FX's Mutant TV Spin-Off Legion May Be Crazy, But It's Definitely Fascinating

Illustration for article titled FXs Mutant TV Spin-Off iLegion/i May Be Crazy, But Its Definitely Fascinating

Legion just telekinetically moved to the top of our “Must-See” list for this fall. The FX show—about David Haller, an incredibly powerful mutant who doesn’t realize the things he sees, hears and does are real—is completely unlike any other Marvel or superhero show, and it looks intriguing as hell. Watch this first trailer and see for yourself.

I would like to say that Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens seems to be doing a stellar American accent as David, and I love the “Sick Boy in Trainspotting” vibe he’s giving off.


Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.
