All teens hate their parents, but the kids in Marvel’s latest offering have good reason to. What would you do if you found out your parents were part of a secret supervillain cult? That’s the premise of the Runways, which is arguably the strongest comic book show on television, mixing classical superhero stories with magic, dinosaurs, and teen angst. Thanks to source material from Brian K Vaughn (Saga, that comic your friend who likes comics has told you have to read), the series feels fresh in the way that most shows based on comics do not. The juxtaposition of magic with Southern California aesthetics, brought to you by the creators of The O.C., only serve to further separate Runaways from the pack. —Madison Hartman
