With less than a month until Marvel Television and Netflix release the highly-anticipated Iron Fist as a lead-up to the Marvel’s The Defenders crossover series, fans of shows based on Marvel Comics can still get their fix from Agents of SHIELD on ABC and Legion on FX.
Agents of SHIELD continues to fight for relevance as part of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, receiving considerably less fanfare than its Netflix counterparts as it fills the gaps between Avengers movies. Legion, on the other hand, introduces fans to a whole new generation of mutants from the X-Men side of the Marvel Universe, just as it’s theatrical cousin Logan passes the torch from Wolverine to X-23.
Note: The following contains spoilers for the most recent episodes of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Legion.
