A new video gives fans a preview of what to expect for the mutant characters that will appear in the FOX TV series, The Gifted, set in the world of the X-Men. During San Diego Comic-Con 2017, a trailer for the show was released that gave more details on the series’ story, while this video provides more insight into the mutants and their abilities.
In the video, we see showrunner Matt Nix talk about how mutants are viewed in this terrifying world that’s established in the series. The Gifted preview then proceeds to introduce us to four of these “objects of fear” that the show will follow: Thunderbird, Blink, Eclipse, and Polaris.
Thunderbird, played by Blair Redford, has superhuman strength and can see into the future. The comic book version of Thunderbird joined the X-Men in the 1970s, only to die on his second mission. The character’s brother, Warpath, has a much bigger presence in the comics and was featured in X-Men: Days of Future Past, played by Booboo Stewart. You can check out said video, below:
