Powers comes to the small screen – we hope

powers

Powers is set in a world where superpowers are relatively common but not mundane. It follows the lives of two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, police officers in a Homicide department devoted to cases that involve “powers” (people with superpowers).

Created by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Michael Von Oeming Powers is probably my favourite superhero comic and now it’s coming to television.

At last weeks New York Comi Con Bendis confirmed that the pilot is in active production on the FX channel.  He’s already handed in the first draft and is waiting for their notes.  I’m kinda hoping here that any notes the studio have are not gonna change this project beyond recognition.

As usual with a project I love I’m nervous.  Will the hand of the studio be too obvious?  Well it’s a small channel so maybe their hands on policy will be a little more lenient??? Having Bendis so heavily involved bodes well in my mind.

Will the pilot go the way of Warren Ellis Global Frequency which had a fantastic pilot and yet the series never got made?

Will it make the transition from page to screen that so many have not *cough* Birds of Prey*.

I’m crossing fingers toes and unmentionables cos I really really want this one to kick ass
