Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
You never know you're a mutant...
What is that?
... until it happens the first time.
I need to find my brother!
On this day, everything changes...
Two mutant kids from Dallas almost took down a high school gym.
Feds are coming in.
If it wasn't too hot before, it sure as hell is now.
I just can't believe there wasn't any warning.
Mom, you know that's how it happens.
It's moments of stress or danger.
Dad talks about this all the time.
We all know about your father's work.
I don't see how that makes you an expert.
Mom, I know because...
How do you think we got out of that gym?
Why didn't you tell me?
Dad puts people like us in jail!
My experience, things change when it's your own kid.
You hear about the mutant incident at the high school?
Those are my kids.
My family needs help.
We can't take this risk, all right?
Then when do we fight?
The X-Men, the Brotherhood.
We don't even know if they even exist anymore.
Or we're getting picked off one by one!
This is the story of two families...
Is this everyone?
Yeah, we're all here.
... who came together to protect each other.
Cops, coming fast this way.
Not the ones with resources, but the ones in the shadows, fighting to hide, to escape, to survive.
This is our story.
That way, go!
This is a burden, yes, but it's also a gift.
You ever burn anyone with that?
What about your girlfriend, you ever burn her?
She doesn't care.
That's why she's my girlfriend.
