THE GIFTED lives in the world of X-MEN, but the show plays host to a whole slew of characters we never met in the movie universe. At the heart of the series is the Strucker family. The patriarch of the family spends his days rounding up mutants to keep society safe, but his world view is rocked when he learns that his own children are mutants. Forced to go on the run, the Struckers will come across four new characters: Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, Blink/Clarice Fong, Polaris/Lorna Dane and Thunderbird/John Proudstar.
With the X-Men missing in action, can the Struckers and their new friends survive? Get a glimpse at the powers of these new mutants below in the first six minutes of THE GIFTED.
THE GIFTED premieres Monday, October 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
