While mutants are ready to storm big screen in "X-Men: First Class", another group of super-powered humans will grace small screen on "Alphas". Coming from "X-Men: The Last Stand" writer Zak Penn, the TV show follows a team of ordinary citizens with extraordinary mental and physical abilities.
A new promo for the Syfy new series is now available for viewing pleasure, introducing the characters as well as their special abilities. Nina (Laura Mennell) is able to re-program people's brains, Bill's (Malik Yoba) ability is to summon amazing strength, Gary (Ryan Cartwright) can read electromagnetic wave, Rachel (Azita Ghanizada) can enhance one of her senses, while Cameron (Warren Christie) possesses flawless aim, perfect balance, and greatly enhanced motor skills.
Led by Dr. Lee Rosen (David Strathairn), the fivesome takes the law into their own hands, investigating cases that suggest other Alpha activity to uncover what the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have not been able, or willing, to solve. The show will premiere on Monday, July 11 at 10/9c.
