    Feels like this should involve Shaw to some degree...

    Guess we can expect plainer, or more normal, looks for some of the major comic characters :sweat:.

    Given the premise, it makes sense they'd be mostly incognito and not in flashy costumes.

    And I'm only just realizing...these kids are supposed to be the Strucker/Fenris Twins? Wow :eek:.

    Though I'm not expecting the patriarch to start sporting a monocle at some point :p.

    At first I was amused one show was linked to Professor X and this one with Magneto but yeah, the Strucker name is hard to ignore.

    EDIT: Heh, blink and miss cameo of Blink.

    Very interesting to see that it won't only have X-Men characters, but that the X-Men are a thing in this universe. I wonder if it will be a part of the movie continuity.

    Apparently, it is connected to the movies, unlike Legion.

    "Sentinel Services," eh? Status of X-Men and the Brotherhood unknown? I'm intrigued. Plastic prisons and Sentinel spiders? Not so much...

    So it seems Reed's character description was a smoke screen and he was involved in Sentinel Services. Should be an interesting journey for his character -- a bit too much like Noah on Heroes but we'll see.

    Hm, looked like Caitlin was in prison garb in one scene. Acker and Chung were the only actors I recognized.

    Lauren generating that force field thing from air bubbles (?) was intriguing. Two children, one with a decent mastery and one out of control -- should be fun to watch.

    It was interesting to learn that Papa Strucker is part of a government agency hunting rogue Mutants. That adds even more poignancy to his kids getting outed as Mutants and his going on the run with his family :ack:.

    Interesting that the X-Men and Brotherhood are acknowledged, but with doubts as to whether they really exist. Feels like this could tie-in to Logan and what was said to have happened to the X-Men in that movie :eek:.

    This also might tie-in to Polaris' major role given she could be a direct link to what remains of the X-Men or Brotherhood, or at least remembers them :D.

    Hey, Blink has pink hair :anime:!

    Now I'm wondering if Polaris is just dyeing hers black :rolleyes2:?

    Those Spider-Sentinels remind me of the prototype Sentinels from the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon :cool:.

    At the Fox Upfront there's a Mutant Testing Center.

    Definitely seems like it's set between the DoFP new present and Logan. Amusing if Deadpool is referenced at least.

    Looking it up -- yeah, they do resemble the Prowlers. Neat.

    7/17: New poster for The Gifted.

    7/19: Viral advertising is gearing up again. Sentinel Services viral site is up. And twitter account posted a mug shot of Blink.

    www.sentinelservices.com

    7/20: Gifted viral ad continues with #MutantUnite.

    Well, at least it means they don't have to worry about continuity questions anymore :sweat:.

    I guess one way of looking at is Fox started getting into the Multiverse and different timelines concepts before most other comic book media did :rolleyes2:.

    I swear every time I see the Strucker Dad I keep imagining him pulling out a monocle from out of nowhere :p.

    It's really cool seeing Thunderbird, Blink, and Polaris' powers in action more :D.

    I wonder if Eclipse's girlfriend is someone we should know? Or...Lorna :ack:?
