Fox's new X-verse metahuman drama, The Gifted, premieres on Oct. 2, and the network has been pretty restrictive about the amount of enticing images and footage revealed.

Whether this is in direct response to ABC's The Inhumans garnering internet snickers and stabbing reviews is uncertain, but from what we've seen so far, it seems far better in comparison.

Recent trailer shots of the wild-haired mutant Polaris (Emma Dumont) have seen her freshly shaved skull while incarcerated in a governmental correctional facility, but now Fox has shared new photos from the second episode titled "rX," airing Oct. 9, which will have fans smiling.


Clad in a bright blue Lakewood Jail jumpsuit, Dumont is displaying her signature dark emerald green tresses from the Marvel comics (as seen above), now in a state of accelerated growth.

This new batch of images also displays the Strucker family (Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer, Percy Hynes White, and Natalie Alyn Lind) in distress, as well as a first look at Garret Dillahunt's Roderick Campbell, aka Ahab, the series' elf-like big baddie.

Rush into this fresh batch of The Gifted images and tell us if you're glad Polaris' long jade-black locks are coming back bigtime.
