The New Mutants

Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.

The final Fox mutant movie, they actually mention the X-men by name, but this team is based off a series from the 80’s that ended in 1991 and featured two different teams, the second of which introduced Cable, the character from the second Deadpool movie. The movie features the first team, who were in the vast majority of the issues from the 100+ issue series and was by far my favorite of the two. The movie is only tangentially related to the stories that were told in the comics, with a kinda sorta adaptation of the “Demon Bear” story from the early issues. I think it’s stronger for not being a full adaptation of those stories and I really wish we were able to see the full trilogy that was reportedly planned out for the team. Moving stories from pure super heroics to horror adjacent plots is one that rarely gets done with comic adaptations and they did a great job with The New Mutants,
