas,” here’s a countdown of 12 things related to Marvel’s Merry Mutants for “The 12 Days of X(-Men)-Mas.”
Yeah, we know it’s silly, but cut us some slack. It’s X-Mas.

9 Dystopian Timelines
Cable and Bishop’s respective futures, Days of Future Past, 2099, Age of Apocalypse, Here Comes Tomorrow, House of M, Old Man Logan, Age of X…the X-Men have ties to a lot of unpleasant timelines, none of which you really want to visit over holiday break.

Great for carving a ham, or whatever other dead animal your eating. If you’ve got these claws, you’ve probably hunted and killed it yourself.

And you think your family dinner conversation is awkward.
And a cosmic Phoenix Force entity to restart the species.
It doesn't fit it any kind of tree, but that's okay. #CyclopsWasRight.
