Watch the First 6 Minutes of THE GIFTED Right Now

The X-Men may be gone, but The Gifted remain! Fox’s upcoming Marvel drama takes place in a world where both the X-Men and the Brotherhood have seemingly disappeared. However, there are still a few familiar faces.

Fox has released the first six minutes of The Gifted, which introduces fans to Clarice Fong (Jamie Chung), but comic book fans know her better as Blink. This is a much younger version of the same character who appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, so her powers aren’t fully under control in this preview. Fortunately for Blink, she has a few new friends who are willing to help her out. But not all of them will make it home…

Two other X-Men characters made appearances in that clip. The first was John Proudstar a.k.a. Thunderbird (Blair Redford), a tracker and the leader of the underground mutant resistance. Joining him was Emma Dumont as Lorna Dane, a young woman who goes by the codename Polaris. Within the Marvel Universe, Lorna is Magneto’s daughter, and she also has his powers of magnetism.

The new character in this group is Marcos Diaz a.k.a. Eclipse (Sean Teale), a mutant who is apparently in a relationship with Polaris. Eclipse has the power to absorb and manipulate light. But given the way that his body glowed when he was shot, there may be more to Eclipse’s abilities than we’ve been told. It also appears that Lorna has retained some of her comic book counterpart’s instability, as she lost control of her emotions when Eclipse was hurt. And things really didn’t look good for Polaris as she was taken into custody.

The Gifted will debut on Fox this Monday, October 2.
