Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill 1 & 2, Sin City, The Hateful Eight) is officially the newest cast member of Powers. He will come into Season 2 as SuperShock.
SuperShock is considered to be the ultimate “power.” In fact, in the world of Powers, the term “superhero” is said to be coined after him.
The series stars Sharlto Copley and Deena Pilgrim as detectives in the Powers Division of the police department. The Powers Division is a team created to investigate crimes committed by those who have, yep you guessed it, superpowers.
Powers’ Season 1 focused on a mostly original story but Season 2 will be about the uncovering the mysteries behind the death of Retro Girl. This storyline made up the first trade paperback of the comic book which was written by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.
Powers will return to the PlayStation Network as an original series in 2016.
