I have a very uneven relationship with superhero parodies. I’m a big hero fan, and a lot of them really fall flat with me, taking obvious routes to making stupid jokes that I’ve heard countless times before. However, I have a great deal of faith in Patton Oswalt.
I’m fairly well-read in most superhero comic books. I don’t manage to read everything, because I don’t have that kind of time or money. Marvel’s Runaways is one of the properties I know next to nothing about, so I was intrigued when I heard it was getting made in to a live action series on Hulu.
