Marvel’s RUNAWAYS Pits the Kids Against Their Supervillain Parents in First Teaser

What if your parents were evil? Not just like, annoying, but full-on supervillain. What would you do? That was the central question behind Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s Runaways comic book series. Taking place in a corner of the Marvel Universe that was rarely explored, it brought together an unlikely group of teens who were only united by their opposition to their parents. And next month, the Runaways are joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a new series on Hulu. At New York Comic Con, the first trailer was finally revealed and it covers some key moments in the team’s origin story.

As you may have surmised from the trailer, the kids don’t exactly like each other, since they were only brought together by their parents. They may have been friends at one point, but they’ve clearly grown apart. Unfortunately for Alex, Nico, Karolina, Gert, Chase, and Molly, their parents are secretly the villains known as the Pride and in these clips, the kids unintentionally discover their parents’ true nature after witnessing a human sacrifice.

The new footage offers up our first glimpse at Old Lace, the genetically engineered dinosaur who is loyal and bonded to Gert, while also teasing Karolina’s alien heritage and Nico’s latent magical abilities. In the comics, Molly was a much younger girl who was also a super strong mutant. She’ll probably be an Inhuman in this incarnation, but her powers will remain intact. As for Alex, his superpower is his mind, and he’s the one who may be able to bring down the Pride with a little help from his friends.

The first season of Runaways will premiere on Tuesday, November 21 on Hulu.
