#7 – Runaways

1) Teens. 2) Found Families.

07 Runaways

Today we talk about one of our favorite teen superhero groups: Runaways! The basic pitch is it's about teens and found families. The longer pitch is that it's about six teens (at first) who find out that their parents are evil and run away, all while trying to figure out how to deal with their new discoveries and take down their parents.

Avengers A.I.
Tom King's Vision
Runaways Complete Collection Vol 1
