After the announcement of the new X-men T.V. show title Gifted, more news has come through giving us the official name of Blair Redford's (Switched at Birth) Character. In a image posted on twitter through @XMenSaga shows several pictures Redford being on of them with a name under it as Thunderbird.
Redford was one of the first people to be casted to this show but being called at the time Sam. A Native America who leads the underground mutant resistance. Many people thought this was a codename and they were right.
It's hard to say which Thunderbird though being as there have been a few, The first being John Proudstar. Who was recruited by Professor X into the "Second Genesis" of the X-Men Giant-Sized X-Men #1 teaming up with Colossus, Storm, NightCrawler, Wolverine, Banshee, Sunspot and Cyclops to find the Original X-men from Krakoa, the living island. Other Thunderbirds are James Proudstar, who became Thunderbird after his brother John died and now sleeks revenge on Professor X, which he blames him for his brothers death. The third is Neal Shaara, an Indian mutant with the power of pyro kinesis.
With a few different directions to go with this character it'll be interesting to see what version of the character they will choose to do. For more updates on Gifted and other comic news follow Nerds with Words on Facebook and on Twitter @nwwpod.
