I'm cautiously excited about this as Legion (as portrayed in his X-Men Legacy run) is one of my absolute favourite characters. I am very dis appointed that they did not retain his scottish-ness. I always read his dialogue in my head with a hearty brogue.

This bit here, sounds more like Rogue's powers.

So is this part of the MCU? Part of the X-Men Movie Universe? What's going on here?

FX is doing it, so not part of MCU. But I don't think they plan on him being Xavier's son either.

Comc books are one of the places where they make sense - coming as they are from massively serialized source material

This is getting rave reviews. I loved what this guy did with Fargo so I am very interested in this.

He should. Comic book Legion has lots of various powers he can call on.
Spoiler: show
depending on which personality he's using
