Sony has cancelled Powers, the PlayStation Plus exclusive superhero series produced by Michael Bendis, after two seasons.
Revealing the news on Twitter, Bendis says that fans shouldn't expect any more episodes of the series in the immediate future, but hinted that he hoped there might be a future for Powers yet.

Powers was something of an experiment for Sony, launching the new IP in 2005 as a relatively high production value series and comic simultaneously as an attempt to add more value to the PlayStation Plus package. However, the two series of ten episodes each look to be the extent of the platform holder's dabbling in live action media, with no replacement being publicly considered.
Critical reception for Powers is likely to have been a factor in its demise, with the lukewarm reviews and low audiences not helping its case.
