At Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 over the weekend, panelists Kaitlyn Booth, J.R. Johansson, Christian Lambert, McCord Larsen, and Tracy Mangum talked all things Legion and why it's the best Marvel property on television.
Noah Hawley has taken one of the more obscure characters of the Marvel Universe and made 8 episodes of must see television. It's a comic book show that tackles mental illness, uses non-linear storytelling, writes complex characters, and challenges the audience to constantly pay attention. It's a visual feast, and top notch acting. We'll discuss David's journey from a patient in a mental hospital to a super hero. What does the Shadow King have in store in season two? Why aren't more people watching this show?
A few of us are a little obsessed with Legion, so of course we had to have a panel about it. This X-Men show came in and blew everyone's minds so we talk about all the things we love about the series and what we think is going to come next. We talk about what that after-credits scene means, and McCord gets his mind blown, which is pretty hilarious to watch. We talk a bit about The Gifted, as well, and whether or the two shows are going to cross over.
