The first season of Hulu's Runaways, based on the Marvel comic created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, has come to its conclusion. The show's first story arc left us with a lot of questions unanswered, while providing just enough teases and revelations to make us want to come back for more.
But we don't just have questions about things Season 1 left unresolved. There's also a lot of things we would love to see addressed or added to the show in its sophomore season, some teased, some not teased, and some drawn straight from the comics.
The Runaways Finally Run Away... But to Where?
After ten episodes of the Runaways sticking fairly close to home, the season 1 finale, "Hostile," ended with the team finally living up to their name and actually running away, but leave the question of where they're going to go up in the air. With their names and pictures all over the news, taking a bus out of town is out of the question, and the number one home for teen runaways in Los Angeles County, the Church of the Gibborim, is completely out of the question. Fortunately, Alex managed to get some cash from Darius, his dad's former-partner-turned-adversary, so the kids won't quite be living hand to mouth. But they're still going to need a safe place to call home base.
The newspaper we glimpsed at the end of the episode—which read "Earthquake Watch: Is LA Next?"—might offer something of a clue. In the comics, the team shacked up in an old mansion swallowed into the ground in an earlier earthquake. While a subterranean mansion is probably a bit too unbelievable, an abandoned house damaged in an earthquake could be a nice compromise. Regardless of where it ends up being, we're looking forward to seeing the Runaways new hideout, if only to see how they go about dinosaur-proofing it.
