I think one of Runaways’ strengths was that it wasn’t a book about Teen Superheroes.
Don’t get me wrong, I Love comics about teen heroes. Ms. Marvel and Young Avengers are both explicitly Teen Superhero comics, and that really works for them.
But Runaways was different in that it wasn’t just Teen Superheroes, it was teens living in a world of superheroes and supervillains. Normal teens. They all sort of stumbled into this world when they discovered their parents were supervillains, but they never became a solid part of the world like the Avengers or something. They weren’t the “next generation of heroes”, they were people living on this confusing borderline of civilian and hero. And they didn’t really go on missions or stuff, just solved problems when they came across them.
In the marvel universe, superheroism has become a really political thing, and I think Runaways was really good for marvel’s worldbuilding in a way because it faded the line between Regular People and Heroes in a way a lot of comics haven’t. Because if you have powers, or you have strong connections to the world of heroes and villains, there’s no way you can just live a normal life. So I feel like the Runaways were in a way just normal people living abnormal lives because of their circumstances, and idk, it just worked really well.
