Legion wants to encourage you to “Think differently.”
Preparing for the February 8th series launch Fox has launched a number of marketing efforts including Legion Multimedia, poster art, and more offering you a glimpse inside the mind of David Haller, the X-man known as Legion. The primary focus of it’s efforts has been art, as Legion’s mind blowing artwork by Bill Sienkiewicz has been an inspiration for most of the series promotional materials. Haunting and ethereal, Legion is asking you to “think differently” and “expand your mind” and they’ve launched a new website to help you with that fact at insidelegion.com, a tumblr page that offers you a look at the mutant whose mind we’ll be exploring – and the art that brought him there.
For starters, Fox offers an “Evaluation” looking for gifted individuals and potential mutants. While fairly straightforward quiz fair – the questions of observation, adept behavior, and thinking outside the box are paramount. Are you an “Adept” or a “Mutant”? Take the quiz here to find out and be careful when unleashing your new unique abilities – it’s a dangerous world out there for those who are different. Be sure to share your results with us on social media so we know how many visionaries are out there -and ready to watch this show.
