The first season of Marvel and Hulu’s Runaways took its time building out the events of the first issue of the Marvel Comics series—that is, taking 10 episodes for the children of the villainous Pride to actually, you know, run away from their superpowered and if not evil, then at least very morally ambiguous, parents. By building out the story between when Alex, Nico, and their friends discovered their parents’ secrets and when they went on the run, the series has laid plenty of narrative groundwork for season 2. Judging from the first teaser, that means delving into their inherited superpowers and deciding whether or not they can ever return home.
The season 1 finale ended with the kids framed for Destiny’s death, but they don’t seem as concerned with that in the first teaser. The fun short is mostly concerned with the Runaways discovering their new hideout—a swanky abandoned hotel—and training themselves and each other to better understand their respective artifacts or powers. That means wacky car chases, Karolina lit up like the aurora borealis, accidentally lighting bodies on fire, Molly lifting any obstacle, more Karolina/Nico, and Old Lace jumping anyone who dares cross the Runaways.
Runaways season 2 premieres December 21 on Hulu.
