According to reports, Marvel TV is developing a "New Warriors" TV series with ABC, based on the Marvel Comics series, as a 10-part, 30-minute live-action comedy at Freeform:
"...'New Warriors' revolves around six people with 'powers', living and working together. With abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of the 'Avengers', the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world ... even if the world isn't ready.
"With Freeform focused on a group dubbed 'becomers', ie. those experiencing a series of firsts in life including first loves and first jobs, New Warriors explores their journey into adulthood. Except in this world, they're not quite super and not yet heroes and the guys can be as terrifying as bad dates..."
Similar to DC's "Teen Titans", The New Warriors debuted in Marvel's "The Mighty Thor" #411 (December 1989).
The original New Warriors was created by editor Tom DeFalco who brought together existing Marvel comic book characters 'Firestar', »

Every college freshman learns about price elasticity in Economics 101. Price elasticity simply means that consumers will be more accepting of price changes for some products than for others. And as I’ve been watching the CW’s new Riverdale television series, I’m translating this economic concept to Geek Culture. Specifically, I’m mesmerized how some fans embrace changes to pop culture properties with a Geek Culture Elasticity and others just can’t embrace changes.
Long-time Archie fans – he is, after all, celebrating his 75th anniversary this year – are wrapping their heads around this latest television incarnation. The new Riverdale show is a steamy and creepy manifestation of beloved characters that ostensibly represent Americana. Unlike their traditional comic counterparts, these versions of the characters were driven by dark and base motivations that are a part of real people (albeit gorgeous and glamorous versions of real people).
I really liked the show. »
