X-Men Show The Gifted Shows Mutant Powers in Action
At the panel for The Gifted today at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel and FOX showed off lots of new footage from their upcoming X-Men based TV series. As we reported earlier, showrunner Matt Nix confirmed at that panel that the show is set in a different timeline than the X-Men movies — a timeline where the X-Men have disappeared, by the way — but as the scenes screened today proved, that doesn’t mean that mutant powers aren’t flying aplenty in the world of The Gifted.
In the first scene showed, Blink (Jamie Chung) is on the run from the police while a group of other mutants are also attempting to track her. They are the light-projecting Eclipse (Sean Teale), the mistress of magnetism Lorna (Emma Dumont) and the tracker Thunderbird (Blair Redford). They find the wrecked top of a police car, which had earlier been accidentally caught in one of Blink’s teleportation fields.
