So that headline probably needs an explanation. Open your notebooks to page one.
- Kyle Marlett is touring to promote his new Facebook Watch show, in which he convinces members of the public they’ve been given superpowers.
- The show is called Mutant Powers.
- The X-Men are a fictional team of mutants with superpowers who regularly appear in the pages of Marvel comics (Note: Marvel is in no way affiliated with the show).
- In the video above, Marlett draws an X on his hand, and then magically transfers that X to the closed fist of a TV host.
- The X makes Marlett a man with an X on his hand, thus an “X-Man.”
- The TV host now also has an X. Thus they are X-Men.
- Headline of the decade.
Oh, and here’s the actual episode. I guess that’s important.
Mutant Powers is set to run for five episodes, with a new episode airing every Thursday at 3pm EST.
