Polaris (Lorna Dane), Magneto's daughter, makes her live-action debut in this feature. She is the third of Magneto's children to appear in the X-Men films universe, after her half-brother Quicksilver (Peter Maximoff) in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and her half-sister in Apocalypse. Though Quicksilver was also featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, alongside his twin sister, Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), it's unlikely we'll see their half-sister Polaris in the MCU because the film rights to that character belong to 20th Century Fox.

As indicated in another post, each episode title has a specific letter capitalized (for season 1 it's the "X" and for season 2 it's the "M"). Given the film series this show is connected to, if the title naming "standard" continues with choosing a seemingly random letter in each title of a season, by season 4 the letters capitalized should spell out "XMEN".
