Legion Trailer: First Look at FX's New Marvel Drama

X-Men spin-off series Legion starring Dan Stevens has been revealed in a new trailer, and it's looking delightfully insane. (Haller is the son of the X-Men's Professor Charles Xavier in the comics, but it's unclear if the FX series will tie that thread). It also introduces Fargo's Rachel Keller as Sydney Barrett, a missing woman with whom David claims to have switched places. It basically looks like Mr. Robot but with superpowers. He's one of the most powerful mutants to ever exist in the Marvel Universe, with powers divided between his multiple personalities. Watch the trailer above.

The series, like the comic book it's based on, revolves around David Haller, a schizophrenic man riddled with mental illness and mutant powers. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) and Jean Smart (Fargo) will co-star. With comic book movies flooding the market as of late, FOX has made a decision to expand their "X-Men" brand and bring to life one of the most overlooked storylines, "Legion Quest".
