Fox is really hurting in the superhero show department, but Marvel is helping them correct that. Marvel is also helping FX get a television show based on a superhero. According to Marvel Hellfire will be coming to Fox while Legion will be heading to FX.

With the success of the rating pushing Daredevil show on Neflix, there’s no reason why they wouldn’t turn to another outlet that has a loose rating system to debut a new show. According to Marvel

The pilot introduces the story of David Haller: Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.

Over on Fox they’re pushing the same ratings envelope with Gotham, but Marvel also wants a piece of that sweet primetime action. We saw the Hellfire Club in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and now we’re going to see them again in a television show format.

Set in the late 1960s, the series — which will be produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, with 20th Century Fox handling the physical production — follows a young Special Agent who learns that a power-hungry woman with extraordinary abilities is working with a clandestine society of millionaires – known as “The Hellfire Club” – to take over the world.
