Way back in /kevin-falls-and-brian-michael-bendis-to-adapt-powers-for-fx/January of 2010, FX President and General Manager John Landgraf revealed that the network was moving forward on a series adaptation of the hit comic book Powers, which follows two homicide detectives devoted to working "super power" cases in a world where comic book heroes are relatively common but not considered mundane.

Today, Brian Michael Bendis, who co-created the comic with Michael Avon Oeming, revealed via his Twitter account that the Powers pilot has officially been greenlit by FX.

"Powers pilot was just greenlit by FX! it's official! your window of reading Powers while it was still cool is running out :)"

This announcement comes a decade after Sony optioned the rights for a big screen adaptation, which never happened. The Walking Dead's Charles H. Eglee has written the pilot and will serve as a producer alongside Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming, Michael Dinner, and David Engel.

The series will come from Circle of Confusion, the company behind The Walking Dead. David Engel, director of the Justified and Sons of Anarchy pilots, will helm this first episode.
