Fox titled THE GIFTED recently premiered. Set in a timeline where the X-Men have disappeared, THE GIFTED follows mutant siblings Lauren and Andy Strucker as they and their family flee the government and join forces with an underground group of mutants.
In the first episode of ComicsVerse’s THE GIFTED After Show, we discuss THE GIFTED’s take on the political and poignant themes the X-Men is known for. We talk about the cast and their performances and dig into the nature of the superhero genre in TV and film. THE GIFTED also features established mutants like Polaris, Blink, and Thunderbird, who contribute to the show’s greatest strengths.
