Hulu’s Marvel’s The Runaways

You may have thought that your parents were bad, but they were probably not as bad as the parent in The Runaway’s Hulu’s original Marvel Teen Soap Opera, or Super Hero Show, or Family Drama… Or how about you just pick a genre.  Join us as we discuss the show and comic with Andrew Darowski from both The Protagonist Podcast and Disney Animated Minute Essentials. What did you think of the show?

Discussion Topics

  • What Genre is this Show?. Is it a superhero show? A teen soap opera? A drama about rich people with fancy problems? Does the mix of genres make this show more interesting, or less so?
  • A common drama plot device is to bring together a group of strangers who don’t have a lot in common and build them into a team. A common way to strengthen their bonds is to give them a common enemy. What is the common enemy in Runaways?
  • Why can the Heroes never be happy?
  • How Heavy do you feel that the social commentary is?
  • How does this tie into the Greater Marvel Cinematic Universe / MCNU

Join the Fun

We’re doing another Funko Pop give away on Valentine’s Day and so sign up to be a patron at before then to enter to win.

Quick note on why we’re using patreon. While I would be lying to say that I didn’t want this podcast to become a primary income for the three of us, when not in the Fandomverse I try to live in reality. Patreon is a way (for the most part) that we can be in touch with the people who really listen and care. Podcast Reviews can be faked, downloads can be purchased, twitter and facebook can be manipulated but seeing you guys put your support behind a few of your fellow geeks is inspiring, and it’s really neat getting to know you as we interact.

If you’re listening and have been thinking about pledging but aren’t quite sure if you want to, reach out to us, and ask a question, fandom related or not we will answer it. We are on Facebook, Twitter and email.
