The Runaways are coming to Battleworld!

No Caption Provided

They are the brightest teens, brought together from all corners of Battleworld to attend the prestigious Doom Institute in the planet’s capital. But this June, they’re going to become…Runaways! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at RUNAWAYS #1, as the cult-favorite hit comes to Secret Wars courtesy of rising comic stars Noelle Stevenson (NIMONA, Lumberjanes) and Sanford Greene (Uncanny Avengers)! Classes, exams, detention. Seems like a normal school, right? Except your headmaster is actually a diabolical super villain, and the final exam is a brutal match to the death! Only one solution: RUN AWAY! Now, super powered teens Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Bucky Barnes, Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Skaar and a few new faces are set loose on Battleworld. If they survive the horrors of the Secret Wars, they just might learn a thing or two. Prepare for a new twist on a modern Marvel classic perfect for fans old and new when RUNAWAYS #1 hits comic shops this June!

@nappystr8: Well, I'm happy that there's FINALLY another Runaways book but, like everything else in the new Secret Wars lines, it can hit really hard and be a great read or fall flat on its face and kill the book... again. I'm hoping for the former. So. Fingers crossed.

Also, Molly is a great character (and one of my favorite heroes of all time) but I'd prefer more familiar faces. Victor? Chase? Nico? Maybe even Old Lace?

Looks like we got pre-Quest for Magik Pixie there as well, albeit with black hair instead of pink. It also looks like Molly has adopted this version of Jubilee as a replacement Nico. Not sure how I feel about that. Still, happy we're getting a Runaways series at all.

I know Brian K. Vaughan is bussy at Image but he's said before that given the right opportunity he would return to Runaways. I'd love to see the classic team assembled again by him.

Just be thankful that it's some lame alternate version of the character. I just hope that post Secret Wars we have the return of the 616-Skaar in the comics. We need a savage, cunning barbarian Hulk. Skaar definitely fits that bill. Plus, I've always wondered what it would be like if he'd encounter the Maestro.

@greenscar1990: That depends how well this book does. Which sucks, I love Runways(wish this was more the actual runways and not just using the name but what can you do). It is like making me pick which I want more, the Skaar I have come to love or the Runways.

@nappystr8: lemme tell you...i HATED the concept of this at first, but i'm slowly coming around. i just wish it had a completely new cast like the first set of teens, rather than reusing heroes that could've been used in other stories.

Then however do you enjoy your comics? :P

I just look at the pictures, as for how I'm typing... I just hit the keyboard and if it looks good I press the big button on the corner

I would have given every book featuring the runaways a chance, but with this cast and setting I only pick it up, if I hear good things about it. I just hope this team isn't continuing post secret wars.

Yeah for Molly

Aww I wanted Jubilee to still be a vampire not have her mutant powers.

Why does Valeria look the same age as Jubille or even Molly on that cover, shes half Molly's age she should be drawn as a wee little girl

Ugh, I stopped reading during the synopsis and I only recognize one Runaway. When did the series become The Faculty?

Avatar image for champion99
Posted By Champion99

I don't think the other Runaways would belong back in a Runaways book. Except Karolina and Klara. All the other wouldn't fit as Runaways. Victor has joined the A.I. Avengers. Chase and Nico are famous. And all of them are above 18 now. They can't stay runaways forever. I think the should have a new team that has actual teens with Molly, Klara, and maybe Karolina. Also, Molly should at least be 15 or 14.

Sigh. It would be better with more actual Runaways. I feel like these Secret Wars series are made by throwing darts at a handbook and using those characters.
