Generation X (Unrelated TV)

Plot

  • Locked away in a special institute, two self-appointed renegade mutant ‘elders’ prepare six young people – born to rebel, but destined to harness their mutant powers to serve a population that has been conditioned to disown them – for their new future, by subjecting them to a rigorous mental and physical training regime designed to fully develop their extraordinary powers. When a corporate psychopath launches his bid to dominate mankind by manipulating the dream dimension, he finds one missing link… a mutant’s super brain.
