Powers: NYCC Wrap-up, Panel Highlights

New York Comic Con has come and gone and the POWERS trailer is out there now for the world to see. We can’t thank you enough for all of your support and kind words of encouragement. We’re having a blast working on this show and we hope you’ll enjoy watching it as much as we love sharing it with you. With that, here are some of the highlights from the day. If you’re looking for a quick recap of the exciting tidbits we threw out during the panel, jump below the video.


Powers: NYCC Wrap-up, Panel Highlights

The big news is that while the entire series is free for PlayStation Plus members, the first episode will be made available via channels like YouTube, Crackle and PlayStation Store, so you can see it whether or not you have a PlayStation or PlayStation Plus. But if you’ve seen the trailer you know that the show will have a lot of mature content, so keep that in mind when you watch. We also announced during the panel that I’ll be writing one of the final episodes of season one.

In keeping true to the fans of the comics, co-creator Michael Avon Oeming’s art (along with other well-known comic book artists like David Mack, David Marquez and Mike Allred) will be visible in the show through various art in Retro Girl’s apartment — as well as drawings of an exciting new character.

Another cool tease that came out of the panel is that episode 5 will show a flashback to Walker’s former life as “Diamond” before his powers were stolen from him. And there’s plenty more where that came from.

Stay tuned as we get closer to launch for behind the scenes clips, teases and more. Follow @POWERStheSERIES on Twitter and check back on PlayStation.Blog for more details on POWERS, coming this winter.

  • Can we get a premiere date or at least a rough estimate?

  • Look a few lines above your post…

    Comes out this winter. That’s a pretty good rough estimate.

  • Imagine if the money spent on this was spent on Driveclub servers, and the Plus edition? And weather, replays, etc?

  • great man,

  • I for one got a LOT more interested in this show when I saw that great trailer. Eager to see how this shapes up!

  • I honestly had not heard of Powers before E3 this year, but I can now say I am very happy Sony and Playstation are experimenting like this. This series looks like it is going to be really cool and I am definitely gonna tell all my friends about it. The more I see, the more I can’t wait for it to start.

  • any specifics on GLBT characters? no plot spoilers, of course, but it’ll take more than a barrage of expletives in the trailer to convince me it’s differentiating itself.

  • November should be
