Even though there have been brief moments of brightness scattered throughout The Gifted’s first few episodes, there’s been a distinct sense of hopelessness that feels central to the show. Despite its title, last night’s episode “eXodus” made it clear that the Mutant Underground’s running out of options for escape.
Tonight, Fox and Marvel begin a new saga set in a TV-friendly offshoot of the X-Men universe with The Gifted, a show about a young family on the run from a government seeking to capture and control America’s Mutant population. Not sure what’s happening, who’s who, and why no one’s running around in Spandex yelling “To…
The cast and crew of Fox’s new show set somewhere in the X-Men cinematic/television universe descended upon Comic-Con today with one of the more impressive panels of the week so far and plenty of new information about the series.
After millions of years of evolution, our species has, like an aging rock band, settled into a comfortable, familiar groove: Your classic bipedal, theory-of-mind-having Homo sapiens. Then, there is another class of human. This class of human has spectacular powers, such as mind control or the ability to manipulate…
Fox’s upcoming X-Men drama The Gifted is a Marvel story as old as time. People with powers walk among us, those without powers fear them, and the government is seemingly hell-bent on capturing and imprisoning all of the... well, the gifted.
Deadpool 2 is looking to finally bring Cable from the pages of Marvel comics to the big screen. But there’s one daunting aspect of that—how do you explain a comic book history as complex and as absurd as Cable has? For now, it sounds like the answer is to avoid as much of it as possible.

We’re about to get another Marvel TV show—but this one is coming to Fox, as part of plans to expand the mutant universe beyond the X-Men films. But with its arrival, one previously announced X-show between has already been canceled.
For some reason every superpower has to come with a downside. The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants. But why can’t it just be win-win? It turns out it can, you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.
It’s a hard life, being a Marvel mutant. Sure, you get rad powers (maybe), but also get the rest of the world hating your guts for simply existing. On top of that, you and your fellow mutants are almost always facing apocalyptic scenarios. Here’s just eight times Marvel have threatened all Mutant-kind with oblivion.
The next mutant movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, is going to take place in the ‘80s. And director Bryan Singer has warned that while this will be an X-Men movie, it’s going to also be a massive monster movie at the same time. Well, at least Professor X still has his hair.
Bryan Singer has been teasing the return of Angel to the X-Men world for sometime, but today it's official. Angel's back, and he's got a brand-new look — but it's one that should be very familiar to comics fans.
We love to imagine how biotechnology might one day enhance our fleshy bodies, but too often, Earth’s wildlife are left out of the future entirely. Enter Kathryn Fleming’s future zoo, filled with a menagerie of fantastical, slightly disturbing, genetically modified mutants.

This week's Avengers & X-Men: Axis #7 has reshaped the history of the Marvel Universe with just a few panels, but here's the crazy part: the change makes sense! (In its own weird way.)
Seriously, this is one of those questions that requires a lot of worldbuilding and thought to answer — the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can't exactly show their faces in public, plus they're ninjas. So how on Earth do they obtain the pizza on which they mostly subsist?
Watching Michael Fassbender And James McAvoy do impressions of their future selves in the X-Men movies right in front of the magnificent actors who play said future selves, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, is WONDERFUL.
Hugh Jackman answers everything you are dying to know about X-Men: Days of Future Past and shares a few fun spoilery details that we couldn't reveal earlier in our exclusive interview.
