Storyline

The Power's kids have been given superhuman abilities, but that doesn't necessarily mean that adjusting to a new home will be any easier. Alex still needs to find his science book for class, Jack loses his retainer down the drain, Julie's room is a mess, and the youngest Katie just wants to be invited to play with the neighborhood kids. They each subtly use their powers to get by, but not with the approval of their parents who wish for the children to act normal enough so as to not attract undue attention. A typical day at school soon finds Jack accepting a challenge; to go into the abandoned spooky mansion of former circus owner Dr. Mobius. There Jack and his friends are soon startled and leave, but not before Jack picks up a medallion lying on the floor. Soon the object begins taking its toll on the Power's kids with an ominous storm overhead, and the phantom of Dr. Mobius beaconing for its return. Now Alex, Jack and little sis Katie have to enter the creepy mansion of Dr. Mobius if... Written by -Written by Nolan Hubbard<nohvarrmarvel1@gmail.com>

Power Pack Gets The Goosebumps Treatment

In 1984 Marvel Comics published the first issue of "Power Pack", a comic written and drawn by women revolving around four siblings that receive powers from a dying alien. I was a huge fan of "Power Pack" when it first was published and bought the series from the first issue. I was not much older than Alex was in the comic, and I was very much a shy, bookish type like Julie. The comic was something I could relate to more than other, adult heroes, and it had a huge impact on me. I consider the this to be my all-time favorite Marvel comic series.

After the comic was canceled this TV pilot was made. The story involves the four Power siblings, Alex, Julie, Jack and Katie, moving into a new home, adjusting to a new school and confronting the ghost of a circus owner.

This TV pilot substantially changes the way the characters look in the comics as well as lessening their powers. Also, the parents are aware of their kids powers, something that wasn't done in the comics until later in the series. The story plays more like a Goosebumps episode (although that series was produced later) than an adaptation of the comic book. It may not please all fans of the comic, but it's still entertaining.
