LMAO

YEAH YEAH, its all about them bloody humans trying to control the superhumans...
Remember the show ALPHAS? they are a few superhumans, working with their leader (ala Prof X) trying to find other superhumans and controlling them. It was a really good show, and then they bloody AXED it...
And then there's Mutant X (with similar storyline ish). MARVEL went greedy and cancelled the show! indirectly or otherwise, they still CANCELLED IT.
Then there's HEROES... also another good show, network not making enough money from it, so they cancelled it...

Oh Well!

I hope the black dude, "Mike", is a recurring character or this shit will be COMPLETELY racist. >.>

And somehow, I am still kind of looking forward to this, lol.

I can't help but get less and less excited for this effort. The more I find out about it the more it just seems like their sole motivation here is to cash in on the avengers success. I'm sure the pilot episode will be cool and ill watch this show but it just seems uninspired and it's hard to get excited over something completely uninspired. Something that's there just because. I'm way more excited for Arrow at this point and the debut of The Flash.

No one gives a shit if you're excited for this show or not. Watch it. Don't watch it. No. One. Gives. A. Shit.
ROMsnotdead - 9/7/2013, 5:47 AM
the best way to hook people on this show would be to have a marvel cameo, even a small one, in each episode. like a blind lawyer or a scientist, a young female singer who does her own lightings..i don't know..

My bad I was just making comment about the topic of the article in an open forum for comments that have to do with the topic... of the article. My mistake asshole.

Can't Wait for Sept 24th & Nov. 10th!!!!!!!!!!! *points to the scoreboard*
JediPhilosopher - 9/7/2013, 7:16 AM
I hate that I must admit this, but I'm looking more forward to this than I am to anything coming from Arrow. Arrow is a dark soap opera, always gloomy, always angsty. This show looks to be a bit like X-Files with a superhero leaning. I don't have much patience for tv shows.

@ROM no Dazzler. That's Fox property.
Newbus - 9/7/2013, 1:04 PM
Just saw the add for this on channel4. Looks like Maria Hill is in the hot seat.
sethasa - 9/7/2013, 5:25 PM
Marvel's first television series? Weren't they directly involved in both "Misfits of Science" in the 80's and "Mutant X" in the early 2000's...?

Looking forward to this!
