I'd be happy with her, too, but again would the CGI be too expensive?

I'm still catching up with the show and enjoy it... I'm still in the I'd rather have the family on the run, or the mutant resistance, I still don't feel the two are blending well together.

Dust would be called Pixie Dust then as I doubt we would see her entire body moving in dust form in every episode. Most likely youd see small dust but not like in the comics. Look at how Polaris' powers look like, her energy blasts are bigger in the comics.

So according to Jermaine Rivers (Shatter), Season 2 appears to be a lock.

Then she wouldn't really be Dust. I'll take a pass.

Yea perfect choices. Just the right level of fame to not be missed in a movie, but enough fan appeal to get excited to see them on the show.

Could another teen group work when New Mutants already exists though? I guess they could go the more young adult route to contrast the horror from New Mutants.

If not a version of Gen X I'd be down to see there version of X-factor clash with The Mutant Underground.

The X-factor I grew up reading were a government sponsored group with Forge, Havok, Strong guy, Multiple man and of course Polaris.

The concept of government mutants is an idea I really hope get's explored in tv or movies at some point.

Men in Black meets the X-men. Who wouldn't want to see that?

I didn't say a Generation X film should be made. But characters like Synch, Skin could be use as minor characters in films instead of d listers like Teenage Negasonic Warhead who has no business appearing in a film.

And I prefer X-Factor to be featured in a film.

Good thing, Fox hasn't made that move in any of the films yet so as DC/Marvel with most of their own shows. And this show seems to took it to the eXtreme by relying much on made up for TV characters. This is not even a Harley Quinn, X-23 and Spyke scenario and I doubt the Struckers, Turner, Wes, Carmen and Marcos Diaz so as the Legixn characters would show up in the comics after this.

And there is a difference between the comics and the adaptations. Comics are the source material. TV and films aren't. If Fox wants to create new characters, then do that for another show and not in a X-MEN TV show. Anyway, I think for Fox, they see this show as a second citizen, its just an extra profit for them and they are saving the bigger names in the films and don't care if the shows use made up for characters and it's not a failure of this would cost them big time, it won't. But IMO, they could have used this platform to bring spotlight to the hundreds of c to d listers that wouldn't show up in the films.
Yes they are all equal, as every writer is just taking the general concept that mutants with different powers exist and then applying it to the story they envision, and in this case, with a mix of original, and established characters, and that's okay. Speaking of Legion, that show is composed of almost entirely original characters and that show is amazing, so again the fact that original characters are brought in with major roles is not an issue.

I also would be fine with an entirely original cast in an x-universe based movie, but that is neither here nor there as this isn't the case with the Gifted due to the healthy mix of established and original characters both of whom get a good amount of the spotlight.

You got to do whatever serves the story best. I can't see how Synch or Skin could have fulfilled the role of emo teen with explosive powers.

Fanboys are a surprisingly small part of the audience. People like me and you would get a kick out of seeing Skin on screen, but it would have added nothing to the story. Just fan service that please a minority of viewers.

When it comes to smaller co star roles, I don't mind creative liberties being taken.

Well tnw was only used so Deadpool could make fun of her name, though her role was originally for Cannonball.

And of course, even if use Snych or Skin, they should be a good reason for it.
