A promo for Legion’s next episode, Chapter 7, has revealed the mysterious villain who has been tormenting David Haller: the Shadow King.
The 30-second promo – available to view via i09 -features a conversation between Cary Loudermilk (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement). “I’ve been watching this David person and his monster,” says Oliver. “You know what it is — or should I say who?”
“Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King,” replies Cary.
The Shadow King is a recurring villain in the X-Men comics. He is a psychic demon who can only appear in the real world by possessing the body of powerful telepaths, and usually appears as twisted and morbidly obese. We predicted that Legion’s ‘The Devil With Yellow Eyes’ was the Shadow King last month.
