"Powers" is set in a two-tier society where ordinary humans must coexist with a superior class who, thanks to random distribution, are endowed with any of a smorgasbord of superpowers.
Maintaining order among super-humans places a heavy burden on law enforcement. "Powers" focuses on a pair of homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who investigate cases involving those people of disruptive privilege known as Powers.
Such police work would be a challenging, often thankless assignment for anyone, but it's all the more so for Walker: He used to be a superstar superhero, with a super-bad-guy reputation adding spice to his renown. But then his powers went away.
Today, he's remembered, even jeered, for his bygone spandex-clad identity, Diamond, as he plods through his workdays as a standard-issue gumshoe.
"What's more heroic than 'I lost my super powers, but now I'm gonna speak for those who don't have them'?" asks Brian Michael Bendis, who co-created the "Powers" comic and is an executive producer of the series. "That's massively heroic - probably the most heroic thing he's ever done!".
