Well here's some comic news coming from E3 2014. At their E3 press conference earlier this week, Sony announced the live-adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's "Powers" comic series into a 10-episode series for the Playstation Network.

Originally an Image Comics property starting in 2000, the series has since moved to Marvel as part of their Icon line due to Bendis' role as head writer for Marvel properties. "Powers" tells the story of two detectives as they investigate cases involving super powered humans.

This isn't the first time "Powers" was adapted into a television series. In 2011, Bendis had been slated to write a pilot episode for FX channel that ultimately got greenlit by the network. Upon completion of a couple episodes, the show was scrapped and the actors departed from the series. Now "Powers" will see new life with Sony.

The first season of the show will be viewable to Playstation Plus audiences in the United States for free.
