Professor X Attempts To Fire Magneto And The Results Are Hilarious

You'd think that the mutant cause would need all the help it could get, but not when you're Professor X as portrayed by comedian Pete Holmes. In his "Ex-Men" series from The Pete Holmes Show we've already seen Prof X dismiss Cyclops, Storm, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Jubilee, Angel, Gambit and Wolverine for not meeting his exacting standards. Or just... because.

Now it's Magneto's turn to get the chop.

But he doesn't go quietly, not before trading a few insults back and forth. "You look like a tool that tells us the gender of a foetus." lays down the Prof to which Magneto retorts, "You look like a white Steve Harvey." Ouch.

And if you wondered if making these videos is as funny as watching them, then this behind the scenes footage should set you straight.
