Why the Runaways Adaption Will Be Better Than Marvel's Other Upcoming Series

Just thought I'd do a quick post on why I think the Runaways adaption that is due to be released next year from Marvel will be better than it's other TV projects including Inhumans and Cloak and Dagger. Firstly it's aimed at a different market (teenagers) than other Marvel shows with several of the problems the characters experience specific to that audience. It's not a superhero or spy like comic series but about the characters surviving and struggling to grow up with no parents. There's something for everyone from mutants to witches and aliens. It has a Velociraptor in it but doesn't need massive special effects compared to Inhumans so should look better depending on the budget Inhumans gets. The original storyline about which of the kids is a mole was intriguing and surprisingly I didn't guess who the mole was and I doubt many will. At its most basic the show will answer the question that everyone considers at some point when arguing with their parents: what if they are actually evil?
