WATCH: It's X-Men vs Mad Men as January Jones Plays With Her Own Action Figures

Anyone who grew up with action figures no doubt had them duke it out every now and again, which basically amounted to taking two (or more) pop culture icons in your hands and slamming them into one another until a winner was declared. Doing that with figures of popular characters you yourself have played on-screen, however? That's a slightly more unique experience. And one person who can say they've done it is X-Men: First Class and Mad Men alum January Jones.
Jones shared a lighthearted video to her Instagram profile, in which she takes two of her own action figures -- one of Marvel Comics' Emma Frost and another of Mad Men's Betty Draper -- and (providing the voices for both) has them hurl insults at one another before settling their differences the old-fashioned way.
Despite her mutant powers, Emma comes out worse for wear in this one, losing multiple pieces before all is said and done, with Betty then being declared the winner. Jones' reason for hosting the bout: "It's too hot outside."
Her most famous role, Jones starred on AMC's Mad Men from 2007 to 2015 as Betty Draper, the wife (later ex-wife) of main character Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm), picking up two Golden Globe nominations and one Primetime Emmy nomination in the process. Jones joined the world of Marvel adaptations in 2011, playing powerful telepath and Hellfire Club member Emma Frost in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn.
