Legion: 10 Reasons It's The Best Superhero TV Show Of All Time

Embrace the strange and relish in the bizarre.

If you have yet to watch Legion, it's in your best interest to change that as soon as you possibly can. Because what is arguably the single best comic book television show to date did not come in the form of a Marvel Netflix series, nor in that as a part of DC's Arrowverse, but rather, in the form of a brilliantly made X-Men spin-off.
