A Season with: Legion (2017) – Season 1

Review: In a world where superhero TV series comes in either one of these three styles: Netflix-Marvel street-vigilante style, Marvel movie tie-in style, or DC’s over-the-top Arrowverse style, FX’s Legion is an oddball. It doesn’t follow those patterns of style; even, it feels like a non-superhero superhero story. Sure thing is, the whole first season of Legion is a kind of thing you’ve never seen before in television (or even cinemas).

Consistently blending in metaphor, real-world issues, historical patrons, sci-fi flexibility, and abundant of interesting characters, X-Men stand-alone cinematic universe has also evolved into the most standfast, stable, and sustainable one among similar others. With 5 canon movies and 3 spin-offs, X-Men has a large and deep universe with longest time-span to unofficially make two ‘timeline sagas.’ The original, present time saga consists of Bryan Singer’s X-Men (2000) and X2 (2004) and concluded in a letting-down Brett Ratner’s The Last Stand (2006); while the clean-slate, retro saga was initiated with Matthew Vaughn’s Fi...
