When a mutant’s powers manifest themselves for the first time, it can be a stressful, nerve-wracking experience. Viewers get to witness this first-hand in a new trailer for Fox’s X-Men-inspired drama The Gifted.
The trailer premiered at the Gifted panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, and begins with Andy Strucker unleashing his uncontrollable powers while being bullied at a high school function. With the help of his sister, the two Strucker children escape, but not before their actions make it into the news cycle and alert the mutant underground.
Back at home, the kids’ mother is presented with the fact that her own two children are mutants — which is a problem, since the head of the household, Reed Strucker, puts mutants in jail. However, Reed decides to put family before work and calls the mutant underground to aide him in protecting his family. The mutant underground wants to help, but indecision is in the air as we learn that the X-Men and Brotherhood (of Evil Mutants) may no longer exist.
Before the trailer ends, we get a rundown of each mutant in the underground (Thunderbird, Polaris, Blink, and Eclipse), new mutants Andy and Lauren Strucker, and a display of their impressive powers.
Airing Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont cast as Lorna Dane/Polaris, Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong and Blair Redford as John Proudstar/Thunderbird, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker and Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker.
