FX has released a new poster for the upcoming X-Men movies spinoff TV series Legion.
The Legion poster shows protagonist David Haller's head exploding with psychic power turmoil, a fine visual representation of the character's internal struggle.
The shape of the tall pillar of smoke also seems like an homage to Haller's impractically tall hair from the Marvel Comics universe.
Check out the poster in the gallery below.
Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. 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 visions might be real.
Legion is based on the Marvel Comics character created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz in the pages of the X-Men spinoff series New Mutants. Legion, real name David Haller, is the mutant son of Professor X. David is an incredibly powerful mutant with a full array of powers, but each of those powers is controlled by one of his multiple personalities, and not all of those personalities have David's or anyone else's best interests in mind.
