Marvel Adapts Runaways Comic

Brian K. Vaughan, a co-producer and writer on “Lost” and creator of the acclaimed comic series “Y: The Last Man”, will pen an adaptation of “Runaways” for Marvel Studios says The Hollywood Reporter.

Launched in 2002, the critically acclaimed comic book series follows a group of teenagers who find that some family secrets are bigger than others when they discover their parents are actually super-villains.

Running away from their homes, the teens band together and begin a journey of discovery, both of their parents’ origins and of their own inherited powers, while trying to make up for the evil done by their folks.

Vaughan co-created the series with artist Adrian Alphona. Marvel’s Kevin Feige will produce but a release date is not yet set.
