Sony PlayStation has debuted three episodes of “Powers,” their adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s Icon Comics series, on the PlayStation Network today, but the pilot episode has also debuted on YouTube for everyone to enjoy! In addition, after you watch the pilot, a new trailer for what’s to come on the series was released, both of which you can check out in the players below.
“Powers,” written by Bendis and drawn by Oeming, follows two detectives as they investigate superhero-related homicides. The series stars Sharlto Copley as Detective Christian Walker and Susan Heyward as Detective Deena Pilgrim. They’re joined by Max Fowler, Adam Godley, Noah Taylor, Olesya Rulin and Eddie Izzard.
Charlie Huston wrote the first episode and serves as showrunner with Remi Aubuchon. 30 Days of Night and “Hannibal” helmer David Slade directed the first two episodes of the series. “Powers” will be free of charge to PlayStation Plus members with a new episode to premiere every Tuesday.
Warning: The series features strong language and violence.
