Marvel's Runaways Premiere: 7 Ups & 1 Down From The First Three Episodes

The best MCU series of the year?

The latest television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel's Runaways, has just premiered on Hulu, coming hot on the heels of Marvel's The Punisher and serving as the first step of the TV MCU expanding past ABC and Netflix.

Runaways tells the story of a teenage group of former friends having to reunite upon learning that their parents' charity group, The Pride, is actually a congregation of villains who have been operating right under their noses.

The first three episodes have been released, and paint a pretty good picture as to what fans can expect from the series, and the short version is: it's looking good.

Save for one issue, Runaways is a very strong show thus far. In fact, if it keeps up the level of quality it established in its premiere episodes, it's poised to become the best MCU TV series to be released in 2017.

It didn't get that way without all those involved giving their best to create a Marvel show that is both great and distinct from the rest, mind you. So, let's take a look at the reasons why Marvel's Runaways is a must-watch for fans so far (and the one drawback you should prepare for).
