Everything You Need to Know About Marvel’s LEGION

Do you ever find yourself lying in bed late at night, tossing and turning, sleep constantly eluding you as you think about Professor X’s sex life? No, I’m not talking about your reams of erotic fan fiction with Charles Xavier and the Brood Queen, Kyle Hill; I’m talking about the end result — namely Professor X’s son, David Haller. Well, clearly the folks at Marvel and FX have been thinking about it because their new show, Legion, premieres on February 8 and it centers on one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel universe.


But who is Legion? Why should you care about him? Is this show even going to be worth watching? (Spoiler alert: Yes, it absolutely is, especially because Fargo mastermind Noah Hawley is the series’ showrunner.) Well, on today’s episode of The Dan Cave, I’m going to tell you all that and more as we dive into everything you need to know about Marvel’s Legion.

What do you hope to see from FX’s take on Legion? What are you favorite Legion stories? Let us know in the comments below.
