The image sports the tag line “power comes from within” and shows a colorful cloud of lightning-like flashes emanating from the head of the show’s lead character David Haller, played by “Downton Abbey” alum Dan Stevens.
Haller was first introduced in 1985 in Marvel’s “New Mutants” #25, as a young man with dissociative identity disorder whose personas each control one of his several mutant abilities. According to the show’s official description, “Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.”
Starring Dan Stevens, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Rachel Keller and Amber Midthunder, season one of “Legion,” will consist of eight episodes and debuts February 8 on FX.
