According to Netflix, the adaptation centers on a “dysfunctional family of superheroes... as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.”

Page will play Vanya, one of the aforementioned dysfunctional heroes, who actually has no powers or abilities, and is described as “a meek and insecure wallflower” and “the black sheep” of her family. Of course Page has a long history of harnessing super powers, having played the phasing mutant Kitty Pride in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The series is slated to premiere with a 10-episode season in 2018.
