Fox’s new series, The Gifted, is set in the X-Men universe, but it’s not immune to the weird continuity issues the franchise always deals with. The show follows everyday Mutants rather than heroes, focusing specifically on a suburban family on the run with their two mutant kids, with only a few big name Mutants like Blink and Polaris making appearances. But, X-Men fans can’t help but wonder: Will the most popular Mutant of all, the Best at What He Does, make an appearance in The Gifted?

Were the X-Men Mentioned in the Fourth Episode of The Gifted?

No, but that’s okay. This episode was about getting the Strucker family back together, as the gang was able to rescue Reed and Polaris from the clutches of Sentinel Services. Now that they’ve been reunited, the Struckers and the Mutants will have to figure out a new, longer-term plan. It seems possible that the X-Men will factor into it in some way — if they’re still around.
