Marvel recently announced the teens who will make up the main cast of Runaways, a Hulu series based on a beloved teen comic from Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. Now, we’ve got a peek at their evil parents, called the Pride, and they’re looking both classy and vicious.

In the series, the Runaways are a group of teenagers who go on the lamb after they discover their parents are full-on supervillains. Even though the teens are lifelong friends in the comic, in the show it looks like they’ll start out as frenemies united against their common enemy—their parents.


Runaways has enough great actors to support two shows, but I love that this project contains multiple generations of incredible talent all in one story,” Vaughn said in a press release.

Ryan Sands and Angel Parker play Geoffrey and Caroline Wilder, the parents of Alex, who’s the loner video game nerd. Brittany Ishibashi is Tina, the mom of Nico, a budding Wiccan; she’s said to be the perfect “tiger mom” (her husband, Robert, played by James Yaegashi, is described as her beta... which is weird as shit).

There’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s James Marsters, who’s playing Chase’s dad Victor, alongside Ever Carradine. Then you’ve got Gert Yorkes’ parents, Dale (Kevin Weisman) and Stacey (Brigid Brannagh), as well as the Deans, Leslie (Annie Wersching) and Frank (Kip Pardue), who are Karolina’s parents.


There’s still no official release date for Runaways, but we’ll keep you posted.
