Power Pack is a fanfictional American television series premiering on Disney Channel &/or Disney XD, produced by It's a Laugh Productions & inspired by the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. Power Pack will be the first Disney Channel Original Series to feature Marvel characters since The Walt Disney Company's acquisition of Marvel Entertainment in 2009.
In 1991, following the cancellation of the original comic, Marvel developed Power Pack into a live-action show for NBC's Saturday children's television lineup. While a pilot episode was made, the series was not picked up. The pilot has been aired several times during regular children's programming on Fox as a Saturday morning special. Minor alterations to the concept were made for the pilot, ranging from the children's parents being aware of their superhuman abilities, Julie's acceleration power being altered to movement at superhuman speed, without the ability to fly, & the "cloud" aspect of Jack's density power being eliminated—he was only able to shrink in size. The children did not wear costumes.
In the original comic book series, the Kymellians resemble anthromorphic horses. In the television series, the Kymellians' appearance is changed into somewhat Ipotane-like, humanoid aliens with horse-like characteristics. As for the Snarks, their appearances were changed to somewhat reptilians.
Furthermore, to make the series more appropriate for children, some of the matter used in the comics (e.g., pollution, drug abuse, runaways, kidnapping, gun violence, bullying, orphanhood, & homelessness, etc.) have been lowered.
As with the comic book series, the series is set in New York City. The lives of siblings Alex, Julie, Jack, & Katie Power change when they come into contact with an alien named Aelfyre, whose race, the Kymellians, are at war with the notorious reptillian Snarks. Before dying, Aelfyre passes his powers to the children, & they use their newly inherited powers to become the superhero team Power Pack. Now, with the Earth targeted by the Kymellians' archenemy, the Power Pack fight against the Snarks & especially a corrupt colleague of their father's who will stop at nothing to get rid of the kids.
Later on in the series, the Power Pack are joined by Frankie, a friend of Alex's who was born with powers, & Kofi, the prince & heir to the Kymellian Empire & cousin of Aelfyre.
- Alexander "Alex" Power (played by TBA): The oldest of the Power Pack siblings at age 12; Alex acts as their leader, but his temper sometimes causes them trouble. His main power is control over gravity.
- Julie Power (played by TBA): The second oldest of the four Power siblings at age 10, Julie is perhaps the most "normal" of the Power siblings. When she isn't in "superhero mode", Julie can be quite shy & quiet. Julie is also a voracious reader, & was frequently seen reading, carrying, or quoting books. Her main power is unaided flight by means of rapid forward propulsion that leaves a highly visible tri-colored band of light in her wake.
- Jack Power (played by TBA): The second youngest of the four Power siblings at age 7. Brash & ornery, Jack is the "wild child" of the Power siblings. He frequently insults & argues with both his teammates & his adversaries.
- Katherine Margaret "Katie" Power (played by Mia Talerico): The youngest of the four Power siblings at age 5. Katie is highly suggestible for her age. She is frequently goaded into using her powers by her siblings & looks to them for instructions. Consequently, she is responsible for significant damage to both buildings & some of Power Pack's enemies. Her eldest brother, unofficial team leader Alex, bullies her to such an extent that she compares him to Power Pack's archenemy, Queen Maraud.
- Franklin Richards (played by TBA): Alex's best friend who, sometime during the series, is somewhat suspicious of his friend & his siblings' powers. Later on, Frank reveals that he's the son of Mr. Fantastic & the Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four. He later joins the Power Pack and his powers include precognition, astral projection (dreamform/self), & limited telepathy.
- Kofi Whitemane (played by TBA): The young prince & heir to the Kymellian Empire & cousin of Aelfyre. Crash landing on Earth to escape the Snarks, Kofi seeks out the Power Pack & assists them. As with all Kymellians, Kofi's powers include teleportation, energy projection, gravity alteration, healing, force field projection, & air manipulation.
