Critics Consensus

Earnest, fun, and more balanced than its source material, Runaways finds strong footing in an over-saturated genre.

Critic Reviews for Marvel's Runaways Season 1

All Critics (81) | Top Critics (21)

But this first part of the season, at least, doesn't seize that opportunity to stand out. Like most teenagers, Runaways just wants to fit in.

The superpowers-as-coming-of-age-story works so well, and why Marvel's Runaways has so much promise despite a slow start.

Nov 21, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's off to an incredibly compelling start, thanks to Schwartz and Savage's confident storytelling, and should it keep moving forward at its current pace, it could become a truly addictive hit. As it is, it's one of Marvel's most promising series to date.

Nov 21, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Runaways, the comic and the television series, are both built on the same, solid premise: What if your parents were actually as evil as you convinced yourself they were, when you were a teenager?

If Runaways was just about the oppression of children, it would be unbearably bleak. Luckily, it's also about children discovering their power.

Marvel's Runaways catapults us into the future, where demographics match those of reality and you can be attracted to whoever the hell you want.

What is undeniable is that it is a different Marvel's adaptation: It has neither the adventurous and fun style of the movies nor the criminal thriller of the Netflix series. [Full Review in Spanish]

They're interesting kids facing a well thought out world so color me interested in the rest of the season.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Watching Runaways is like drinking a milkshake laced with vodka - luxurious sweetness married to breathtaking bite.

Feb 16, 2019 | Full Review…

I was surprised by Runaways, it's a really fun series to follow, and I'm looking forward to a second season next year.

Feb 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The first two or three episodes stick to the much-utilised Marvel formula, but once it starts digging beneath the surface stereotypes, hold tight, because this show is NOT what you think it is

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Definitely better than the other Marvel shows out there.

    This one was good too

    I enjoyed the comic and the show!

    I gave this show a chance - watched the first 5 episodes. I thought this was going to be a show about super heroes. Instead, the focus of the show is on a very bland teenage drama. Even situations like attempted rape and murder are glossed over in order to focus on the relatively shallow emotions of the teens. The parents seem almost ambivalent about killing kids - just a hint here and there that they wished they didn't have to murder children. The story of the abusive father is similarly glossed over. And the real reason we all watch super hero shows - SUPER POWERS - is only there as sort of a decoration on top of all the garbage plots and shallow drama they have going on.

    This season serves to introduce the series and the characters. In addition, the soundtrack is very good and the visual effects are excellent for a series like this.

    Tries to hard to connect with a youth culturethat doesn't exist outside of a deranged mind.

    This show adds another amazing layer to the Marvel Universe. The plot and the character arcs are nothing short of amazing. The actors have great chemistry, and the story line is unpredictable in the best way. I highly recommend this show!
