Powers: What if the World was Full of Superheroes who aren’t Actually Heroic at all?

This looks like an interesting and fun premise for a TV show (although perhaps not totally original, with aspects of X-Men and Hancock in there):

Powers, an edgy dramatic series from Sony Pictures Television and inspired by Brian Michael Bendis’ graphic novel series of the same name, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, referred to as “Powers.” Set amidst today’s paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the only people brave enough to go up against the overpaid, commercialized, superhumans who glide through the sky imposing their power over the crowds below who both worship and fear them.

Certainly some decent actors involved as well, including Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) and Noah Taylor (Shine, A Game of Thrones).
