The Gifted season 2 it’s on its way, so this week The 42cast looks back at season 1. We look at whether or not the series is a worthy adaptation of the X-Men storyline. We also talk about whether it benefits or huts the series to use a mix of new characters and 3rd string mutants. Then, we look at the Disney acquisition of Fox and talk about how we think that may effect the media landscape and The Gifted and Legion specifically.

This week Mike, Anji, and Mark join the cast.
