Hot from its debut at the Powers panel at New York Comic Con, the first trailer for Sony Playstation's live action Powers TV show is now online. Based on the Image-then-Icon comic series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Powers is the story of two detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), assigned to investigate crimes involving "Powers" -- people with superhuman abilities.
After several attempts to get a TV show based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comic series Powers off the ground at FX, Sony Pictures TV has announced it will launch the show on the PlayStation video game console.
There's no official, set date for when the series will start. It also isn't clear whether it will follow the Netflix model of all the season's episodes going up at once, or if the new series will at all resemble the pilot on which FX passed in 2012. The season will reportedly be 10 episodes.

Charlie Huston is one of the many novelists brought into Marvel by Axel Alonso, alongside Duane Swierczynski, Mike Benson, Gregg Hurwitz, and Jonathan Maberry. While all of them have seen some success, particularly Swierczynski on "Cable," Huston had a strong run on "Moon Knight," revamping the character for the new Marvel Universe and solidifying his reputation as "the crazy hero."
