Michael Madsen Scores Super Villain Role In ‘Powers’

'Powers' Casts Michael Madsen as SuperShock

‘Powers’ is to return to the Sony Playstation Network for a second series and joining the cast will be Michael Madsen who is to play the villainous SuperShock.

Madsen of course is best known for his various roles in movies such as ‘Species’, ‘Kill Bill 1+2’ and ‘Reservoir Dogs’ so he has plenty of experience when it comes to playing the tough guy.

PlayStation and Sony Pictures Television’s official description for the character defines him as “a perfect physical specimen with an unparalleled presence that catapulted him to global fame. After retiring at the height of his career under mysterious circumstances and disappearing from public view, he emerges for the first time in forty years after the death of Retro Girl.”

Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Oeming, the co-creators of the ‘Powers’ comic series, announced SuperShock would join the show at this past Comic-Con International in San Diego. At the time, no one had been cast in the role.

“Super-Shock is the most powerful superhero in the ‘Powers’ universe,” Bendis explained. “With him comes a whole new set of problems and achievements. With Retro Girl’s death, Super-Shock comes out of wherever he’s been and we’ll discover a lot about the ‘Powers’ universe through him and Walker and Deena’s relationship.”

“This is the biggest superhero in the world. Superheroes were named after him. He never took an advertisement dollar, he never was in product placement. He kept it pure for decades and decades,” he added.
