(CBR) When Professor X gave Wolverine and Gambit their pink slips, he was only getting started: In the latest “Ex-Men” sketch for his new late-night show on TBS, comedian Pete Holmes once again dons the bald cap to hand Angel, one of the founding members of the X-Men, is walking papers.

“Do you have any idea how many of the X-Men fly and do something else incredible?” asks Holmes’ Xavier. “You just fly, and it’s not even like an internal power, like something you focus. You literally have f—ing giant wings. You’re a f—ing bird.”

Watch the video below. "The Pete Holmes Show" airs weeknights at midnight ET/PT on TBS.
