If you’ve been looking for a superhero show that falls well outside the universes of the Big Two, this could be the ticket.
Minor spoilers ahead for Powers Season 2!
Playstation has dropped the first clip from Season 2 of its superhero series Powers, based on Brian Michael Bendis’ long-running comic of the same name about cops in a super-powered world, and we get to meet a brand-new superhero. In the wake of Retro Girl’s death, Calista seems to have picked up a similar power set — and she’s wasting no time stepping into the super-void left behind by Retro Girl.
The new footage kicks off with Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) having an interesting dream sequence looking back at his time as a power, then getting interrupted soon after by a high-flying Calista (Olesya Rulin), who has come to reveal her new powers. Considering Christian just worked the murder scene of Retro Girl, he’s none too keen to see Calista take up the mantle. If you didn't watch the first season, this could be the time to come back. It took some time to find its footing, but Powers quickly grew into one heck of a fun guilty pleasure.
Season 2 of Powers premieres May 31 on Playstation Network.
