This week: "Days of Future Past, Part Two," in which we learn that the future is pretty much always going to suck no matter what we do. It's for the children!
On the off chance that you aren't already aware of it through our near-constant coverage, Cartoon Network's Adventure Time is one of our favorite things in the entire universe.

That’s why ComicsAlliance is heading back through the archives for an in-depth look at every single episode of X-Men. This week: "Cold Vengeance," in which the X-Men journey to two foreign lands. One is the exotic and dangerous island of Genosha, a site full of hidden schemes and an ominous future for the entire mutant race. The other is Canada.
