FOX, OCT. 2

The Arizona Republic - - MONEY -

(Mon­days, 9 ET/PT)

Good­ness, it’s an odd year for Marvel. The com­pany has given its cor­po­rate cousin ABC what looks (based on an ad­mit­tedly in­com­plete pi­lot) like the sea­son’s worst new se­ries in Marvel’s In­hu­mans, while hand­ing ri­val Fox the best se­ries it has yet pro­duced. So what sets apart this X-Men off­shoot, about a fam­ily on the run from anti-mu­tant agents, from those fail­ures? Stakes. The pi­lot and the ac­tors im­me­di­ately make you care about th­ese char­ac­ters and their plight, and make you ea­ger to see what hap­pens next. For this com­pany’s TV di­vi­sion, that’s a marvel.
