PlayStation's First TV Show Is Promising Really F****d-Up Superheroes

Ok, Sony, you've got my attention.

If you've read Powers—the psychologically tense police proecedural set in a special unit that deals with superhero-related crimes—then you know that it's a series where sex, drugs and ultraviolence get tangled up in some really perverted ways. It's only a teaser but the new trailer for the TV adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's long-running comic book makes it seem like the PlayStation-only show won't be toned down very much at all.

Powers is the first show that Sony's entertainment divisions are producing exclusively for their video game platforms. It's the opening salvo in their bid to build a Netflix-style stable of exclusive filmed entertainment that takes advantage of people who already own a PS3, PS4 or Vita.
