Green Light For Marvel's "The Runaways"

Thanks to an impressive live-action pilot shot February 2017, Marvel and Hulu have greenlit production on an episodic TV series adapting Marvel Comics "The Runaways" "following six super-powered teenagers who can barely stand each other, but who must unite against a common foe – their criminal parents..."

"...'Runaways' follows a group of teenagers who discover their parents are part of 'The Pride' crime syndicate, made up of mob bosses, 'time-travelers', dark wizards, mad scientists, alien invaders and telepathic mutants.

"The kids steal weapons and resources from their parents, and learn they themselves have inherited their parents' powers..."

"After defeating their parents, the Runaways attempt to make up for their parent's sins by fighting crime in Los Angeles as the city's official protectors..."
