So when I first saw a synopsis of this project I immediately thought "uh, hard pass" but this trailer does show some promise:


The show seems to feature --

Thunderbird, Polaris, Blink

In addition to Strucker (as in Baron Von Strucker...) teenager 1&2 who seem to be your basic telekinetics (lame... hopefully there's more to them than that) there is a new character called 'Eclipse' which was a name that Sunspot used in the Age of Apocalypse alternate reality, but here seems to be sort of a hybrid of Sunspot and Dazzler capable of absorbing and emitting light.

So it's Heroes in the X-Men universe..."Dad puts people like us in jail." :)

It has Amy Acker so I'll give it a shot. :)

I just started watching, but ran to the forum to make this thread. Only to see you guys already started it.

It's off to a good start. This is in the same vein as Legion. So I'm in.

This was kinda predictable, but good fun still. Way better than inhumans.

The elf look certainly works for that chick though.

It was a bit weird seeing Amy Acker as the mom, kept thinking she looked too young to have 18 year old kids, even though I know she isn't.

With a body like that, it's a natural conclusion.

I enjoyed it, much more than Inhumans, even if it had a slight Heroes feel to it. I am intrigued by the timeline and where it actually fits into the Xmen universe.

I'd fill that asian namean?

I like the show. Way better than Inhumans, but that doesn't decide whether or not I keep watching this one. I just like it. Sort of has a Tomorrow People vibe to it, to be honest.

18 year old hottie is smoking too.
