The feature inspired by great cosplay and fan art where I imagine various Marvel properties taken to the small screen and wonder aloud just what their shows would be like. Today's pitch: The New Mutants
Back to school! Fox is holding the rights to all the mutants. It also has its own TV network. So imagine for a second that they'd try their hand at sending of few of Professor X's charges to the small screen. After all, a TV series set in a high school is a format we can all understand. It's Glee with super-powers, right? Or Buffy without the demons (well, no, thanks to Magik, there would be demons aplenty). And the format is well-suited to getting new characters in and shuffling old ones out, thanks to something called "graduation".
From there, it's all the school bits from the X-Men movies expanded into a youthful, angst-ridden soap opera. And while viewers shouldn't expect Hugh Jackman or even Patrick Stewart to put in an appearance, I'm sure some lesser lights who weren't exploited in the films would make good teachers. They never did anything with Havok and Polaris, for example. Or how about Forge? Or it's Bishop who's re-opened the school after Xavier's gone missing to insure his future happens - or doesn't!
Hey, it's not the X-Men franchise if people from the future don't come back to screw with history. What would you do with Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters?
