‘Powers’ Cancelled After Two Seasons

The Sony Playstation Network series Powers has, unfortunately, been cancelled after two season. Brian Michael Bendis, who created the comic the show is based on, tweeted out the following announcing the cancellation.

For those unfamiliar, Powers tells the story of a couple of cops who have to deal with crimes in a world with superpowers — and I assume you’re unfamiliar, because chances are you didn’t actually watch the show.

Frankly, sitting on the Playstation Network made the series inaccessible to a large chunk of its potential audience (like people who bought an X-Box One instead of a PS4). The show was meant, in part, to draw more people to watch Sony’s video offerings on their console – but apparently it wasn’t successful in doing so. While that sort of strategy can be effective for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, those only require you to sign up for a subscription fee… not spend hundreds on a console you might not otherwise want.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
