The story for the X-Men series Legion focuses on a character named David Haller, who has struggled with mental illness since he was a teenager. “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.”
Haller also goes by the name Legion. He is the son of Gabrielle Haller and Charles Xavier in the comics, and he’s a powerful mutant who is one of the founders of X-Men. What makes this character so unique and interesting is the fact that his mutant powers are controlled separately by his many different personalities.
Legion comes from Fargo creator Noah Hawley and stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Bill Irwin.
X-Men series Legion is set to premiere in early 2017.
