The epic battle between warring angels for the soul of mankind is going to take place on Syfy, after the network greenlit Dominion for series in 2014. The show is based on the characters first introduced in Legion, and I challenge you to read the synopsis and not think that this could be the greatest show ever.

Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post-apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.

Now I know I'm a sucker for the whole "post-apocalyptic avenging angels" thing, but Dominion sounds like a show of epic proportions. And while there's no word yet on a premiere date, Legion writer/director helmed the pilot.

The future of humanity hangs in the balance and we've got front seats.
