Marvel Studios is readying an adaptation of its comic book series The Runaways, to be helmed by Brian K. Vaughan, a co-producer and writer on Lost and creator of the acclaimed comic series Y: The Last Man.
Launched in 2002, the critically acclaimed comic 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.
