The Runaways are a relatively new superhero team on the comic book scenes, but they’re already in line to get the movie treatment from Marvel. The adaptation is being penned by Brian K. Vaughn, the original creator of Runaways and the writer of a number of top-notch comic series, including Y The Last Man and Pride of Baghdad.
Runaways tells the story of a group of superpowered teens on the run and attempting to step out of the shadows of their evil supervillain parents. Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) had a turn at writing the series recently, and Runaways won a Harvey award in 2006 for Best Series.
