Even with the X-Men First Class movie getting so much press, I have to say I'm more excited to see Runaways getting the film treatment. Runaways is the late 20th/21st century teen team in comics, in my opinion. Like the Teen Titans were to the 80s. Sorry, Young Avengers. As I and some of my students have pointed out, Runaways is like Hinton's Outsiders, with super-powers: poignant, engaging, and capturing a certain zeitgeist of youth culture.
