Episode 80 celebrate Uncanny X-Men #180 where Storm finally confronts Kitty Pryde on why she hates her new punk look. The issue is filled with things Chris and Chandler love, like ridiculous ’80s outfits (buccaneer boots on top of leg warmers on top of jeans…?), scenes at the mall, Storm kicking butt, and so much more. Plus, the question is brought up: “Who would you have on your mutant basketball team?”
Uncanny X-Men #180 was published in April 1984. That same month:
- Top film at the time: Police Academy
- Top song at the time: “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins and “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)” by Phil Collins
- Terms of Endearment wins big at the Oscars
- Several stars were born including Mandy Moore, Claire Foy, and America Ferrera.
