Powers is the story of two detectives solving cases in a superpowered city.
Powers iis the first television series made by Playstation.
Powers has… this crazy-looking female Geordi La Forge.
This is just one of many images that Playstation has just released. Yes, Playstation- they’re getting into the TV game, which means Powers is only viewable on a Playstation console (one with Internet access, obviously- PS3, PS4, PSP or Vita).
And none of these other images look so… unique (“unique” being the word I’m using so I can avoid saying “cheap-looking”). They look like this:
Totally normal (all of the images- and there are a few more- are available over at Comingsoon.net). And yet, there she is. Plastic wrap shoes. Weird crinkly dress. Headgear stolen from poor Geordi.
On closer inspection, it’s clear- she’s supposed to be Zora, from the Powers comics. But Zora looks like this:
And her look hasn’t quite translated to screen. It’s comic-accurate enough… it just looks a little too much like cheap cosplay. Hopefully it looks better in motion- and we’ll be seeing a first look at Powers at NY Comic Con in October.
Otherwise the idea of TV on a Playstation may be over as soon as it begins.
