Imagine the world with people who possess superhuman powers and can do things beyond what the ordinary human mind can comprehend. Of course, these people are only found in movies and TV shows like The Gifted, Powers, Marvel’s The Inhumans, Looper, Cloak And Dagger, and The Chronicle.
The Gifted, in particular, has gained a lot of attention due to the fact that it was inspired by the stories from the X-Men comic books. The American TV series, The Gifted, had an exciting first season but an even better second season with more powerful scenes. The second season of the series introduced some old faces from the comics while many new characters were created for the TV series.
The show’s plot revolved around two parents trying to keep their children safe by fleeing underground as the government rounds up people who possess mutant abilities. In order to protect their children, the gifted children are tricked into joining a sect of the mutant community that is also on the run from the government. In the second season of The Gifted, the mutants continue their fight for mutant civil rights. The season also introduces the Morlocks and further explores the terrorist organization, the Purifiers. Let’s meet some of the cast from Season 2 of Gifted.
