Speaking of Noah Hawley, FX liked him so much it gave him a superhero show. Taking place in the same universe as Fox's X-Men, Legion will follow the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), one of the most powerful mutants in the world and Professor Xavier's son. Bordering on being an acid trip with psychedelic visuals ​à la​ Doctor Strange, and a rich drama in the vein of Hawley's other projects, Legion is looking to expand the reach of Marvel's ever growing-hold on pop culture—while giving fans more of what they love. The casting looks to be on point, with heavyweights like Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, and potentially James McAvoy or Patrick Stewart (as Professor X) making appearances in the eight-episode run of the first season. The big question is if Legion can live up to the heights of Fargo and change the perception of how these comic stories are ripped from the page. But if the people involved are any indication, we're in for a wild ride. —Justin Davis
