Marvel has released new images from their upcoming Hulu series adaptation of The Runaways. They focus on the six young teenaged heroes in the story.

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents. The Hulu original series is based on the Marvel comics created by the award-winning team of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The book series has won an Eisner, a Harvey and was featured as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association’s best books for young adults.
The series is being developed by the team behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. I've liked everything that I've seen from this series so far and I'm actually excited to see it. It's set to premiere on November 21st.
Gregg Sulkin (Faking It) plays Chase Stein, a heartthrob and star athlete with a knack for engineering, following in the footsteps of his father.
Lyrica Okano (The Affair) plays Nico Minoru, an aspiring Wiccan who gives a standoff perception, aided by her goth appearance, but secretly yearns for someone to talk to.
Rhenzy Feliz (Casual) plays Alex Wilder, the self-proclaimed nerd of the crew who spends most of his time playing video games, longing for the day when he can reunite with his childhood friends.
Virginia Gardner (Goat) plays Karolina Dean, who is saddled with high expectations from her parents, but is eager to spread her wings and prove she's more than just her modelesque looks.
Ariela Barer (New Girl) plays Gert Yorkes, a purple-haired contemporary riot grrrl. She hides her real feelings by taking stands on issues of social justice.
Allegra Acosta (100 Things to Do Before High School) plays the enthusiastic Molly Hernandez, known in the comics as Molly Hayes, who craves to find her place.
