What The Critics Say (Metascore 66)
- The Breakfast Club meets X-Men with a splash of Stranger Things thrown in, Marvel’s Runaways is the richest, best-realized Marvel drama of the new TV season. — Matt Webb Mitovich, TVLine
- So no, this Runaways isn’t a literal recreation of a beloved comic. But it works in its own right, and feels more fun and durable than a lot of its Marvel TV counterparts. — Alan Sepinwall, UPROXX
- It remains to be seen where Runaways will go when the show really establishes what the powers of these teen heroes are–in these early episodes, it’s all the producers can do to simply sketch in the personalities of what is, when you add in the parents, a very large main cast. Right now, there’s a nice tension here between the ways adolescents often tend to isolate versus the ways they’re forced to come together as a team. — Ken Tucker, Yahoo TV
