Sadly, fans have been given very few specifics about what they can expect from the story of HBO Max’s “Madame X” series. Whether viewers are granted an in-depth origin story or become closer acquainted with a character who has already developed her powers will likely depend on the show’s relationship to the other HBO Max DC Comics series in the works.
That said, Madame X has a deep backstory, with many different traits and powers for the series to potentially explore. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, in one of the most famous stories that Madame X was involved in, “The New 52” from DC Comics, she offered her assistance to the Justice League Dark and was revealed as Doctor Destiny’s biological mother. Other times, she has been an associate of Spectre, and she has also been seen working with the Suicide Squad.
However, an article by Deadline points to another potential take on Madame X. Apparently, in some editions of the comics Madame X appeared in, she worked at a law firm where her psychic abilities helped her solve crimes. This type of presentation of the character might give her a much more grounded backstory to build around.
While there may be many details yet to come, fans should be excited to see “Madame X” get a full series treatment, and it will be interesting to see how it ties into a larger Justice League Dark project.
