The Stephen King Universe

Carrie is one real friend away from being a superhero origin.

Which would totally work, though obviously she’d need monsters and villains to fight as she makes her lonely way through high school. Buffy The Angry Telekinetic. The new film shows this in particular as she tests and researches her power as it manifests.

(Firestarter meanwhile totally is a superhero origin. And it’s a shame that we never got a crossover episode in The Dead Zone...)

  1. Has Stephen King ever written any superhero comics?

    1. Nope, though he co-created American Vampire and oversaw an adaptation of The Stand and some Dark Tower comics.

    3. No worries. I contain much useless trivia. (But can't remember how to wire a plug. :D )
