It's been an interesting road getting Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oemings' Powers from comic page to screen. First shot as a pilot for FX in 2011, starring Jason Patric and Lucy Punch, the project stalled when execs weren't crazy about the final presentation. It hovered around there for a few more years, being retooled for clarity and tone, until Sony finally shifted it over to their PlayStation Network where it's become the platform's first ever original series.

Now with a new writer, new cast, and David Slade as the premiere's director, Powers is ready to take to the skies and come to life. I won't spend too long going over the premise of the Powers world in this review, nor will I spoil much of anything. And to those who're familiar with the comics, keep in mind that while most of the original characters remain, many of them have been revamped, shifted around, and tinkered with. As has the original gateway mystery. So you're not getting a straight replication of the books here.

But, of course, it's still about the brooding Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and petite hot-head Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward) - two detectives in the LAPD's run-down Powers Division. Tasked with handling crimes committed by those with superpowers.

With their city drowning in the weird drug known as Float, the Victories bust a major operation, only to have their leader's mind scanned by an evil psychic who plans to use this knowledge for the superhero team's destruction.

"[Michael Avon Oeming's] work has such brilliant formatting, use of negative space, dramatic light and dark contrasts, emotion, and style that it really is a joy to behold." -comic Booked
