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.

"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:.

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

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

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:?
