The classic duo is coming to small screens next year – get a first look here!
Tyrone “Ty” Johnson and Tandy Bowen first appeared in 1982 in an issue of Spectacular Spider-Man. Since then the two have teamed up with the X-Men, the Secret Avengers, and the Secret Defenders among others. The duo will be coming to ABC’s Freeform next year in a series that is decidedly made for a young adult audience. It looks like the series will pull in some ideas from The Runaways period of their history. Take a look…
The comic confronts a lot of real world themes – race, addiction, abuse – that if handled properly could make for a good series that challenges its audience. The showrunner is Joe Pokaski – who ran the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil – so it has a leg up on the ability to handle darker themes.
The series premiers next year on Freeform.
