Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel's Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe -- their parents.
While I'm not totally sold yet, there are signs by episode four that what's often true about the high-school experience could turn out to be true about this series: It might get better as it goes along.
Marvel's Runaways appears to be Hulu's version of Riverdale. Much like its counterpart on The CW, Runaways seems to veer away from the comic book canon in a way that should change the show and the future of the characters forever.
The problem is that series seems to take itself a bit too seriously. It could use a side of humor or an over-the-top quality. But these teens are mostly awkward, and while that could be charming, here it isn't.
