The Marvel After Show: "Marvel's Runaways" Season 2, the official companion podcast, takes a deep dive into the hit Hulu series and helps you find out more about the episodes and your favorite characters!
What's it like to meet your creations? Seeing comics come to life on-screen is the norm nowadays, but getting it right takes a precise amount of care and attention to detail. On Episode 2 "From Comics to Television" (listen above), hosts Lorraine Cink and Angélique Roché talk with Quinton Peeples (Co-Executive Producer / Writer) and Brian K. Vaughan (RUNAWAYS Co-Creator) about adapting the comic books for television and what it’s like to see their wildest and most imaginative creations come to life on-screen.
Vaughan started RUNAWAYS with the concept of subverting the idea that young super heroes always revere the people that take care of them, and as Season 1 showed—they definitely did not. This more authentic teenager mindset became the catalyst for creating deeper, more meaningful stories of family drama in the Marvel universe.
Super powers aside, RUNAWAYS encapsulated the struggle between teenagers and parents, something that was perfect for TV and made it easy to stay true to its origin.
The diversity and strong female characters in the Runaways comic series was a reflection of Vaughan’s own environment. That coupled with the timelessness of Adrian Alphona’s art is what makes the design of the show still feel modern and fresh.
The source material is a key component to bringing the world of the Runaways to life, and the fans are rewarded with subtle nods to the original comics both in visuals and storytelling.
