Fox's THE GIFTED Won't Ignore The X-MEN, Their Absence Is Actually A Big Part Of The Show

The trailer for The Gifted revealed that "the X-Men don't exist anymore" but that wasn't an indication that the show's shying away from the faculty at Charles Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters.

If you thought Fox's The Gifted was establishing right off the bat that the X-Men wouldn't be playing a prominent role in the series with the line in the Comic-Con trailer that the mighty mutants were gone, you interpreted it incorrectly- at least according to showrunner Matt Nix.

 “In our world, one of the things we’ll be unpacking is the specific relationship of this group of characters to the X-Men. It’s in the trailer that the X-Men are gone. And that’s not a dodge, like ‘The X-Men are gone and we’re never going to mention them again!We’re going to be exploring it. It’s a huge deal to these guys. It’s a huge deal in the world. It’s one of the central mysteries of the show.

But how should fans interpret the statement above? Are the X-Men dead or just missing?  While the focus of the show appears to be this family that's on the run from Sentinels, will there be a subplot that deals with finding the missing X-Men?  We'll have to wait until the series premiere this fall on Fox for definitive answers.
