PiercingMetal Thoughts: I originally said how I was on the fence about this show and for the most part I still am but since the first season is only eight episodes and “Bones” will be ending in the coming weeks I probably have sufficient room on the DVR to give it a shot. In my post about the trailer (see HERE if you missed the trailer) I said the following “I didn’t “love” the most recent “X-Men: Apocalypse” film that was released and really think the time is now for these properties to return to Marvel so more interplay can be done for the fans of these characters. Don’t even get me started on the horrific “Fantastic Four” film from 2015 which Fox delivered to scores of negative reviews. Marvel Studios is on the winning path with their legendary heroes and I think all need to be under one umbrella at this point. Now as far as Legion goes as a character, I never really liked him at all. Sure he is the son of Xavier and has multiple personalities and powers but will that make for a compelling show as much as a possibly interesting comic series?” I guess time has found me a little more open and I wonder what you readers think as well. Will you give it a chance or are you rallying with me proclaiming “Make Mine Marvel Studios”. Hit those comments so I know for sure.
