    Legion -xmen-

    Anyone else watching? I just started it and watched every episode in one day.... I am just flat out amazed with how ****ing sick this show is... there is no more complex character than David ****ing Haller... holy **** if you love logan you should be all over this.... this is about one of the most OP characters in all comics... He is that ridiculous and has limitless potential.

    It's such a unique show, unlike anything on tv right now.

    Legion -xmen-

    I've been recording it and watching it when I have time.

    I like weird, trippy-type films and shows, so I'm digging this series quite a bit.

    It's wierd as ****, but very entertaining.

    Aubrey Plaza is on another level in this show too, which is surprising because I never thought she was much of an actress before, even though I did always like her on Parks & Rec.

    Oh, and Noah Hawley is something else...Fargo and now this?

    I honestly didn't even know about it. What is the premise? What channel is it on? I will definitely give it a watch.

    its about one of the strongest villians ever and one of the most insane... He is Professor X son... He is quite literally insane but that is the only way for him to control his powers... He has a ton of personalities and each personality has their own set of powers... in the comics when he finally became sane that is when he could control all of his powers at once....

    from an article....

    The comics are (unsurprisingly!) a whole lot weirder than the TV show. Legion, created by legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont and artist Bill Sienkiewicz, is the illegitimate son of Israeli Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Haller and Professor X, one of the most powerful mutants on earth. (He also has really tall hair.) His abilities first manifested during a terrorist attack in his youth. Assassins, out to kill any Israeliís they could find living in Paris, invaded his familyís home and killed his stepfather. The trauma caused him to lash out psychically and destroy the minds of the terrorists. However, since his mind linked to every single person he killed, the trauma splintered Davidís mind into a whole host of distinct personalities. Those personalities can each control a single portion of his incredible powers. He even absorbed the mind of one of the assassins, Jemail, which is, yeah, too creepy for words.



    David, at least for the most part and when heís in control of his legion personalities (see what I did there?), means well. But his cracked psyche makes him a liability, and heís managed to destroy entire timelines while trying to achieve nobler ends. In one storyline, he traveled back in time (because he can time-travel, which I totally should have mentioned) to try to stop Magneto and help ensure a peaceful existence for mutants, only to wind up killing Professor X and paving the way to one of the many alternate dystopias that litter the Marvel universe.

    And then there was the time when some his his sub-personalities got corporeal bodies and escaped, so he had to

    Its actually hard to call him a villian... he is but he really does try to be good... its just he is ****ing insane lol.... he is also one of the top 10 strongest mutants in known history...

    http://screenrant.com/legion-david-h...ties/?view=all

    This is a link to his personalities and said abilities that he put into each personality...Example of why he is so OP

    One of his personalities has the healing ability that is like 10 times stronger than wolverine and 5 times stronger than deadpool or something along those lines... which means he is forever basically... In fact the 3 i have stronger then him are Jean gray phoenix/Scar Witch and Richards... when he is sane he may very well be 2nd to only richards.

    Huge Marvel fan and was excited as hell when i heard about this show. Ive seen the first two episodes but have been too busy lately to keep up with it, but it looks confusing. But good.

    His powers seem almost identical to the dark phoenix.

    I want to like this show much more than I actually do; too ambiguous and too slow moving for me. I'm not familiar with the character somehow, so maybe that takes a little of the luster away. As is though, I'm 6 hours into this thing and it's still building the story and offering very little payoff. That's a bit much for me.

    its the Xmen universe... You need to pay really close attention cause if you miss one thing it ****s everything.... He is quite literally the most complicated character in the xmen universe... Sometimes its hard to even know whats real but that is the beauty of it... The story is basically the unknown that he is... They dont even realize he might be the strongest mutant ever... He wants to be good but he is insane and the only time he can control his powers is when all his personalities become 1 and he becomes sane which makes him become a villian because he sees everything in a broader spectrum... It has to be slow paced because of the character.... if it was anyone else it would be different but his personalities make **** complicated.
