Runaways Creator Calls TV Series 'Fantastic'

Be prepared for a new breed of superheroes. Marvel's Runaways, whose first three episodes start streaming on Hulu on Tuesday, is another of Schwartz and Savage's kids-are-more-sympathetic-than-adults shows, and it works on that level.

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. And maybe, the TV series suggests, the teens themselves have superpowers too.

Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature, Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, a loud-and-proud nerd; Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, a budding wiccan with a carefully crafted goth facade; Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, whose model-perfect exterior disguises an eagerness to explore her identity and desires; Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, a brash, purple-haired budding activist; Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, a lacrosse-playing heartthrob with flashes of engineering brilliance; and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, the youngest member, known for her positive outlook and deep yearning to belong. They're all varying degrees of stressed and unhappy, but they're also energetic and quippy in the manner of an updated O.C. scenario.

Thanks to his role as Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, James Marsters has been an important part of genre fandom for two decades. The 10-episode first season of Runaways debuts November 21 on Hulu. Why, the teens barely have time to utter gnomic teen wisdom such as, "Some people hide behind makeup, others behind a smile".

The Marvel Comics series on which Runaways is based is widely admired, and I've liked other comics Vaughan has written, such as Ex Machina and Y: The Last Man.

Runaways combines the elements of the superhero series with what we'd normally see in a teen drama.

Marvel's Runaways is streaming now on Hulu.
