On 21 November, a brand new Marvel series debuts on Hulu and it’s different from all the rest. It’s not one of Netflix’s gritty takes, nor is it the broadcast adaptations of Agents of SHIELD or the ill-received Inhumans. And it’s entirely to do with the source material: Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s Runaways.
The premise is relatively simple: a group of teenagers discover they have powers and their parents belong to a supervillain organization known as the Pride.
It’s full of fun tropes and also plenty of diversity, which is clear from the new trailer.
There are six main Runaways: Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Karolina Dean, Gert Yorkes, Chase Stein, and Molly Hernandez. Oh, and a genetically engineered dinosaur named Old Lace with a telepathic connection to Gert.
