The young cast of Marvel and Hulu’s teen superhero show Runaways have been revealed…
1. Rhenzy Feliz – Alex Wilder
Alex Wilder is the leader of the Runaways. Though he doesn’t have any superpowers of which to speak of, he is a child prodigy whose quick wits serve him and the team well.
2. Lyrica Okano – Nico Minoru
The daughter of two master sorcerers, goth girl Nico possesses the Staff of One – a powerful magical item that appears out of her body to protect her whenever she is injured.
3. Virginia Gardner – Karolina Dean
Karolina is the daughter of Hollywood stars Frank and Leslie Dean – who she discovers are actually aliens. Which kinda makes her an alien too, complete with light and flight powers.
4. Ariela Barer – Gert Yorkes
New Yorker and social justice warrior Gert is actually the daughter of time travellers, with a pet dinosaur who she shares a telepathic link with. The pair calls themselves Arsenic and Old Lace.
5. Gregg Sulkin – Chase Stein
The oldest of the bunch, 18-year-old Chase hides his technological genius – inherited from his mad scientist parents, along with some hi-tech gloves – behind a laid-back, slacker persona.
6. Allegra Acosta – Molly Hernandez
Molly (Hayes, in the comics) might be the youngest of the bunch but she is also the muscle of the Runaways – thanks to her superhuman strength, courtesy of her being a mutant.
